Latch Organizations allows administrators to manage multiple workspaces under a single organization. This feature provides a unified interface for viewing workspaces’ billing overview, credit transfers between workspaces and provides organization members with owner-level access to all managed workspaces.

Currently, we only release Latch Organization to select partners who have to manage 5+ workspaces. To gain access to the “Organizations”, please contact our support team at support@latch.bio.

Concepts

Before we dive into the key features of an Organization, it’s important to understand the differences between a Latch Workspace and a Latch Organization.

What is a Latch Workspace?

  • Contains Latch Data, Workflows, Pods and Registry.
  • Contains its own billing and credit balance.
  • Each member within the workspace can perform activities within the workspace, such as adding/ removing data, launching workflow, launching Pods, etc.

Permissions

Within a Latch Workspace, you can be an Admin, Member, or Viewer.

  • Admin: performs administrative tasks within the workspace. Configures billing, adds/ removes members, etc.
  • Member: can use the workspace resources, such as creating pods, running workflows, using Registry, etc.
  • Viewer: can only view the workspace resources but cannot perform any actions.

In addition to the above, Admins can add or remove more fine-grained permissions for each of its Members and Viewers.

What is a Latch Organization?

  • An organization layer on top of Latch Workspace which can own multiple workspaces.
  • Organization members can access all workspaces within the organization with owner permissions.
  • Within an Organization, there’s a workspace overview to observe credit balances of workspaces, transfer credits between workspaces, and see an aggregate billing view of all workspaces across the four Latch Products.

Permissions

Within a Latch Organization, you can be an Admin or a Member.

  • Admin: can perform administrative tasks within the organization such as adding new workspaces, inviting members, etc.
    • Admins have Owner permissions within all workspaces of the organization.
  • Member: can view the organization(see members, billing, etc), and have owner permissions inside of each workspace within the organization.
    • You can assign a default role to a Member within all workspaces of the organization. I.e. you can set a member to be a Viewer or Admin in all workspaces by default.

You can find the list of organizations by clicking on the Avatar in the top left corner of the screen and selecting “Organizations” in the sidebar.
