Add an organization

Create a sub-organization in the parent organizations individually, or add a sub-organization by synchronizing organizations with the Active Directory (AD)/Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) system.

To add a sub-organization, complete the following steps:

  1. Navigate to Organization.
  2. On the “Organization” page, click Add.
  3. On the “Add Organization” page, enter the following user information:
    • Parent Organization—Select the parent organization to add a sub-organization to.
    • Inheritable Profile—Displays the profiles inherited with the parent organization. If there is no inheritable profiles, “None” is displayed.
      NOTE—The applications assigned to the parent organization are note inherited.
    • Code—Enter a new organization code that complies with the organization format.
      NOTE—Once the organization code is saved, you cannot change it.
    • Name—Enter a new organization name.
    • AD/LDAP Sync—Allow the creating of organizations from the AD/LDAP system. If AD/LDAPSync is selected, the existing organization information—including its sub-organizations—is synchronized from the AD/LDAP system and registered to the admin portal.
      NOTE— To create AD/LDAP organizations, you must connect AD/LDAP directory services with Knox Manage and add a sync service. For more information about adding a sync services, see Adding sync services.
    • License—Select the license type to be used for this organization—Knox Suite or Knox Manage. Select Knox Suite if you have a Knox Suite license and you want to use the same license to enroll this organization’s devices to other Knox services included in Knox Suite.
      NOTE— With a Knox Suite license, only one license seat is consumed by each device (IMEI) regardless of how many Knox services (in Knox Suite) that device is enrolled in.
    • Android Manage Type—Select the Android enrollment type between Android Legacy and Android Enterprise. If you select the Android Enterprise type, then you can also select whether to apply a Fully Managed with Work Profile profile type to the device.
    • Sub-Administrator—Select the administrators to manage the organization. If you log in to the Admin Portal for the first time as a super administrator, there are no sub-administrators registered to the Admin Portal. For more information on creating sub-administrators, see Adding an administrator.
  4. Click Save & Assign, and in the “Save & Assign” window, click Application, Profile, or Content to select what to assign to the organization.
    • Application—Select the applications to assign to the organization, and then modify the application settings.
    • Profile—Select the profiles to assign to the organization, and then view the selected profile details.
    • Content—Select the content to assign to the organization.
    • Click Save to register the organization.
