Organizational Units


You can organize your environments in CloudGuard into Organizational Units. Organizational Units are user-defined groupings of accounts. An Organizational Unit could depict, for example, the accounts for a business unit in an enterprise, or a geographical location. You can associate your accounts with an Organizational Unit, with accounts from different cloud providers. In addition, you can create Organizational Units in existing Organizational Units, creating a logical hierarchy.

Initially, your account has a 'root' Organizational Unit that includes all environments that have been onboarded to CloudGuard. From there, you can create more Organizational Units and associate environments with them (they are moved from root). An account can correspond with only one Organizational Unit at a time, but one Organizational Unit can be a sub-unit of a different one.

You can label Organizational Units with a name, but sub-Organizational Units of the same parent cannot have the same name.

You can delete Organizational Units. All environments related to it and its sub-Organizational Units are moved to the 'root' unit, and all sub-Organizational Units are deleted with it.
