Admin Console Overview

The admin console is the main graphical interface for administrators managing an instance of Pyramid. It is accessible to any Pro user designated as either an Enterprise or Domain admin.

This section of online help is focused on administrative console functionality.

Admin Console Sections

The admin console is made of multiple sections, with most sections containing pages to control the way the application works.

  • Admin Hub - this section provides an overview of the system's performance with high-level diagnostic data.
  • Licensing - this page provides an overview to the licensing details of the instance with tools for changing license keys.
  • Access - this section contains all the tools for managing users and user defaults, roles, tenants, profiles, and provisioning.
  • Security - this section contains settings associated with authentication, certificates, network and server security, and client security.
  • Data - this section contains all the tools for managing data sources, data models, data security, and connectivity.
  • Content - this section contains tools for managing items used in the content frameworks.
  • Services - this section contains the tools needed to manage the specific Pyramid services and networking options of the cluster.
  • Schedules - this section provides access to all the various scheduled items in the system as well as user provisioning.
  • Logs - this section contains access to all the generated logs from the system.
  • Mobile - this section contains the settings and management tools for mobile access to the system.
  • Design - this section contains the tools for managing the graphic themes definitions and custom fonts.
  • Geospatial - this section contains the tools for managing the geospatial database and custom maps.
  • AI and DSML - this section contains the tools for managing the AI servers, Natural Language Querying, and the virtual environments for R and Python.

Enterprise vs Domain Admins

Each type of admin has different rights and access to the admin console.

  • Enterprise admins have access to all content in the admin console, without exception - including full visibility to all tenant information - regardless of which tenant they are attached to.
  • Domain admins (who are specifically "tenant" administrators) have less access to the content in the admin console - with a focus on managing the needs for a single tenant only. Apart from NOT seeing system wide pages and functions, they will also only see and have functional access to the relevant tenant on any given page that is relevant.

Administering Content

Managing and administering content is one of the key tasks for administrators. Rather than present a separate interface for administrative content tools, all admin functionality for content is embedded directly into the main content management system (CMS) used by all users.

Based on administrative rights, the CMS includes tools that let you:

  • Control rights on folders and content items directly from within the CMS (read, write, and manage).
  • Manage the private folders and content of any user in the admin's domain / tenancy.
    • Enterprise admins can see and manage content for all tenants in the system.
    • Domain admins can only see and manage content for their own tenant in the system.
  • Analyze content structures to ensure they are correct compared to their associated data models.
  • Manage content versions.
  • Manage the data sources associated with content items (with tools for changing them).
  • Migrate content between instances of Pyramid. This functionality is available for Enterprise admins only.
  • View content and data lineage flows throughout the CMS to better see and understand the inter-connectivity of elements.


The Pyramid REST API framework contains numerous functionalities for the programmatic administration of Pyramid - perfect for scenarios where highly repetitive tasks need to be automated or where there is a need for integration into other administrative and enterprise application frameworks.
