» Users, Teams, and Organizations

Terraform Cloud's organizational and access control model is based on three units: users, teams, and organizations.

  • Users are individual members of an organization. They belong to teams, which are granted permissions on an organization’s workspaces.
  • Teams are groups of users that reflect your company's organizational structure. Organization owners can create teams and manage their membership.
  • Organizations are shared spaces for teams to collaborate on workspaces. An organization can have many teams, and the owners of the organization set which teams have which permissions (read/write/admin) on which workspaces.
