Add an Operating Company (OpCo)

 Note

This topic is applicable to the CSO on-premises version.

An operating company (OpCo) is a managed service provider that can add and manage its own tenants and provide services to those tenants. Only users with the SP Administrator role or equivalent permissions can add OpCos. For more information on OpCos, see Operating Companies Overview in the CSO Administration Portal User Guide (available on the CSO Documentation page).

To add an OpCo:

  1. Select Tenants > Operating Companies.

    The Operating Companies (OpCo) page appears.

  2. Click the Add icon (+).

    The Create Operating Company (OpCo) page appears.

  3. Complete the configuration according to the guidelines provided in Table 1.Note

    Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory.

  4. Click OK.

    CSO triggers a job to add an OpCo and returns you to the Operating Companies (OpCo) page. A confirmation message with a link to the triggered job appears on the top of the page. When the job finishes, a confirmation message appears along with a link to the job. (You can click the job link to view the job details or go to the Jobs page (Resources > Jobs) and view the job details.)

    The new operating company is then displayed on the Operating Companies (OpCo) page.
