No knowledge base article on Instance Management screen? What is Service Account and Key Attribute?

Options

This page seems to not have any documentation around it, and no explanation of what it means by service account email and key attribute. I have made instances through AEs before but I don't believe these were asked for.

    Hey @tempus_jg !

    The key attribute is related to the mapping of instances to users. This is used when embedding entire Domo instances in an app or portal and automatically routes users to the correct instance.

    We have some documentation here: https://domo-support.domo.com/s/article/6523741250455?language=en_US

    It is also used for Dynamic PDP; automatically segregating large datasets when publishing. This is particularly helpful for data security as you can divide datasets based on the customer/instance that should have access.

    That's a pretty high level description, but let us know if we can help with anything else there!

    @JohnMiller Thank you for the explanation and the doc! I searched routing, mapping, and everything and kept coming up empty.
