Domain of the Spotlight group
When you create a Spotlight group, you create it in the domain of the user that you are logged
in as when you create the group. For example, if you are a user in the ACME Products domain and
you create a Spotlight group, that group is created in the ACME Products domain. If you create a
Spotlight group as a user who is not a member of any domain, that Spotlight group is in the
You can copy a Spotlight group to other domains, as defined in Now Platform® domain separation.
Spotlight criteria domains
- When you create Spotlight criteria for a global Spotlight group, the criteria are created
in the domain of the logged-in user.
- When you create Spotlight criteria for a Spotlight group that is in a specific domain, the
Spotlight criteria are created in that domain.
Messages inform you of the domain situation when you create Spotlight criteria.
Evaluating scores with domain separation
If the Spotlight group evaluates platform data, the main indicator and all criteria are
queried according to the domain and domain visibility of the Run As
If the Spotlight group evaluates records from a snapshot, the main indicator and
indicator-based criteria use the Performance Analytics
snapshot that is
collected specifically for the Run As
user domain. The domain visibility
of the Run As
user does not apply to indicators in this case.
(Query-based criteria always evaluate platform data, even when the Spotlight group is configured
to evaluate snapshots. Therefore, query-based criteria always follow both the domain and the
domain visibility of the Run As
Note: The snapshot of each
indicator can differ depending on the domain configuration of the Performance Analytics data collection job
that creates the snapshot.
