Users of VMware Cloud Services can have any of the following Organization roles in any Organization: Organization Member, Organization Administrator, or Organization Owner.

Organization roles and permissions

The level of permissions for each Organization varies:
  • The Organization Owner role has full administrative access to all resources in the Organization. Organization Owner users can also self-assign roles to themselves.
  • The Organization Administrator role has limited administrative access. Organization Administrator users can assign services roles to any organization role, but can manage only users, groups and OAuth apps that have roles with the same or lower administrative permissions.

    For example, an Organization Administrator user can grant or manage access for other users and groups who have the Organization Member or Organization Administrator role in the Organization, but cannot manage users, groups, or resources who are assigned the Organization Owner role.

  • The Organization Member role has read-only access to the Organization resources.
Here's what you need to know about the permissions of the three Organization roles in VMware Cloud Services. If a user is assigned roles that conflict with one another, they receive the role that has greater permissions.
