An Organization is a basic unit of isolation of data sources, workspaces, and users.

You create an Organization after you have successfully installed GoodData Cloud Native (GoodData.CN) on your site.

When a new Organization is created, it contains a single user group and an administrator user who belongs to that user group. This administrator user sets up authentication for the Organization including setting up an OpenID Connect (OIDC) Identity Provider and mapping users.

To access the data in the Organization and its API resources, the users use the Organization’s hostname that is assigned to the Organization when it is created. For authentication, all the users use the OIDC Identity Provider that the administrator user set up.

Because GoodData.CN is deployed to Kubernetes, the lifecycle of the Organization is tightly coupled with the Ingress resource that is responsible for mapping incoming requests to the services for the Organization’s hostname. TLS is also configured using Ingress resources.
