» 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 on which workspaces.
