Editing a tenant account

You can edit a tenant account to change the display name, change the identity source setting, allow or disallow platform services, or enter a storage quota.

Before you begin


  1. Select Tenants.
    The Tenant Accounts page appears.
    Tenant Accounts page
  2. Select the tenant account you want to edit.
    If your system includes more than 20 items, you can specify how many rows are shown on each page at one time. You can then use your browser's find feature to search for a specific item in the currently displayed rows.
  3. Select Edit Account.

  4. Change the values for the fields as required.
    1. Change the display name for this tenant account.
    2. Change the setting of the Uses Own Identity Source checkbox to determine whether the tenant account will use its own identity source or the identity source that was configured for the Grid Manager.
      If the tenant has already enabled its own identity source, you cannot unselect the Uses Own Identity Source checkbox. A tenant must disable its identity source before it can use the identity source that was configured for the Grid Manager.
    3. Change the setting of the Allow Platform Services checkbox to determine whether the tenant account can use platform services for their S3 buckets.
      Attention: If you disable platform services for a tenant who is already using them, the services that they have configured for their S3 buckets will stop working. No error message is sent to the tenant. For example, if the tenant has configured CloudMirror replication for an S3 bucket, they can still store objects in the bucket, but copies of those objects will no longer be made in the external S3 bucket that they have configured as an endpoint.
    4. For Storage Quota, change the number of maximum number of gigabytes, terabytes, or petabytes available for this tenant's objects, or leave the field blank if you want this tenant to have an unlimited quota.
      A tenant's storage quota represents a logical amount (object size), not a physical amount (size on disk).
      Note: You can monitor tenant storage usage from the Dashboard in the Tenant Manager or with the Tenant Management API. Note that a tenant's storage usage values might become out of date if nodes are isolated from other nodes in the grid. The totals will be updated when network connectivity is restored.
