Organization Administration Licensing, also known as Org Admin Licensing, is the ability for a user at an organization to invite people from within their company to use nTop Platform and to manage their cloud licenses. The Org Admin is a role assigned to an individual at an organization by nTopology. This guide walks through how to use the Org Admin Dashboard.

What does Org Admin Licensing offer?
With Org Admin licensing, a user within an organization has the ability to:
- Create departments
- Invite people from different departments
- Assign licenses to users
- View status of licenses
Once the Org Admin has set a password, they can log in to the Organization Dashboard. The Org Admin will have an overview of all users, all departments, and all licenses associated with the organization. Also, the Org Admin will see recently added accounts.
Create and Edit Departments
The Department table gives Org Admin an overview of the organizational departments and a list of attached users. From this table, they can create, edit, and search for departments.
To create a department, select the Add New Department button in the upper right of the Department table. Type in the name of a department and select Create Department. Assign users to departments from the User table.
Invite, Edit, and Manage Users
From the User table, an Org Admin can add, edit, and search for users.
To add a user, select the Add New User button at the top right of the User table and provide the following information in the Add a New User window:
- Full name
- Email address
The last step is to provide the new user with a license from the pool of nTopology licenses.
To add a license to a new user:
- Select the License toggle, which will highlight in purple.
- Select an available license from the drop-down menu that appears once the license toggle is activated.
- Once a license is assigned, it will no longer appear in the drop-down menu.
Once the new user is ready to be added, select Create user. This step adds the user to the organization and sends an email inviting them to create an account and set a password. To learn more about this feature, read the nTopology User Dashboard Guide.
To edit a user, select the edit icon/button to the far right of the user. An Edit User Details window will appear giving the Org. Admin the ability to edit the user:
- Email Address
From the License table overview, the Org. Admin can see an overview of all:
- Active licenses
- In-Use licenses
- Expired licenses
In the table below, the Org Admin can see specific information about each license, such as:
- Start Date
- End Date
- Status (In Use, Not Assigned)
The Org Admin can request more licenses for their organization. To do so, the Org Admin can select the Request New Licenses button in the upper right corner of the License table and specify the number of licenses that their organization would like to receive. Once submitted, the organization's dedicated nTopology Sales Engineer will reach out to inquire about the request. The Org Admin also can renew specific licenses that have expired.
