Tenant and user settings
The Cumulocity IoT DataHub instance you have access to is tenant-specific, that means, this instance solely serves your tenant. You use your Cumulocity IoT account to access your Cumulocity IoT DataHub instance.
In addition to your Cumulocity IoT account, you have a separate account (which is created during the initial configuration) for accessing Dremio. Contact your administrator for the Dremio account credentials. If required for your use case your administrator can also create additional Dremio users. On the Home page there is a direct link to the Dremio instance under Quick links.
