Overview

The Settings > Organization options specify the default organization settings (storage quotas, destinations, reporting, indexing, and security) for any new organizations you create. These system-wide settings also affect settings for organizations that are configured to inherit the system-wide settings.

Disabled inheritance
If you disable inheritance for an organization, that organization is not affected by changes to its parent organization.

Quotas

Adjust organization quotas from Settings > Organization > Quotas.

Settings Organization Quotas

Item Description
a Maximum user subscriptions

Sets the maximum number of active user subscriptions.

b Move deactivated archives to cold storage for Period of time to store archives from deactivated devices. After this period expires, the archives are deleted from the store point's file system.
c Backup disk quota

Total amount of storage the entire organization is allowed to consume.

d Backup user disk quota Total amount of storage each user is allowed to consume across all devices.
e Backup user mobile quota Total number of mobile devices (iOS, Android, etc.) that are allowed to access the organization.
f Web restore limit*

Amount of data that users are allowed to restore in a single web restore session.

  • A value of 0 MB disables web restores for users.
  • Select Unlimited to set no web restore limit.
g Web restore limit for Org Manager Role*

Amount of data that organization administrators are allowed to restore during a web restore or restore-to-device session.

  • A value of 0 MB disables web restores for organization administrators.
  • Select Unlimited to set no web restore limit.

* Note: Default web restore limit is set to 250 MB. While this limit can be adjusted to suit specific production deployments, please note that zip files have inherent size limitations. Our Customer Champions have observed that file selections larger than 1 GB have a higher likelihood of failing. Web restores are primarily intended to provide quick, small downloads for emergency situations, or when other restore methods are not available. Large restores should either be done through the Code42 app or using the push restore feature.
