Organizations allow multiple members to collaborate on shared applications and dashboards.

Organization Overview

Within Losant, the organization defines access to applications, payload usage, and data retention periods, as well as additional platform support options.

Viewing Your Organizations

You can see all of the organizations that you are a member of by navigating to the Organization Overview Page. This can be accessed from anywhere in the platform by clicking the Organizations icon in the navigation sidebar and selecting View all Organizations.

Creating a New Organization

Contact Losant for additional information on organization setup. For more details about a Losant Enterprise License, see the Pricing Page.

Note: If you have an Enterprise account and would like the ability to create and manage multiple organizations, our Instance Manager tool may be a suitable solution. Contact your Losant account manager for additional information.

Creating Organization Resources

If you have Editor permissions or higher within an organization, and the organization has available resources, you can select that organization (or your own Sandbox) as the owner of any new application or dashboard you create.

Select Owner

The same preconditions apply in order to import, clone, or transfer resources into an organization.

Managing Organizations

If you have Administrator permissions within an organization, several administrative options are available in the organization’s navigation sidebar:

Updating Organization Info

Clicking the “Organization Info” link takes you to a page where you can edit basic details of the organization. From here you can edit the organization’s name, description and icon color.

Deleting an Organization

To delete an organization, click the “Delete Organization” button in the bottom bar. This action cannot be undone.

Deleting an organization will:

  • Delete all data tied to those applications and their sub-resources.
  • Delete all dashboards tied to the organization.
  • Nullify any pending organization invitations.

Deleting an organization will NOT:

  • Delete or otherwise affect the Losant accounts of any organization member, including those members’ Sandbox resources or resources tied to other organizations
  • Cancel any outstanding debt for provided services.

Organization Usage

Organization Settings Usage

This screen displays your detailed resource and payload usage for the current billing period. See our Resource Limits page for more details.

Audit Logs

If audit logs are enabled for your organization, and you have Administrator permissions for the organization, you will see an “Audit Logs” link. See our Audit Logs page for more details.

Disabled Organizations

Organizations may be disabled by Losant for billing purposes, trial period expiration, or abusive practices. No resources are deleted, and data may still be accessed, but new payloads will not execute and state reports will be rejected. Users who have a disabled organization should reach out to their Losant account manager to have it reinstated.
