As an administrator the AMPLIFY Platform lets you view details about your organization, manage the users who have access to the AMPLIFY Services, manage the applications created by members of your organization, and configure an Identity Provider and manage associated domains. All of these functions are available through the Organization tab. To access the Organization tab, sign in to the AMPLIFY Platform and select Organization from the User dropdown menu.
This section details which capabilities an organization can use, which assets a user can consume or what actions a user can take.
Let's start from the beginning and look at what an organization is in the AMPLIFY Platform. An organization can be seen as a single instance of the platform. An organization is uniquely identified by an Organization Identifier (Org ID). As a best practice, an organization is a company, and the teams concept (see further below) is used to have a clear separation of assets between working groups such as departments, projects, and individual users.
An organization is linked to one or more subscriptions. Subscriptions define the platform capabilities that the organization is allowed to use. For example, the test organization has an Enterprise subscription to Application Development and a terminated trial subscription to Application Integration.
When you sign up for a trial of the platform, then an organization is automatically created for you and you become the administrator that manages the organization and you get a default list of subscriptions. When a customer purchases our platform capabilities, then an Axway administrator creates an organization, assigns the correct subscriptions, and makes a user of the customer an administrator of the platform.
An organization can have child organizations. These child organizations are allocated resources from the parent organization. An administrator of the parent organization can create child organizations and manage both the parent and child organizations.
A user (referred to as a member in the platform) can belong to multiple organizations. Select Switch Org from the User & Org menu to see which organizations you belong to and to switch to a different organization.
Each organization has one or more members. At least one member needs to be an administrator. If a new organization is created, then the first member becomes an Administrator. An administrator can change the roles of the members, with the restriction that there always needs to be at least one member that has the Administrator role. The test organization currently contains seven members.
We can distinguish the following types of roles in the AMPLIFY Platform:
The roles that you have in a specific organization can be seen in the Orgs & Roles page. The test organization shows a user belongs to 19 organizations and has specific roles per organization.
Users can belong to one or more teams or not belong to any teams at all. A team is a logical grouping of users and assets. The idea is to enable you to create teams so that certain groups of people can work together on and use the same assets. A team belongs to one organization and the members of a team also need to be a member of that organization. The same user can belong to multiple teams and can also have a different role in each team. Each organization always has a default team.
When creating items such as API Proxies in AMPLIFY Central or Unified Catalog Assets one team always needs to be chosen as an owner. Only members of the owning team can make changes or remove the items. The following is an example showing the owning team of Unified Catalog items.
Unified Catalog items can be shared with other teams. The teams need to be belong to the same organization. The other teams can then discover and consume those items, but they cannot make changes to them.
Users can be assigned different roles that grant them the rights to the Platform associated with their assigned roles and capabilities. A user always needs to be assigned one platform role and can be assigned zero, one, or more of the other roles.
The following table shows the available roles and capabilities.
