Rooms User Guide

A Tehama Room provides an isolated set of tools and services, so you can collaborate securely. Organizations work together using a shared Room with access governed by policies. A Room is connected to a network, either a private or a public network (e.g. resources in the cloud) in which remote people work. All work performed in the connected network through the Room is audited.


What is a Room?

A Room is a container with a set of tools and services running within it.

Tools and services in a Tehama Room:

  • Firewall Rules, a set of rules that constrain access to the 'connected network'.
    (See the description of the 'connected network' below.)


  • Secrets Vault, secure storage of access credentials for assets in the connected network.

  • File Vault, a secure transfer mechanism for files between the users local environment and the connected network.

  • App Vault, a way to securely transfer application installation files to the Room's desktops.

  • Desktops, both Windows and Linux Virtual Machines (VMs), used by Room members to interact with the connected network. Rooms contain Desktop templates from which Desktop instances are generated. A Desktop template contains the description of the Desktop configuration and the users assigned to it - those Room members who can connect to the template's generated Desktop instances. There can be as many as 500 Desktop instances in a Room. Each Desktop instance runs a 'Tehama Desktop Agent' application (AKA Workspace Agent) which provides access to tools/services in the Room. A Room member connects (logs in) to a Desktop instance to run a Desktop session. There can be a maximum of 75 concurrent Desktop sessions per Room when the Recordings Room feature is enabled and up to 200 concurrent Desktop sessions when the Recordings Room feature is disabled. (See the Desktop Session Auditing/Recordings User Guide for more details.)

  • Audit, a set of audit tools including live Desktop session viewing, Desktop session recording, an activity stream of events occurring in the Room and reports.

The firewall rules, secrets vault, the file vault and the audit capabilities, are managed through the Tehama Web UI and accessible from the Tehama Desktop Agent in the Desktops. The app vault is managed through the Tehama Web UI and the files it contains are accessible from mapped drives in the Desktops.

Each Room is owned by a Tehama organization, the 'owner organization', and is connected to the network of a Tehama organization, the 'connected organization'. (These can be the same organization.) Other organizations can be invited to use the Room as well. These are known as 'user organizations'.

A Room has Desktops (as described in the list of Tools and Services above), used to interact with the connected network through Desktop sessions. The Room's owner organization manages the creation and lifecycle of Desktops in the Room, and controls the number of Desktop instances.

A Room has members. Members are users from the Tehama organizations in the Room. Members must comply with the access policy set for their organization in the Room. Only members in a Room can be assigned to Desktop templates in the Room. Typically, a Desktop instance is created from a template for each member that is assigned to it. Members access their Desktop instances through the Tehama Web UI. The Room's connected organization controls which members can be added to the Room, while the Room's owner organization is in charge of assigning/removing members to/from Desktop templates.

Note: The owner organization must, when constructing and assigning members to Desktop templates in the Room, take into consideration the number of concurrent Desktop sessions they expect to have running. While a Room can contain as many as 500 Desktop instances and unlimited members, to ensure optimum performance the maximum number of concurrent Desktop sessions per Room is limited to 75 when the Recordings Room feature is enabled and limited to 200 concurrent Desktop sessions when the Recordings Room feature is disabled. (See the Desktop Session Auditing/Recordings User Guide for more details.) If a higher number of concurrent sessions is expected, multiple Rooms may be required. Room owner organizations are encouraged to contact Tehama Support if they would like assistance in optimizing their Room environment for performance and availability, taking your auditing/recording needs into consideration.

A Room is connected to a network, either a private network or a public network (e.g. resources in the cloud) that is controlled by the Room's 'connected organization'. This is referred to as the 'connected network'. The only way the tools and services in the Room can access the connected network is through the connection the Room provides, isolating access to the connected network's access to Room members.

Since it is the confidentiality of their network and data that is at stake, the connected organization in the Room manages the network settings for the Room in addition to the Room membership.

The character of the 'connected network' depends on the 'Network Access' setting chosen by the Room's 'connected to' organization. It can be set to either 'Internet Only' or 'Tehama Gateway'.

  • When set to 'Internet Only', the 'connected network' is the set of applications and services in the cloud that the Room's firewall settings allow access to.

  • When set to 'Tehama Gateway', the 'connected network' is the organization's private network where a Tehama Gateway must be installed (as well as desired resources in the cloud), constrained by the Room's firewall settings. (See the Tehama Gateway User Guide for more information on Tehama Gateways.)

The following image shows how the architecture achieves the isolation that Rooms provide. It shows the scenario where a service consumer (customer) has two Rooms in Tehama connected to their network where:

  • Whiteroom X is a Tehama Room with 'Network Access' set to 'Tehama Gateway' and with the 'Multiple Gateways' option disabled.
  • Whiteroom Y is a Tehama Room with 'Network Access' set to 'Internet Only'.

More information on the Room concept is available in the 'Room' section of the Introduction.

Roles and responsibilities in a Room

Each organization in a Room has one of the following roles:

  • owner+connected: The organization created the Room (i.e.: they are paying for it) and connected it (i.e.: they configured the network access for the Room to connect to their private (or public) network).
  • user-only: The organization has been added (invited to join) to a Room and has no particular responsibilities in the Room.
  • user+owner: The organization created and is paying for the Room but the Room is connected to by another organization.
  • connected-only: The organization connected to the Room that another organization is paying for.

Room management responsibilities are divided as follows:

⦿ In your role as the Admin user or an Org Manager or a Room Manager (who is a member of the Room) of the Room's connected organization (owner+connected or connected-only), it is your responsibility to:

  • configure and monitor the connection to the connected network.
  • keep the Tehama Gateway in the Room up-to-date (if applicable).
  • set up firewall rules.
  • add/remove secrets.
  • grant membership to the Room to users from your own and other organizations.
  • monitor and audit the actions users perform when accessing and using resources on the connected network. (See note below.) Actions you can audit include user sessions, users' use of access credentials, the transfer of files in and out of your systems, and much more.

⦿ In your role as the Admin user or an Org Manager or a Room Manager (who is a member of the Room) of the Room's owner organization (owner+connected or user+owner), it is your responsibility to:

  • add and approve requests for Desktop templates for Room members.
  • enable/disable the Multiple Gateways option for the Room (if applicable).
  • monitor and audit Room activity.

In addition ...

⦿ In your role as the Admin or an Org Manager or a Room Manager (who is a member of the Room) of an organization in the Room that DOES NOT own the Room (connected-only or user-only), you can:

  • request Desktop templates for Room members.

⦿ In your role as the Admin or an Org Manager or a Room Manager (who is a member of the Room) of an organization in the Room that IS NOT the organization that is connected to the Room (user+owner or user-only), you can:

  • request/propose users from your organization for membership in the Room.

⦿ In your role as a Staff member of an organization in the Room that has been approved as a member of the Room, you can:

  • request Desktop templates for Room members.
  • be assigned to Desktop templates in the Room.
  • connect to and work in Desktops in the Room - Desktops generated from the Desktop templates that you have been assigned to.

All of the above responsibilities are handled through the Tehama Web UI.

The Roles User Guide provides an overview of the roles and responsibilities that organizations can have in a Room. See the section 'Roles and their permissions vis-a-vis Room management' in the guide.


Typical Room workflow

First a Room has to be created.

Once a Room has been created, it must be set up properly. Between them, the Admin users and Org Managers and Room Managers (who are members of the Room) of a Room's connected organization and its owner organization will:

After that, as a member of a Room, you can start to work as follows:

Through the Desktop, you have access to the Room's connected network. This is where you perform your tasks on the connected network.

To help you in your work, you can:

  • transfer files between your local environment and the connected network using the Room's file vault.
    (See the File Vault User Guide.)

    • use the Tehama Web UI to upload files from and download files to your local environment.
    • use the Tehama Desktop Agent (Workspace Agent) to upload files from and download files to your Desktop (and from there to the connected network).

  • use the secrets from the Room's secrets vault to access assets in the connected network.
    (See the Secrets Vault User Guide.)

    • access the secrets in the secrets vault (from either the Tehama Web UI or the Tehama Desktop/Workspace Agent) to generate temporary credentials that you can use to gain access to password protected assets/resources in the Room's connected network.

View list of Rooms

All roles in all organizations can access the list of Rooms. The Admin user and Org Managers in an organization will see all Rooms the organization has a stake in. Room Managers and Staff members will only see those Rooms of which they are a member.

View the list of Rooms you have access to as follows:

  1. Log in to the Tehama Web UI.
  2. Click on the ROOMS tab.

Rooms list

An organization's Admin user and its Org Managers will see all the Rooms the organization has a stake in - that is all the Rooms they own, are connected to or otherwise use.

An organization's Room Managers and Staff members will see all the Rooms that they are a member of.

The list displays the following information for each Room:

  • Room: the name of the Room
  • Members: the number of members in the Room
  • Desktops: the number of Desktops in the Room
  • In Use: the number of Desktops in the Room that are currently in use
  • Policy: the policy that members of their organization in the Room must comply with
  • Status: the status of the Room (Connected, Disconnected, Pending, Deactivated or Archived)

The graph at the top right of the list shows the TCU usage for the Rooms. (See the TCU Usage reports under REPORTS for more information on TCU Usage.)

Note that an entry whose text overruns the column can be expanded by clicking within the text field in the entry. (Avoid clicking on the text itself if it is a link.)


Create and connect to a Room

Only the Admin user and Org/Room Managers of an organization can create a Room and connect to it.

In this creation scenario, your organization will be both the Room's owner organization and the Room's connected organization. (i.e.: Your organization will be the Room's owner+connected organization.)

All of the ways to create/connect/join a Room are covered in the Tehama Installation section of Tehama's Getting Started Guide.

If you want to create a Room and connect to it, see Room Creation Scenario 1 in the installation guide.

Once your Room is created, it will appear in the list of Rooms in the Tehama Web UI.


Create a Room and invite another organization to connect to it

Only the Admin user and Org/Room Managers of an organization can create a Room and invite another organization to connect to it.

In this creation scenario, your organization will be the Room's owner organization and the other organization will be its connected organization. (i.e.: Your organization will be the Room's user+owner organization and the other organization will be the Room's connected-only organization.)

All of the ways to create/connect/join a Room are covered in the Tehama Installation section of Tehama's Getting Started Guide.

If you want to create a Room and get another organization to connect to it, see Room Creation Scenario 2 in the installation guide.

Once your Room is created, it will appear in the list of Rooms in the Tehama Web UI.


Connect to a Room via invitation

Only the Admin user and Org Managers of an organization can connect their organization to a Room, having received an invitation to do so from the Room's owner organization.

In this configuration scenario, your organization will be the Room's connected organization and the other organization will be its owner. (i.e.: Your organization will be the Room's connected-only organization and the organization that invited you will be the Room's user+owner organization.)

All of the ways to create/connect/join a Room are covered in the Tehama Installation section of Tehama's Getting Started Guide.

If you want to respond to an invitation to connect your network to a Room created by another organization, see Room Configuration Scenario 1 in the installation guide.


Join a Room via invitation

Only the Admin user and Org Managers of an organization can join their organization to a Room, having received an invitation to do so from the Room's connected organization.

In this configuration scenario, your organization will not have any particular management responsibilities in the Room. _(i.e.: Your organization will be (one of) the Room's user-only organization(s).)

All of the ways to create/connect/join a Room are covered in the Tehama Installation section of Tehama's Getting Started Guide.

Once a Room has been created and connected, the connected organization for a Room can invite other organizations to join the Room.

If you want to respond to an invitation to join a Room, see Room Configuration Scenario 2 in the installation guide.


Delete or archive a Room

Only the Admin user and Org Managers and Room Managers (who are members of the Room) of a Room's owner organization (owner+connected or user+owner) in a Room can delete or archive the Room.

  7. Click SAVE to save your change, or CANCEL to cancel your change. (Note that the SAVE and CANCEL buttons only become visible once you have changed the toggle's currently saved value.)

 • Enable/Disable Recordings

The Recordings Room feature provides recordings of the Room's Desktop sessions.

From the time it is enabled, any subsequent desktop sessions in the room will be recorded.

From the time it is disabled, any subsequent desktop sessions in the room will not be recorded.

Recordings are available in the Room's SESSIONS page under the AUDIT tab. See the Desktop Session Auditing/Recordings User Guide for more details.

Note, any recordings that are already present will continue to be available once the feature is disabled.

This Room feature is a useful capability, but it does come with a cost in Desktop performance and availability. When Recordings are enabled in a Room, the Room can support a maximum of 75 concurrent Desktop sessions. When Recordings are disabled, the Room can support up to 200 concurrent Desktop sessions. Room owner organizations are encouraged to contact Tehama Support if they would like assistance in optimizing their Room environment for performance and availability, taking your auditing needs into consideration.

IMPORTANT: Before enabling the Recordings feature for a Room, confirm that the current number of concurrent Desktop sessions in the Room is at most 75. Enabling Recordings while the number of concurrent Desktop sessions is higher than this maximum will result in undefined behaviour. You can view a list of the "in-use" Desktop Templates in your Room on the DESKTOPS page. (See section View list of in-use Desktop templates in your Organization in the Desktops User Guide.)

Enable or disable the Recordings Room feature as follows:

  1. Access the Room's interface.
  2. Click the Room's CONFIGURE tab.
  3. Click on the SETTINGS sidebar item.
  4. Click on the EDIT button at the top right of the ROOM SETTINGS section.
  5. Locate the toggle to the right of the "Recordings" feature.
  6. Enable or disable the feature as follows:
