Organizations

Organizations are the basic container into which all scenarios, users, and data belong.

Organizations usually represent a company that is a Make customer or partner. Each organization has a separate pricing plan and is billed separately. This means that you can also monitor your operations and data consumption for each organization separately.

Each organization allows you to select the geographical location of the data center, where the organization's data will be stored and processed. Currently, Make supports two data center locations:

  • United States (US)

  • European Union (EU)

Note

The geographical location that you select for an organization does not represent where your company or your users are located, but where the data center that stores and processes your data is located.

Make recommends that you select the location closest to you to ensure low latency.

Warning

You cannot change the location of the data center after you create the organization.

Creating organizations

Any user can create their own organization, even if they already are a member of another organization.

  1. Click your user name in the left menu, and then click Profile.

  2. In the Organizations tab, click Create a new organization.

  3. Fill in the details of the new organization. Note that Region represents the location of the data center that will store and process your data. Country represents your physical location but is currently not used by Make in any way.

Make creates your new organization. By default, the pricing plan for the organization is set to Free. The organization contains one team, called My team.

Adding users to organizations

To add users to an organization, you must be the owner or an admin of the organization. For more details about roles, refer to Organization roles.

  2. Click Invite a new user.

  3. In the dialog that opens, fill in the details of the user:

    • Email - the address to which to send the invitation email.

    • Name - the name of the user. The user can change their name after they accept the invitation.

    • Role in the organization

    • Teams

      Note

      You must select at least one team for the user to be able to work with Make.

    • Note - a custom message that will appear in the invitation email.

When the user accepts the invitation, the system adds them to the organization. The system also adds the user to the selected team with the Team member role. More about Teams.

Organization roles

Make provides a two-level permission model. All users are members of at least one organization and one team. The permissions that users have are determined by the organization role and team role that they are assigned to.

The following table describes actions that members of different organization roles can perform.

For information about team roles, read the article about teams.

Switching organizations
