The cloud hub

In the cloud hub, you can create, share, and interact with apps. You can also interact with other content such as links and charts.

The cloud hub is divided into four sections:

  • Home
  • Explore
  • Your profile
  • Settings


When you log into the cloud hub, you start in Home. The first time you log into the cloud hub, Home will have a welcome message containing resources for getting started. If you close this message, you can choose to show it again in Settings.

What you see in Home depends on your license. If you have a professional license, Home displays content you created, charts you have added to the hub, and your favorite apps. If you have an analyzer license, Home displays recently added apps, charts you have added to the hub, and your favorite apps.

Spaces are areas in the cloud hub where apps are stored. Spaces can be personal, shared, or managed.

All users have a personal space where apps they create are stored by default. Personal spaces are private. You can share your personal apps by moving them to a shared space.

Users with a professional license can create shared spaces. Shared spaces are private when first created. Shared spaces allow collaborative development of apps. Spaces also limit access to apps in the space. Access to apps in the space is granted by adding members to the space.

Managed spaces can be created by tenant administrators. Managed spaces are used to provide strictly controlled access to apps that might have sensitive data. Apps are developed in other spaces and then published to the managed space.

You can select spaces to which you have access to from the drop-down in Explore. You can also create new spaces from the spaces drop-down.
