Understanding Tenant Admin and User Roles

Anaplan allows for multiple tenants (also known as Customer) across the enterprise to set up new environments quickly and efficiently. Below is a high-level visualization of the different roles and processes that need to take place in order for your workspace to be successful.  

01: Workspace Creation

  • Anaplan Support creates your workspace(s) in tenant (Customer)

02: First User Creation 

  • Anaplan Support adds initial User(s) from the Customer, and grants Workspace Admin
  • Customers: Let your Customer Success Business Partner know who the Tenant Admin should be (this role is similar to a product or system admin). Anaplan Support will then assign the role

04: WSA Build Models 

  • Workspace Admins (or Model Building WSAs) build Models within the Workspaces they have access to and connect data between multiple Workspaces
  • Non-Admin Users can run imports between Workspaces or Models within the same Workspace if they have the correct access rights in both Models/Workspaces.

05: TA Configures & Manages Workspace

  • Grant “Page Builder” role to other Users to build UX Apps and Pages
  • Manage users and model categories across all of the workspaces in your organization.
    • Get a quick overview of all the Users, Models, and Workspaces in the organization. For any given user, you can look up the list of models and workspaces that user has access to.
  • Look up a User and remove (or reinstate) their access to Anaplan. This is useful when an employee or contractor leaves (or rejoins) your organization.
  • Import/configure other Tenant-level features (e.g. Importing a CA Certificate for Certificate Based Integration)
  • New features coming include self-service reports on Workspace usage and users on UX
