Organizations

Organizations allow users to unlock the full potential of the Losant Platform by allowing multiple members to collaborate on shared applications and dashboards. Additionally, organizations have significantly higher limits than Sandboxes on devices, payload counts and data retention periods, as well as additional platform support options.

You can see all the organizations that you are a member of on the organization listing page page, which can be found in the menu under your name on the top right of the screen.

Organization Overview

Selecting an organization will take you to the home page of the organization. Here you can see all the applications and dashboards owned by the organization, as well as the current organization members. This is also where you have the option to leave an organization if you no longer wish to be a member.

Organization Pricing

Organization pricing is a function of a number of factors:

  • The number of resources your applications will require (such as devices, organization members and experience users)
  • How many payloads you expect to generate per month
  • Your data retention requirements
  • Costs for our solutions team assisting in the buildout of your IoT application (if required)
  • Other special factors, such as if you require on-premises installation of the platform, single tenancy or SLAs

Creating Organization Resources

If you have Editor permissions for at least one organization, you will have the option of setting the owner of any new application or dashboard you create to one of your organizations, or to your own Sandbox.

Organization New Resource Owner

If the resource has already been created, and you have Administrator permissions for its owner organization, you will have the option of transferring ownership of that resource to another organization where you have Administrator permissions or to your own Sandbox. Note that, when transferring resources, the entity receiving the transfer must not exceed any of its resource limits or the transfer will fail.
