Administration Improvements:

New: Tenant policies have been added under the “Tenants” menu item. This feature is available for Dedicated or Private Edition only, i.e. for users with access to the management tenant.

  • The “Tenant policies” are groups of settings that control features and configuration of tenants. Policies are created by using defined settings and then the settings are applied to tenants.


  • To edit a policy, either click on the desired policy or hover over the policy and then click on the desired action in the cogwheel menu.


Configuration settings can now be changed without any downtime. Please note that this feature is only available for “Dedicated Edition or Private Edition users”.
