Set up an organizational hierarchy

Understand what options you have for setting up your organization structure in CoreStack.

Overview

Once you have completed the initial steps for setting up your CoreStack account, you can organize your tenants and users into a hierarchy. This will help you facilitate efficient, role-based activities inside your CoreStack account and help drive better accountability across your team(s).

In this user guide, we'll briefly explain how organizational hierarchy works within CoreStack as well as what options you have for setting that up.

Tenant organization in CoreStack

CoreStack out of the box supports multi-tenancy.

In enterprises and IT organizations, there will be multiple departments. Associates and resources under each department are normally isolated from each other. This isolation is needed not only for financial accounting but also for security and management. Though the associates can have access to multiple departments, their permissions will vary.
