NetBox supports the assignment of resources to tenant organizations. Typically, these are used to represent individual customers of or internal departments within the organization using NetBox.


A tenant represents a discrete organization. The following objects can be assigned to tenants:

  • Sites
  • Racks
  • Devices
  • VRFs
  • Prefixes
  • IP addresses
  • VLANs
  • Circuits

If a prefix or IP address is not assigned to a tenant, it will appear to inherit the tenant to which its parent VRF is assigned, if any.

Tenant Groups

Tenants can be grouped by type. For instance, you might create one group called "Customers" and one called "Acquisitions." The assignment of tenants to groups is optional.
