Creating workspaces

This guide will explain how to create workspaces in Adverity.


A workspace is where you collect, enrich, and work with your data. You can configure Adverity settings for your workspace. Your organization may also use workspaces to manage access rights. Workspaces are created in a tree structure, where child workspaces may inherit some settings and permissions from the parent workspace.

Creating a workspace


Before you complete the procedure in this guide, perform all of the following actions:

  • Ensure your user account is assigned to the groups Administrator and Creator. For more information, see Assigning user permissions.


To create a workspace in Adverity, follow these steps:

  1. Select the workspace you work with in Adverity and then, in the platform navigation menu, click Administration.

  2. In the secondary menu, click Create Workspace.

  3. In Name, enter the name of workspace to be created.

  4. In Parent, select the workspace that will be the parent of the workspace you are about to create. User rights and customizations (such as logos and themes) are inherited from parent workspaces.

  5. (Optional) In Default destination, select the default destination into which collected data extracts will be loaded. The list of available destinations is inherited from the parent workspace.

  6. (Optional) Populate the additional optional fields as you see fit. For more information on these optional fields, see Advanced workspace settings in Adverity.

  1. Click Next.

  1. In Storage, select the storage where collected data extracts are stored. The list of available storage options is inherited from the parent workspace. For more information on how to set up new storage for the workspace, see Setting up storage for data extracts.

As a result, you have created a workspace in Adverity which you can use to create datastreams and collect data extracts. To configure additional settings for the workspace in Adverity, see Advanced workspace settings in Adverity.
