Top-down model

In the top-down model, the main corporate organization adds each department's organization as a member.


It is permissible for one person to be a member of multiple department organizations. If those organizations provide different levels of access to the corporate organization, the individual will be granted the higher level of access.

Key features

  • Membership to the main corporate organization can be granted to individuals directly or through their membership in department orgs

  • Different departments can be granted different levels of access over resources owned by the main corporate org(e.g everyone in a 'Governance' org can be given Admin access to the corporate org)

  • Resources owned at the department level must be explicitly shared company wide - there's greater control over which other departments can see them

  • Removing members from the corporate organization does not revoke access to department organizations


  • When the main corporate organization has multiple Collections, administrators have control over all Collections
