Difference between organizations and teams

Jump to solution
Hi.
Could someone please explain the meaning of organizations and teams in Ansible Controller to me? I would like to have different projects where users are isolated between projects, meaning members of one project can only see things within the project they are a member of. Of course, a user can be a member of multiple projects. In this case, should I create an organization or a team for the project?

@dkcbk -

@Trevor did a wonderful job with the visual illustration, but I will break things down maybe even easier for you as the purpose here is even a little easier to understand.

Teams: Are a group of users and allow assigning permissions to a user group rather than single users at a time.

Organizations: Are a way of having a single Enterprise-level Automation controller and provide a method to more easily separate the enterprise into organizations. The organizations then is the "top-level" and from there you can have projects, job templates, and other resources managed within the "Organization" which more easily allows applying RBAC (Role-Based Access Controls).

Hello dkcbk,

The difference between Organizations and Teams.  I will begin with the
diagram below, which is a great visual to see the relationship between
the two:

Trevor_0-1694965017305.png

So, right away, you can see that a Team is something (an object) that
exists within an Organization.

Next, I'll provide a definition for Ogranizations:

An Organization is a logical collection of Users, Teams, Projects,
and Inventories, and is the highest level in the automation controller
object hierarchy.

Some of following is apparent from the above diagram:

*  A Team is added to an Organization

*  In order to add a Team to an Organization, the Team must already be created

*  A user is a member of an Organization

*  A user is a member of a Team

*  A Team is a subdivision of an organization with associated users, projects,
     credentials, and permissions.

*  Multiple Teams can be created for an Organization

Each Team can be assigned permissions

*  Each user can be assigned permissions

Now that we have that little introduciton, let's get to your question:
"I would like to have different projects where users are isolated between projects, meaning members of one project can only see things within the project they are a member of".

Answer:  Assign permissions to each project, that controls what each user can read,
                  modify, and administer!!! 
                

Stay tuned for resposnes from other members of the community, that will provide
a much more expansive and elegant explanation to your query!

Thank you Trevor! If I understand correctly, organizations are created for different areas. For example, an organization for OpenShift administration, an organization for server administration, and an organization for automating database administration?

Travis, as I mentioned to dkcbk, other community members would be weighing
in with more elegant responses, and you certainly did just that!!!  Feeling that
you would be batting cleanup, I knew all I had to do was get on base

Thanks for another succinct and impactful response!!!
