Managing domains

Your ThingPark Enterprise subscription can be partitioned into several administrative domains to serve multiple tenants. You can restrict user access to a subset of base stations, devices, multicast groups and connections by associating them with domains and setting domain restrictions for individual user accounts. To learn more, see About domains.

If you are entitled to an Administrator role, then you can manage domains and perform the following actions.

Adding domains

  1. In Administration > Domains, click ADD DOMAIN.

    -> The ADDING A DOMAIN form opens.

  2. In Group, select an existing domain group and go to step 3, or click Add a group to add a new group as explained below.

    -> The Adding a domain group form opens.

    Adding a domain group

    1. Name your domain group. The domain group name cannot exceed 20 characters nor include trailing spaces.

      Warning

      Once added, the domain group name cannot be changed.

    2. In Color, select a badge color to be used when displaying domains belonging to this domain group. Default color is gray. Select one of the eight pre-selected colors, or click More colors to open the pad color and select another one.

    3. (Optional) In the Description frame, write any useful information regarding your domain group.

    4. Click ADD.

  6. (Optional) If you want to add another domain in the same group, tick Add another.

  7. Click ADD.

    • Each line where the name is in a badge is a domain
    • A domain group is followed by its domains in the list
    • Domain groups are listed in alphabetical order
    • Domains are listed in alphabetical order for each domain group

Associating domain restrictions to user accounts and service accounts

Domain restrictions can be associated with user accounts and service accounts during the initial creation step or by updating existing accounts.

To learn more about user accounts, see Managing user accounts.
