Managing the tenant list


By default, the tenant list on the Tenants page includes all existing tenants. The tenants are listed 20 at a time in ascending order by tenant name.

You can page through, sort, and filter the list of tenants. The Tenants page indicates which tenants are shown out of the total number of tenants in the current list.

Paging

You can change the number of tenants shown at a time on the Tenants page. To do this, in the Items per page field, select the number of tenants you want. The options are 10, 20, and 50.

To page forward or backward through the tenant list, click on the next ( TenantForward.png ) or back ( TenantBack.png ) control, respectively.

To jump to a specific page in the tenant list:

1.In the Page field, type the page number you want.

2.Press Enter.

Sorting

You can sort the tenant list in ascending or descending order by tenant name, management network, data access network, or hard quota. To sort the list, click on the column heading for the property you want to sort by. Each time you click on the column heading, the sort order switches between ascending and descending.

Filtering

You can filter the tenant list by tenant name, management network, data access network, or tag. The filtered list includes only those tenants with a name, management network, data access network, or tag, as applicable, that begins with or is the same as a specified text string.

You can filter the tenant list by using the fields above the list. You can also filter the list by tag by using the tag control.

To filter the tenant list by using the filter fields:

1.In the field above the Name column, select the property you want to filter by.

2.In the next field, type the text string you want to use as a filter. This string can be up to 64 characters long, can contain any valid UTF-8 characters except commas (,), and is not case sensitive. White space is allowed.

3.Click on the find control ( FindControl.png ).

To redisplay the entire list of tenants after filtering it, click on the clear filter control ( ClearFilterControl.png ).

To filter the tenant list by tag using the tag control:

1.Click on the tag control ( TagControl.png ) on the right above the tenant list.

The Tags window opens. This window lists all the tags currently associated with the existing tenants. For each tag, the window shows the number of associated tenants.

2.Click on the tenant-count icon ( TenantCountIcon.png ) for the tag you want.

The tenant list shows only the tenants that have the selected tag, and the fields above the Name column show the filter criteria.

About the tenant Overview panel


The tenant Overview panel shows the current status of any given tenant. To display this panel for a tenant:

1.In the top-level menu of the System Management Console, click on Tenants.

2.In the list of tenants, click on the name of the tenant that you want to examine.

To return to the tenant Overview panel from the tenant Settings panel, click on Overview in the row of tabs below the tenant name.

RoleWebHelp.png

Roles: To view the tenant Overview panel, you need the monitor or administrator role.

Tenant URL

The top of the tenant Overview panel shows the URL for access to the Tenant Management Console for the tenant. The URL has this format:

https://tenant-url-name.hcp-domain-name:8000

In this format, hcp-domain-name is the name of the domain associated with the management network for the tenant. For information on networks, see About virtual networking with HCP.

For example, the URL for access to the Tenant Management Console for the tenant named Finance in the HCP system named hcp‑ma.example.com is:

https://finance.hcp‑ma.example.com:8000

Clicking on a tenant URL opens either the Overview page or the login page for the Tenant Management Console for that tenant:

If a tenant is configured to allow system-level users to manage it, clicking on the URL for that tenant opens its Tenant Management Console Overview page. For an HCP tenant, the Overview page opens only if at least one of your client IP addresses is allowed access to the Tenant Management Console for the tenant.

If the tenant is not configured to allow system-level users to manage it, clicking on the URL for that tenant opens its Tenant Management Console login page.

You can also use the access control ( TenantAccessControl.png ) for a tenant to click through to the Tenant Management Console. For more information on this access control, see Accessing the Tenant Management Console for a tenant.

For information on using a system-level user account to directly access, manage, monitor, and search tenants, see Tenant-level administration.

Tenant description

The tenant Overview panel shows the tenant description, if any, below the tenant URL. This is optional text that you can specify when creating or modifying the tenant.

Features Enabled section

The Features Enabled section of the tenant Overview panel lists the features that are enabled for the tenant. Possibilities are:

Replication — The tenant is eligible for replication. For information on replication, see Replicating Tenants and Namespaces.

Retention Mode Selection:

oAn HCP tenant administrator can create namespaces in either enterprise or compliance mode. Additionally, a tenant administrator can change the retention mode of a namespace from enterprise to compliance.

Without this feature, tenant administrators can create namespaces only in enterprise mode and cannot subsequently change the retention mode.

oThe default tenant administrator can change the retention mode of the default namespace from enterprise mode to compliance mode (if the namespace was originally in enterprise mode).

For information on the enterprise and compliance retention modes, see Regulatory compliance.

Search — Tenant administrators can enable and disable search in the namespaces that the tenant owns.

For an introduction to search, see HCP Search Console. For more information on the supported search facilities, see Configuring search.

Service Plan Selection — Tenant administrators can associate service plans with the namespaces that the tenant owns.

If the tenant does not have this feature, the HCP system administrator chooses the service plan for the tenant, and that service plan applies to all namespaces owned by that tenant.

For information on service plans, see Working with service plans.

Versioning — Tenant administrators can enable and disable versioning in the namespaces that the tenant owns. This feature is available only for HCP tenants.

For information on versioning, see Managing a Tenant and Its Namespaces and Using a Namespace.

Namespaces section

For HCP tenants only, the Namespaces section of the tenant Overview panel shows:

Quota — The number of namespaces that HCP reserves for the tenant out of the total number of namespaces that the system can have. This is also the maximum number of namespaces that the tenant can own at any given time. If the tenant doesn’t have a namespace quota, this field displays No Quota.

Used — The number of namespaces the tenant currently owns.

Available — If the tenant has a quota, this is the number of additional namespaces that the tenant can own. If the tenant has no quota, this is the number of unallocated namespaces out of the total number of namespaces the system can have, minus the number of existing namespaces owned by tenants that don’t have quotas.

When calculating the number of available namespaces for a tenant with no quota, HCP considers only locally created namespaces and not namespaces that were replicated to the system from another system.

Objects section

The Objects section of the tenant Overview panel shows:

Ingested — The total number of objects currently stored in all the tenant's namespaces. Each version of an object counts as a separate object. However, the object count does not include object versions that are delete markers.

Multipart objects are each counted as a single object. Objects that are in the process of being created by a multipart upload are not included in the object count.

Indexed — The total number of indexed objects currently stored in all the tenant's namespaces. This item appears only if the tenant has the search feature and a search facility is currently selected for use with the Search Console. If the HDDS search facility is in use, that facility must also be configured to show statistics.

Erasure coded — The total number of erasure-coded objects in all the tenant's namespaces. An object is counted as erasure coded if a chunk for it is stored on the current system.

Each multipart object counts as one object even though the parts of a multipart object are erasure coded independently of each other.

Storage section

For HCP tenants only, the Overview panel includes a Storage section. This section shows:

Quota — The total amount of storage available to the tenant for allocation to its namespaces.

Used — The total amount of storage currently used by all the tenant's namespaces to store object data, system and custom metadata, and any redundant data required to satisfy data protection level and metadata protection level settings in service plans.

Used storage includes storage occupied by the parts of in-progress multipart uploads that have already been written to the repository. Used storage does not include replaced parts of multipart uploads, parts uploaded for aborted multipart uploads, or unused parts of completed multipart uploads. For information on multipart uploads, see Working with multipart uploads.

NoteWebHelp.png

Note: The size of the data for an object created by a completed multipart upload may be slightly less than the total size of the parts before the multipart upload was completed.

Available — The amount of unused storage still available to the tenant.
