What is Tenant Management Service (TMS)?
Tenant Management Service (TMS) in a Multi-Tenant Environment
In a multi-tenant setup, Tenant Management Service (TMS) is a dedicated microservice responsible for efficiently managing the tenants within the system. Tenant Management involves overseeing various aspects related to individual tenants in a platform.
The key responsibilities of the Tenant Management Service (TMS) include:
Creating Tenants: TMS is responsible for creating new tenant accounts within the system. It sets up the necessary infrastructure and resources for each tenant, ensuring their isolation and independence.
Retrieving Tenant Information: TMS provides functionality to query and access specific data, settings, and attributes associated with existing tenants. This allows the system to retrieve tenant-related information whenever needed.
Validating Tenants: TMS ensures that only valid and authorized tenants can access the system. It performs checks to verify if a tenant is registered and has the required permissions to use the platform.
Tracardi Integration: In a multi-tenant environment, where multiple tenants interact with the system, TMS plays a pivotal role. It validates tenant credentials, ensures they are registered, and handles operations such as creating or deleting a tenant.
To create a new tenant in Tracardi's multi-tenant setup, developers use the Tenant Management Service (TMS) API. The process involves setting up the TMS, making an API call to create a new tenant, and providing essential information to set up the tenant. The API returns a generated API key, which serves as the authentication token for accessing the Tracardi API on behalf of the tenant. Additionally, TMS facilitates the creation of a tenant domain, installation token, and other essential components for the tenant.
