As an organization owner, you invite users to your organization and give them access to the services associated with it. You can also track the invitations you send. Invitations are valid for up to seven days. If you have sent an invitation in error, you can revoke it.

The users you invite can hold several roles:

  • A role within the organization - organization owner or organization member. To see the permissions assigned to each of these roles, see What organization roles are available in VMware Cloud Services.
  • A role within the cloud service to which you are inviting the user. Each cloud service has its own specific roles. For more information, refer to the documentation of the relevant VMware Cloud services.
  • A custom role created in the organization. Custom roles are composed of different service roles.
  • Depending on your customer profile, you might also view the Managed Service Provider role which enables users to query the cloud service APIs for customer usage and data. If you assign this role to users of a tenant organization, they will have access to all the data within the organization.
