Organization Modeling in Orchestrator

Orchestrator provides multiple features that can be used in modeling your deployment to provide easy and efficient administration while also ensuring proper asset isolation and access control across your organization, regardless of size or structure.

A single Orchestrator instance can be split into multiple Tenants, with each tenant being entirely isolated from any others. No automations, resources, or users are shared or accessible across different tenants.

Each tenant in your organization can be further subdivided and organized into Folders. You can create as many folders as needed to accomplish your desired structure. Each type of folder has various features and capabilities, enabling you to use the appropriate type for managing the administration and sharing of automations across your organization.

Tenants

Tenants are designed for the purpose of complete isolation of all Orchestrator entities (i.e., Robots, Assets, Queues, etc.) between these segregated instances of your deployment, all without having to maintain multiple Orchestrators. Some examples of separating your Orchestrator into tenants:

  • A tenant for each regional or international office of your enterprise, as users from each region have automations specific for the applicable laws and procedures of that region (e.g., HR processes in the USA vs. Europe or Japan).
  • Maintaining multiple development and testing environments.
  • Isolating sensitive data, such as payroll processes or confidential projects.

Tenants are thus best used in situations where you want all users, resources, and settings of your automation solutions to be managed independently by designated tenant administrators.

Note: Keep in mind that a Robot can only be connected to a single tenant at any given time.

Folders

Orchestrator folders provide advanced features such as automatic robot management, hierarchical structures, and fine-grained role assignment for users.

Their guiding purpose is to simplify large deployments by enabling the sharing of automations across various departments, integration with your existing AD groups, and expanded control over user permissions and robot creation.

For example, you can create a separate folder for your Finance and HR departments, adding those respective groups from your company Active Directory to their corresponding folder, while also allowing your HR users to have access to the Expense Report automations contained in the Finance folder rather than having to recreate for each separate user or group in your enterprise.
