What is an organization?

An organization is a top-level resource that can access the Kaleido platform and is a prerequisite for any administrative operations (e.g., environment creation, node generation, etc.). Dependent on the consortium membership approach, resources in a blockchain network exist within the purview of either a single organization or multiple organizations.

Via the Kaleido console, organizations can generate “admin credentials” (aka an APIKEY), which can be leveraged to perform administrative resource management ops through the Kaleido API. An organization's administrator can extend invitations to additional users, whereby they are granted the same level of administrative authority. Note that these invitations should be provisioned carefully, as any on-boarded users will possess the same root privileges as the organizational admin.
