Sub Organizations

Create sub-organizations in order to compartmentalize your Profiles and Devices into logical groups.

What are Sub-Organizations?

Sub-Organizations are simply groups of Profiles and Devices that belong together. Sub-Organizations can be any of the following:

  • Departments
  • Physical sites
  • Customer companies (if you're an MSP)
  • Anything you wish

All Organizations have the ability to create as many Sub-Organizations as needed.

Create Sub-Organization

To create a Sub-Organization, expand your primary Organization, select Sub-Organizations and click the big + button. You will be presented with the following form.

  • Name - Name of the sub-organization
  • Contact Name and Email - Who is responsible for this sub-organization
  • Address - Optional physical address if any
  • Website - Optional website if any
  • Two-Factor Authentication - If enabled, all members are forced to enable 2FA
  • Users - Optional cap of User type devices that can be created within the sub-org
  • Routers - Optional cap of Router type devices that can be created within the sub-org
  • Data Storage Region - Where Analytics data is hosted
  • Global Profile - Choose any parent organization's Profile to enforce on all sub-organization's devices.

Click the Create button and you're done.

Manage Organizations

Once you have more than zero Sub-Organizations, you will see them in a table.

From this section, you can do the following:

  • View your Sub-Organizations and how many Users, Routers, Profiles and Admins exist in each one
  • See the associated cost with the maximum amount of Users and Routers you have committed to the Sub-Organization
  • From the drop down menu, you can edit Sub-Organization details, membership and delete the Sub-Organization
  • Impersonate an administrator of a Sub-Organization

Sub-Organization Membership

By default, a Sub-Organization has no direct members (admins). Only members of the primary Organization have access to it, with the same permission level as in the primary Organization. Simply click the icon on the right side of the row in order to view the Sub-Organization as if you're a member of it - this is called 'impersonation'. This allows for creation of Profiles and Devices within the Sub-Organization.

If you wish to delegate access to a single Sub-Organization, you can select the Add/Edit Members option from the above drop down menu and invite folks directly into the Sub-Organization. The permission scheme is the same as for the primary Organization, except invited emails would have access solely to the invited Sub-Organization.

User and Router Limits

When creating a Sub-Organization, you may choose the maximum amount of User and Router devices that can exist within the Sub-Organization. For example, if you're creating a Sub-Organization for a managed company that has 100 employees and 2 routers that you wish to secure, you should select those values when creating the Sub-Organization. You can then provision those Users and Devices yourself, or invite someone from the Sub-Organization to do it on your behalf. They will be limited to the number of Users and Routers you have chosen. These limits can be adjusted by an Owner of the primary Organization at any time.

If no limit is chosen, then the sub-organization will be subject to the parent organization's limits, and you will be able to overcommit your device counts. While overcommitted, you will not be able to create new sub-organizations or new devices in parent organization until you increase your Products and Billinglimits.
