About the Admin portal

Use the Admin portal for administrative operations, including:

  • Create new organizations and applications.
  • View information about the current organization, such as its applications, administrators, and credentials.
  • Display information about an application, such as its users, groups, collections, and roles.
  • Create and modify roles to manage access to your data.
  • View and modify your data, with full support for users, groups, and custom entities and collections.
  • Generate and access credentials for API access.

Navigating the Admin portal

The Admin portal interface displays a variety of pages that display information and enable you to perform management actions. These include:

  • Account home
  • Application dashboard
  • Users
  • Groups
  • Roles
  • Activities
  • Collections
  • Analytics
  • Properties
  • Shell

You can display any of these pages by clicking its respective item in the left sidebar menu of the Admin portal.

Account Home

When you log in to the Admin portal, you are presented with a home page for managing the applications and data for your organization. The home page displays:

  • Applications associated with the currently selected organization
  • Administrators that are part of that organization
  • API credentials for the organization
  • Activities performed recently by administrators
  • A menu for building, organizing, and managing application content

Application dashboard

The Application Dashboard shows a variety of statistical data for the selected application. You can see the activity level, the total number of entities, and other vital statistics for monitoring application health as well as quota limits.


The Users page lists the user entities created in the current application. You can add or delete users. You can also edit various properties of a user entity such as the user's name or address.


The Groups page lists the groups created in the current application. You can add or delete groups. You can also edit some properties of a group such as the group's display name.


The Roles page lists the roles defined for the current application. You can add or delete roles. You can also specify and update the permissions for a role.


The Activities page lists the activities posted in an application. You can view when the activity was posted, who posted the activity, and the content of the activity. You can also search for activities by content or actor.


The Collections page lists the collections created in the current application. You can also search for, add, update, or deleted collections.


Use this page to collect and analyze Usergrid usage data such as the number of times a particular collection has been accessed over a period of time. You can specify parameters for data collection, including what data points you'd like to collect, over what time period, and at what resolution. When you click the Generate button, the results are displayed in tabular form and graphically in the lower portion of the page.


The Properties page lists the credentials (Client ID and Client Secret) for the current application. You can regenerate credentials for the application from this page.


The Shell page gives you a simple way to get started using the Usergrid API. It provides a command-line environment within your web browser for trying out Usergrid API calls interactively.

Displaying API calls as cURL commands

You can display the equivalent cURL syntax for each API call that is made through the Admin portal. The calls are displayed in the console area of any of the following browsers: Chrome, Internet Explorer (in the debugger), Firefox (in Firebug), and Safari. For details, see Displaying Usergrid API calls as Curl commands:
