Data privacy / Self hosted front-end

Hi everyone,

First of all, I’m new to forestadmin and If this post isn’t at the right location, please tell me where I can get an answer and I will remove it.
Is there a way to run and hosted by myself the front-end locally, instead of going thought forestadmin server ?

My data is quite sensitive.

In advance thanks,


Hi @Louisgfhjcyik !
There are no bad questions :wink:
You could use the self hosted version of Forest, I’ll ping one of our sales so that they reach out to you !

Hello @Louisgfhjcyik,

Forest Admin does not have access to your data, by design. It’s possible with the standard version of Forest Admin to be sure that your data never leave your network:

  • deploy the agent behind a firewall, on the same network than your users
  • access forest admin normally behind your firewall

Users are only downloading the frontend from Forest Admin’s servers, and saving metadata (which column is displayed, in what order etc). All access to data is only made by the web clients directly to the deployed agent, and if clients are on the same network than your agent, you can ensure that only them can access your sensitive data.
