Jet Stream User Management Activities

This document describes the process of creating a Jet Stream user and assigning that user to a data container. It also provides an overview of the Jet Stream User Details page.

Creating a Jet Stream User

Follow the same process when creating a new user or modifying an existing Delphix user. Jet Stream users do not have access to the existing admin UI, and they can only access the Jet Stream Data Container page for containers they own.
  1. From the Admin App, select Manage.
  2. Select Users.

    User Manager

  3. Click Add User.
    1. To make an existing user a Jet Stream user, select the user from the list.
  4. Enter the appropriate information.
  5. Select the JS-Only User checkbox.

    User Creation

  6. Press Save.

The user is now a Jet Stream user! This means that the user can now login to the Jet Stream user interface, and you can make the user the owner of a data container. 


  • Jet Stream users will only be able to access the Jet Stream Data Management page. They will not be able to access the other portions of the Jet Stream interface, nor the Admin App.
  • A Delphix admin user cannot be made a JS-Only User. However, admins can still use Jet Stream and own a data container. Admins are also able to manage all data containers.
  • A user who owns one or more data containers cannot be deleted.
    • For the list of data containers that a given user owns, see Jet Stream User Details.
  • You cannot revoke a user's JS-Only role if they own any data containers.
    • For the list of data containers that a given user owns, see Jet Stream User Details.

Changing Default Locale

While adding a new Jet Stream user, an Admin can change the user's default locale:
  1. In the Add New User window, select the Locale drop-down menu.
  2. Select the user's new default locale.

Assigning a Jet Stream User to a Data Container

This section describes how to assign a Jet Stream user (created in the previous section) to a data container. Making a Jet Stream user the owner of a data container allows them to perform operations such as Refresh on that data container. Jet Stream users cannot see or manipulate data containers that they do not own. You can either assign a user when creating a new data container, or modify the owner of an existing data container.

Case 1: Assigning a user to a new Data Container

  1. Select the Management Overview page.
  2. Select a template from which you want to create the data container. This will take you to the Data Template page.
  3. Click Add Container in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
  4. Enter information about the data container, such as the Name and Description (optional).
  5. Select the Owners for the data container from the search box. It is acceptable to have multiple Owners per each data container. 
  6. Select the VDBs to use for this container's data sources and Save.

Case 2: Changing the owner of an existing Data Container

  1. On the Management Overview page, select the data template from which the data container was provisioned.
  2. Click the Containers tile in the left-hand panel.
  3. Click the Edit icon next to the name of the data container's owner.

    Data container editing

  4. Select the desired ownerfrom the drop-down list.
    1. To remove the current owner, select <None> from the list.
  5. When you are finished editing, click the checkmark to the right.

The user you selected is now the owner of the data container and can perform operations on that data container. 

A data container can only have a single owner at a time.

User Details Page

This section provides an overview of the Jet Stream User Details page. This page displays graphs related to the user's Jet Stream activity, as well as a list of all of the data containers that the user owns.
  1. On the Management Overview page, click the Users tab.

    Management Overview

  2. Select the name of the desired user to go to their User Details page.
  3. The Operation Counts By Week graph shows the aggregate of all Jet Stream operations performed by this user on all of their containers. The Container Age Distribution graph shows the average time since a data operation was performed on all of the user's containers. Each container that the user owns will appear in the Containers section. The user details page looks like this:
