When you create an organization, you are the organization owner. You can change this later after you add more users to the organization.

Note

To join an existing organization, you need to contact the organization owner.

To create an organization, we request the following information:

  • Contact Email: We use this email to contact your company for support purposes. If you’re a single user, you can use your login email.
  • Organization Name: You can name your organization anything you want and update this name at any time. If you’re part of a company that takes advantage of Role-Based Access Control in the future, use your company or division name. If you’re a single user, use your name or any other identifier.
  • Phone Number: If we are unable to reach you via email, this is the phone number that we use to contact you for billing or support.

Mission Control

After you have created your organization, you gain access to Mission Control. Mission Control is the ObjectRocket user interface that lets you create, manage, monitor, and view your databases, as well as contact ObjectRocket Support.

Role-Based Access Control

ObjectRocket uses Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), which allows you to assign multiple logins, with various levels of access, to a single account. After you create your organization, you can use the Mission Control interface to add new users and assign roles based on what you want them to be able to do.

  1. Log in to Mission Control.
  2. Select Users from the left-hand menu.
  3. Select Invite a User.
  4. Enter the email address for the user you want to invite.
  5. Select a Role from the drop-down menu.
  6. Select the checkmark.

The following table explains the levels of access for each role.
