Domain separation with Spotlight

If you have domain separation enabled, Spotlight applies it during Spotlight jobs.

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 Global domain.

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 user. 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 user.)
Note: The snapshot of each indicator can differ depending on the domain configuration of the Performance Analytics data collection job that creates the snapshot.
