Set up an account
When getting started on Y42, there are three things we need to configure: an account, an organization, and a workspace. This section will explore their scopes and how to configure your account and organization.
We'll be setting up the following entities:
- Account: Every user on the platform has an account. When you navigate to the login portal (opens in a new tab), you use your account to sign in (either with email, SSO, Google, or Microsoft).
- Organization: An account is linked to one or more organizations. Typically, an organization is a company-wide entity.
- Space: Within the organization, we can have one or more spaces. How you use spaces is quite flexible. You could have a space per team, per project, or whatever works well for collaborating with your team mates.
If you don't have an account yet, get in touch with us (opens in a new tab) and we'll set you up.
Navigate to https://y42.dev (opens in a new tab) and log in with your user account. If you are already part of an organization, you'll see a prompt to select the organization to which you'd like to continue. You might also see a list of orgaizations you can join, and there'll be an option to create a new organization.

Choose a name for the organization; this is usually your company's name. You can change the name later if you want to.
Your organization will receive a stable organization URL to access the Y42 platform. It consists of a base URL, followed by a string of your choice. If you enter
acme, for example, your organization's URL will become
We now have your account and organization, so it's time to create a space. In the next section, we'll set up a new space and connect it to our data warehouse.
