Overview of the V‑Spark Hierarchy

Understanding how to use the V‑Spark API requires that you understand how the different components that make up a V‑Spark installation are organized. This organization can be thought of as the V‑Spark hierarchy:

  1. company — the highest structural entity within the hierarchy of a V‑Spark installation. Multiple companies can be defined within a V‑Spark installation, but only the administrators of that installation or users with company-level administrative privileges can view and modify the data that is associated with a company. Each user in a V‑Spark installation is associated with a single company.

  2. organization — a logical unit (group) within a company

  3. folder — a repository for files and transcripts that are associated with an organization. Multiple folders can be associated with a single organization.

  4. applications — customized analytics tools that are associated with one or more folders

  5. users — individual accounts that are defined within a company and can belong to one or more organizations

  6. system — administrative configuration information that is associated with a single V‑Spark installation.


For information about the users of a V‑Spark installation and the roles and permissions that they have, refer to the V‑Spark Management Guide.
