APIs for Orgs

This release introduces new REST API v1 endpoints and object properties to support Org operations on a multi-tenant cluster.

Org API endpoints

For multi-tenant clusters with Orgs, ThoughtSpot provides new endpoints to allow CRUD operations for Org objects.

Session API endpoints

If the Orgs feature is enabled and Orgs are created on your cluster, the cluster administrators can use the /tspublic/v1/session/orgs to Switch between Orgs.

For deployments with the trusted authentication framework, you can use the /tspublic/v1/session/auth/token API endpoint lets you create a user just-in-time and dynamically assign Orgs, groups, and privileges to that user.

Mapping Orgs to users and groups

On multi-tenant clusters with Orgs, the user and group API endpoints allow assigning users and groups to an Org object. For more information, refer to the following articles:

Version 8.9.0.cl, November 2022πŸ”—

Starting from 8.9.0.cl, the /tspublic/v1/session/auth/token endpoint includes the autocreate and groups properties to allow administrators to create a user just-in-time and assign groups and privileges to the user when requesting an authentication token from ThoughtSpot.

TML API

In 8.9.0.cl, ThoughtSpot will rebrand the object name pinboard to liveboard in the TML. The TML objects retrieved from ThoughtSpot via /tspublic/v1/metadata/tml/export API endpoint will show the object name as liveboard in the API response.

User API

The POST /tspublic/v1/user/ and PUT /tspublic/v1/user/{userid} API endpoints allow you set the triggeredbyadmin flag to indicate if the user creation or update request is initiated by the ThoughtSpot admin or an external application.
