You perform these activities in the HCP Tenant Management Console. For information on using this Console, see Tenant Management Console.
Managing user and group accounts
HCP user and group accounts determine whether you can log into the HCP Tenant Management Console or Search Console and which operations you can perform in namespaces. For the Tenant Management Console, they also determine which actions you’re allowed to perform after logging in.
You use the Tenant Management Console to create, modify, and delete user and group accounts. For each HCP user account, you specify whether it’s authenticated locally or by RADIUS.
You also use the Tenant Management Console to configure login settings for the Console as a whole.
Maintaining the tenant
As a tenant administrator, you are responsible for configuring:
•Tenant contact information
•The tenant description
•The tenant permission mask
•System-level administrative access to the tenant
•Access to the Tenant Management Console
•Access to HCP through the management API
•Access to the Search Console for the tenant
For information on these activities, see Configuring the tenant.
Creating and maintaining namespaces
As a tenant administrator, you are responsible for creating and maintaining namespaces. After creating a namespace, you can change most of its properties. You are also responsible for managing search and indexing for the namespace.
In addition to creating and modifying namespaces, you can delete them, but only if they don’t contain any objects.
For information on:
•Creating namespaces, see Creating a namespace
•Changing namespace properties, see Configuring a namespace and Selecting or deselecting namespaces for replication
•Managing search and indexing, see Managing search and indexing for an individual namespace
•Deleting namespaces, see Deleting a namespace
Note: Users with the allow namespace management property can use the HCP management and S3 compatible APIs to create, view and change the versioning status of, and delete namespaces.
Monitoring the tenant and namespaces
HCP is a self-monitoring, self-healing system that automatically alerts you to any issues you may need to address (such as a namespace running low on space). The Tenant Management Console enables you to review tenant and namespace activity and take action to address certain issues. Using the Console, you can view:
•Statistics and graphs showing namespace usage. For more information on this, see:
•Messages about tenant and namespace events, such as configuration changes and searches performed from the Search Console. For information on this, see:
•Messages about security events (that is, attempts to log into the Tenant Management Console with an invalid username). For information on this, see Viewing the tenant security log.
•Messages about compliance events (that is, retention class activity and privileged delete operations). For information on this, see:
•Reports of irreparable objects. For information on this, see Working with irreparable objects.
•Alerts warning you of conditions that may need your attention. For information on this, see:
•The progress of replication activity. For information on this, see Monitoring and managing replication.
You can also have HCP send tenant and namespace log messages to syslog servers, SNMP managers, and specified email addresses. For information on this see:
Additionally, you can generate chargeback reports that can be used as input to billing applications. For information on this, see Generating chargeback reports.
Managing namespace access
•Setting minimum data access permissions for authenticated and unauthenticated users (see Changing minimum data access permissions)
•Configuring the namespace access protocols for client access to each namespace (see Configuring namespace access protocols)
•Optionally, setting the IP addresses from which access to the Search Console is allowed or denied (see Controlling access to the Search Console)
•Optionally, downloading HCP Data Migrator for installation on client computers (see Downloading HCP Data Migrator)
Performing compliance activities
•Create, modify, and delete retention classes (see Working with retention classes)
•Perform privileged delete operations (see Using privileged delete)
