About tenant management

MSP administrator registers a tenant with all the relevant information.

In a multi-tenant deployment, the tenants see only their own data. NetVault’s multi-tenant environment includes a Manage Service Provider administrator, multiple tenant administrator and tenant users. Each tenant user role has distinct responsibilities and its associated activities. Each tenant has its own set of tenant user groups, roles, and privileges. Tenant administrators have access to data only within boundaries of own tenant account and different tenant's data is isolated from each other.

All tenant users must be added in AD and must be part of AD usergroups. MSP administrator then registers a tenant group with all relevant information, and assigns privileges to this group. Once the tenant user from the tenant user group logs-in to NetVault for the first time, the tenant name reflects in the tenant user list. Each tenant must have two unique AD user groups, one group for tenant administrator and another for tenant users. Where all users in tenant's administrators group is required to perform tenant administrators task in NetVault Server. Tenant administrator can modify tenants allocated user groups, policies, and client groups.
