The distributed instance

The distributed instance is a special instance that exists in every space. It serves the purpose of accumulating distributions of the space. The distributed instance is particularly useful in the context of education as it is possible to spawn new student instances from the distributed instance.

The distributed instance has a number of special properties that distinguish it from regular instances.

Changing the content of the distributed instance

The distributed instance has special content access and modification rules:

  • It is only possible to push content to the distributed instance via distribution.

  • It is currently not possible to delete specific objects from the distributed instance. If you need to delete from the distributed instance, please contact our support.

Access to the distributed instance

All editors of all instances of a particular space have a viewer role on the distributed instance. As a consequence, it is possible for any editor to distribute to their own instance from the distributed instance of the space.
