Your VMware account can be associated with one or several VMware Cloud services Organizations. VMware Cloud uses Organizations to provide controlled access to one or more services. To access a cloud service, you must belong to an Organization.

If you are an Organization Owner user, you have access to all the resources of the Organization. You add cloud services to your Organization, and then invite users to join. You manage the Organization payment methods and user access. If you hold an Organization Member user role, you have limited access to the Organization's resource.

To see what you can do within your Organization with your role, see How do I manage roles and permissions.
