Tenants (OrchardCore.Tenants)

The Tenants module allows to manage tenants from the admin.

Static File Provider Feature

This feature registers a file provider for each tenant in order to serve custom files per tenant, even if they have the same names.

Once enabled on a tenant, a folder wwwroot is created in the App_Data\Sites\[Tenant] folder. Any file that is placed in this folder will be served under the same domain and prefix as the tenant.

Any static file that is placed in the content root folder of the website will be served first.

robots.txt for Tenants

Static File Provider allows you to setup robots.txt per tenant. To create robots.txt for each tenant, Place robots.txt under App_Data\Sites\[Tenant]\wwwroot folder




Feature Profiles

This feature allows the Default tenant to create Feature Profiles which can restrict the features available to a tenant with Feature Rules.

Creating a feature profile

  1. Enable the Tenant Feature Profiles feature on the Default tenant.
  2. Go to the Configuration -> Tenant Feature Profiles menu.
  3. Select Add Feature Profile.
  4. Add a Name and a set of Rules.

Rule Configuration

Rules are a JSON array of Rule Expressions.

A rule consists of the Rule Name, and an Expression, which supports simple matching, i.e. characters, or the * or ? modifier.

By default the available rules are Exclude and Include

Consider the following

    "Rule": "Exclude",
    "Expression": "OrchardCore.AdminTemplates"
    "Rule": "Exclude",
    "Expression": "TheAgencyTheme"

In this rule we exclude the OrchardCore.AdminTemplates and TheAgencyTheme features

or we can use wild card matching

    "Rule": "Exclude",
    "Expression": "MyModules.Custom.*"
    "Rule": "Include",
    "Expression": "MyModules.Custom.IncludedModule"

In this example we exclude all Features starting with MyModules.Custom., and then specifically include MyModules.Custom.IncludedModule

Rules are processed in the order they are supplied, so reversing the order of the above will cause the last rule, i.e. the Exclude rule to be applied, negating the Include rule.

Selecting a feature profile

  1. Create a Feature Profile.
  2. Go to the Configuration -> Tenants menu.
  3. Edit the tenant. 4 Select a feature profile from the dropdown.

The Feature Profile drop down will only be available if at least one Feature Profile has been configured.

A feature profile can also be set when creating a tenant via the web API.
