Working with organizations

Subscriptions, applications, and teams in Acquia Cloud are grouped under an organization. An organization can represent different business objects for different entities. For example, all of a company's applications might be grouped under a single organization, or separate business units within a company whose applications are developed, deployed, and managed independently might be set up as separate organizations.

Your organizations are set up by Acquia when you create an Acquia subscription. Each subscription, including its applications, and each team belongs to one (and only one) organization. A team member may be on teams that are assigned to any number of organizations.

Viewing organizations

To view your organizations, complete the following steps:

  1. Sign in to the Acquia Cloud interface.
  2. Select your organization.
  3. Click Manage in the top menu.

The My Organizations page displays an information card for each organization in which you have a role. This information card displays the organization's Owner and Administrators, along with additional information, based on your organization role.

  • If you are the Owner or an Administrator of the organization, the card displays the number of teams, roles, and subscriptions in the organization.

  • If you are not the Owner or an Administrator of the organization, the card displays the teams that you are a member of and your roles on each team.

If you are the Owner or an Administrator, or have the administer team permission (which by default a Team lead has), you can use the links at the bottom of the information card to invite a member to a team or remove a member from teams. For more information, see Managing team members.

To view more details about the organization, including the organization's teams, team members, and applications, click the organization name or the Manage button at the bottom of the card.

Organization roles and actions

Each organization has a single Owner and one or more Administrators. The Owner and Administrators have all permissions relating to every application under the organization. They also have the ability to give other users the Administrator role.

Use the following table to learn more about the different actions that Owners and Administrators can take with organizations:

Action Owner Administrator
Create and remove teams Yes Yes

  3. Enter the new name for the organization, and then click Rename.
