Ops Manager Users and Teams

Overview

To access an Ops Manager organization or the project within that organization, an Ops Manager user must be a member of that organization. Depending on the user’s role in the organization, the Ops Manager user may be required to be a member of the project as well to access a project.

An Ops Manager user can be a member of multiple projects and multiple organizations. If an Ops Manager user is a member of a project, the user’s access to the project is determined by the user’s project role.

Within an organization, you can group users into teams. Users can belong to multiple teams. Teams can be assigned to multiple projects. The team’s project role sets the team members’ access to the project.

Note

Ops Manager users are separate from MongoDB users.

Create Ops Manager Users

If your Ops Manager installation has disabled Invitation Only Mode, users can create accounts using the Ops Manager account registration page without an invite.

Ops Manager projects and organizations are invitation only. Users must receive and accept an invitation from the Ops Manager Application to join a project or organization.
