Hi All

I have a query about tenants and it's current functionality in the Adapt Authoring Tool.

I work in an institute in which there are different faculties’ e.g Health, engineering etc., but rather than setup separate servers I want to use the tenant feature to assign certain users to certain groups (tenants) where they can see each other’s courses.

So if a user is in Engineering, I don’t want them to see a course for Health.

I have tried to create a new tenant (Via mongodb compass), and assigned several users to said tenant, but it is almost like the functionality of the feature is not ‘activated’, or whether my interpretation of this feature is mistaken.


Would someone be able to clarify the tenant feature, what it does, does it currently work etc?

Hi Michael,

the tenant feature is not currently part of the official open source release yet. There is a branch which support tenant management, but it is not 100% feature complete, and by its nature requires additional scrutiny with regard to security.  That said, it can be made to work in the right circumstances with a little massaging.

It is on the road map to add to the os tool in a few releases time.

Hi sorry to bring up this old post, but can anyone confirm the current status of tenants?
