Landing Zones describe a set of policies that are automatically applied to tenants created for a meshProject. They relate to a "bootstrap" configuration in the meshPlatform, that sets up and configures the cloud tenant according to policies and requirements of your company.
Typical use-cases for Landing Zones are setting up cloud tenants to restrict administrative privileges over core configuration like identity and access management. This ensures company policies with regards to authentication and authorization are consistently enforced across all cloud tenants. Other common use cases include cloud service or region restrictions to ensure compliance regarding data processing restrictions.
Another use-case is defining default quotas in private cloud environments that are directly applied to your meshTenant after creation. This allows your operators to provide you direct access with a limited scope. When you require a higher quota, you can create a quota request, which must be approved by a platform operator.
Operators can provide multiple Landing Zones per meshPlatform. This allows e.g. different setups for a Dev, QA and Production stage. Landing zones can also consume project meta-data like cost-center or similar attributes and use it.
Only your Platform Operators can configure Landing Zones and control their content. Your operations team can provide details how Landing Zones are used in your meshcloud installation.
Using Landing Zones
Customer administrators can chose a Landing zone when adding meshTenants to a meshProject. It is not possible to change the chosen Landing Zone of an existing meshTenant. The only way of doing so is by removing the meshTenant and creating another by re-adding the same meshPlatform to the Project again.
