tenant administrator (person)

A person who is assigned as a Tenant Administrator beyond the Tenant Administrator setting for the AgilePoint NX Portal is required only for multi-tenant installations. Each tenant can have a separate Tenant Administrator who is the primary custodian of tenant-specific maintenance tasks. This user is involved during tenant setup, managing the tenant on daily basis, assigning others permission to use the tenant, monitoring alerts for the tenant, and so on.

This function is usually fulfilled by someone from IT team who manages other servers in your environment. Once the installation is complete, the Tenant Administrator is required part-time. Tenant Administration tasks typically do not require a full-time Administrator.
