An Organization is a group of user accounts, usable across all Datica products. Typically, an organization maps to (and is named after) your company. Organizations are created for you during the provisioning process. It is possible to be a member of multiple organizations.
On The Platform, each environment belongs to a single organization.
Every user in an organization can belong to any number of groups. Groups, via ACLs, allow their members to access Datica resources and products. You can create and delete groups as you see fit. When a new organization is created an Admins group will be created automatically. Typically, an organization only has a few Admins.
Groups are composed of ACLs, currently Datica supports two ACLs, though more are coming:
- Base Can interact and control any component and product of your environment(s), except they do not have VPN access, and the cannot manage users.
- VPN Access Can directly interact with your Datica network, runnings jobs, and services (Note: this is only relevant to organizations and environments that have a running VPN).
Managing Your Organization
Organization management tools are located in The Platform Dashboard—find your organization under the “Organizations” section in the main nav on the left hand side of the dashboard.
Adding Members to Your Organization
New members are added to your organization by sending them an invite, from the management tools. Filling out this form will send an email to the specified address, including instructions on how to join the organization. After the invite is sent, it can be revoked at any time until it is accepted. After it is accepted, it will disappear from this table.
Creating and Deleting Groups
If you want to create a new group that has a different set of ACLs click the
Add Group button. If you want to create a group that has access to everything, you check the “Full Access” checkbox. Note: groups with “Full Access” are implictly granted access to manage users in your organization.
Name the group, and select the ACLs you want the group to have.
