Available for: Enterprise plan customers

Set up by: MURAL Customer Success team

To support our customers in highly regulated industries and geographies, we offer regional data residency for MURAL. MURAL’s data residency capabilities enable Enterprise plan customers to designate the region where data in a mural is stored. This can be customized on a workspace-by-workspace basis.

Data migrations

For existing workspaces, we support the ability to migrate from one region to another. Reach out to a member of the Customer Success team to initiate the process.


Verify data location

There are two ways to check the region in which a workspace resides:

1. Company admins can verify the migration of a workspace by searching for the UPDATE_WORKSPACE_REGION event in MURAL’s Audit Log API.

2. Check the Data Region column on the workspaces page in the company dashboard. Check out our workspace management article for more information.


Limitations

When storing data in a region outside of the United States, you may experience the following:

  • Limited use or unavailability of certain third party integrations.

  • Blocked MURAL API endpoints that create or modify objects on a mural.
