Create an Organisation

Overview

Everything on the Tapico Platform happens in the context of an Organisation. An Organisation represents your company on the Tapico Platform. If you have been invited to join an existing Organisation you can proceed under that Organisation. If you have signed up directly we'll need to create a new Organisation before you can use any of Tapico's services.

Once you have created an Organisation you will be able to:

  • Invite your colleagues to join you on Tapico
  • Register a domain to use against any Upstream you might create
  • Create one to many Application that can consume services provided by the Tapico Platform

What is an Upstream?

An upstream is an optional service that is available if you wish to use the Tapico platform as an API gateway to expose connections into resource servers managed by your Organisation. If you want to know more about this optional service please connect [email protected]

2. Assign Members to your Organisation.

Invite your colleagues to become a Member of your Organisation to allow them to create and manage Applications on your behalf. This is optional.

Invite them using their email address and assign a specific access level.

  • Owner: Highest access level on the Tapico Platform. Owners can create and edit Applications under any Organisation they belong to as well as invite and remove members.
  • ReadWrite: Same as access as an Owner without the ability to invite others to become members.
  • ReadOnly: Lowest access level on the Tapico Platform. User's with ReadOnly permissions can only view entities relating to the Organisation they have ReadOnly access to. They cannot create or edit.

3. Create one or more Domains for your Organisation.

You can add different domains for your Organisation to be used if you wish to create an Upstream.
