Overview

A default organization is created when your Code42 environment is set up. This tutorial explains how to create additional organizations in your Code42 environment.

Considerations

  • Organizations are a method for organizing users and applying shared settings.
  • A user can only belong to one organization at a time.
Changing organizations can affect backups
If users are moved to a different organization, it could affect their backup. For example:
  • Different destinations offered: If the new organization does not offer the same destinations as the user's previous organization, any of the user's data from destinations that are no longer offered is put into cold storage. Data in cold storage is deleted according to your cold storage retention policy.
  • Frequency and version settings: Any differences in the new organization's frequency and version settings are applied to the backup archive after the user device connects to the authority server. Depending on the new organization's frequency and version settings, some data could be removed.
  • Auto-start backups: If the new organization has any destinations configured to auto-start, the Code42 app begins backing up to those destinations immediately. Destinations that are not configured to auto-start appear in the Code42 app for the user to select. 

Add an organization

  1. Sign in to the Code42 administration console.
  2. Versions 6.5 and later: Select Organizations > Active from the navigation menu.
    Versions 6.0.x: Select Organizations from the navigation menu.
  3. Click Add an Organization Add Organization button.
  4. Enter a descriptive name for the organization.
  5. Click Add to create the organization.

Add a child organization

  1. Sign in to the administration console.
  2. Versions 6.5 and later: Select Organizations > Active from the navigation menu.
    Versions 6.0.x: Select Organizations from the navigation menu.
  3. Select the organization to which you want to add a child organization.
  4. From the action menu, select Add a Child Organization.
  5. Enter a descriptive name for the organization.
  6. Click Add to create the organization.
Organization inheritence
Child organizations inherit the device backup settings of their parent organization by default. To edit the settings for a child organization, open the organization details and select Device Backup Default Settings from the action menu. Then, disable the Use device defaults from parent setting.
