Example Scenario

Suppose the Root User is Company ABC which provides product XYZ as a SaaS offering to its various customers. Here, an ABC customer is someone who has an XYZ account. A tenant is any customer of Company ABC who has its users (who uses XYZ).

In this scenario, the customers are added as tenants. That is, every customer is added as a tenant by the Root User (Company ABC), and is also managed by the Root User. If the tenant wants to manage its users, they can add a user(s) as Tenant Administrators.

Password Management

Creating a New Password

Provider or admin created a password for the users. Users can reset the password later. A valid password has following characteristics:

  • Password length: 6–40 characters

  • Allowed characters: A–Z, a–z, 0–9, !, @, #, %, *

Resetting the Password

  • Super Admin: Super Admin can reset the password In Harmony Controller.

  • Other users: Users can reset the password in Harmony Controller by selecting the Forgot password option. Provider admin can then change the password directly or provide a link to users to update the password.
