5.1.How to create a new tenant
In contentACCESS, only a user with system administrator permissions has the right to create a new tenant. For creating a new tenant, navigate to System ⇒ Tenants ⇒ Tenants button. Click on the button to open the Tenants page. On this page you may find the list of all tenants, which are present in contentACCESS. If you have not added a tenant to contentACCESS yet, the list is obviously empty. To add a new tenant to the list, click on + new. The Add new tenant dialog will open.
When you are creating a new tenant the same time you need to add a tenant administrator user for it. Type the Tenant name into the textbox first. You have now multiple choices how to create a tenant administrator:
A) With selecting Use existing user as an administrator for this tenant radio button — select an existing contentACCESS user from the Select user dropdown list and click OK. This user already has contentACCESS credentials which he will use to log into contentACCESS Central Administration;
B) If you choose option Create new tenant administrator radio button:
1. Type a Display name for this new user,
2. Select a login provider configuration from the Login type dropdown list (Forms, Windows etc.). Only a provider configuration set up in Login providers control (System tab ⇒ Security ⇒ Login providers) can be selected here. Forms and Windows are enabled by default. It is required to enter the Login name and Login password only in case that the Forms type has been selected from the list. In case of Windows, only the login name must be filled in.
If you filled the required fields click OK. The already created tenant will appear in the tenant list on the Tenants page. With a left click on the ellipsis (…) the tenant context menu can be opened. The menu allows to edit the tenant name or tenant limitations, to delete the tenant or manage access to it.
