Multitenancy enables you to isolate data, with only one instance of Orchestrator. This feature facilitates automating different departments from your company and ensures the desired authorization of Orchestrator data per department. However, please note that all the data is stored in the same database.
The following Orchestrator components are separated by tenants:
- Settings (including licenses)
- Organization Units (if enabled)
Multitenancy is enabled by default and cannot be disabled. The Become a tenant option in the login page is disabled. To display this option, select the Enable tenant registration check box in the host Settings page.
While installing Orchestrator, a host admin, which is also known as a System Administrator, is created. The host admin has rights to create new tenants, change application settings and audit password changes, create, update, register, and delete actions on settings, tenants, and users. The Profile page enables host admins to change their general information and password, as well as view the last login attempts with the current credentials.
The Default tenant is also automatically created when installing Orchestrator, as your first tenant. Each tenant has a tenant admin, created as a local user which has the Administrator role. The tenant admin cannot be deleted or disabled, but you can edit its information in the Users page.
A tenant can be enabled or disabled at any point, in the Tenants page, by the System Admin.
If you are logged in with a tenant different than the default one, its name is displayed in the User menu, along with the username, next to the Alerts notification icon.
You can change the language using the drop-downs displayed on multiple pages at host and tenant levels. You have two options to choose from: English and 日本語. The default is English.
According to their position on the pages, there are two types of drop-downs:
A. On the General tab - The language settings here affect the user interface at host level, the Login page, while also propagating at tenant level. The only way for the propagated language to take effect is if no other local changes have been made.
B. On the left-hand menu - The language settings here affect the user interface at host level only. This drop-down has priority over the first one.
- If I choose English on A, and Japanese (日本語) on B, the user interface at host level is going to be in Japanese, while at tenant level, English is propagated.
At this level, the drop-downs are disposed the same as at host level:
C. On the General tab - The language settings here affect the interface for the current user, while also propagating to the other users in the tenant. The only way for the propagated language to take effect is if no other local changes have been made for each user. This drop-down has priority over A.
D. On the left-hand menu - The language settings here affect the interface for the current user only. This drop-down has priority over C, and implicitly over A as well.
- If I choose English on C, and Japanese (日本語) on D, the user interface for the current user is going to be in Japanese, while for the other users in the tenant, English is propagated.
- If no language-related changes are done at this level (C or D), then the language selected on A has been propagated both to the current user and to the others in the tenant.
Bear in mind the following:
- When choosing the language for the user interface, the users' choice from the left-hand menu has priority over any other settings at any other level.
- "Propagated" doesn't necessarily mean the changes take effect, it means they are transmitted to the inferior levels. They only take effect if no local changes have been made on those levels.
- In Orchestrator, Robot-pertaining information is always displayed in the language of the Robot. As a result, it is possible, for example, to have some information in English and some in Japanese or vice-versa.
- The stack trace on the Info field in the Job Details window, is displayed in English, regardless of what language was chosen by the user.
- The Login page is always displayed in whatever language is set at host level, on the General tab, unless you change it manually from the drop-down on the page itself.
- The Become a Tenant and Reset Password pages are displayed in the language on the Login page, unless you change it manually from the drop-downs on the pages themselves.
- The confirmation and reset-password emails are sent in the language of the current user.
In some cases, you might need to refresh the page, or log out and then log back in such that all elements on the page are localized.
