Fabric administrators and IaaS administrators can use the Infrastructure Organizer to organize compute resources into fabric groups, assign cost profiles to compute resources, import existing virtual machines, and associate imported machines with business groups.

Depending on your role or combination of roles, you can leverage different capabilities of the Infrastructure Organizer.

IaaS administrators do not have access to the Infrastructure Organizer. However, you can create a fabric group and nominate yourself as the fabric administrator so that you can leverage the organizer to quickly place your compute resources into fabric groups.
