SignalFx Developers Guide

Organizations and Teams

All users belong to an organization, and may also belong to one or more teams. The users that belong to an organization are its members; in most cases, users are members of a single organization that they think of as their "SignalFx account".

Evey SignalFx user has a user ID that’s unique across all organizations. Members of an organization also have a member ID that’s specific to that organization.

Users can’t add themselves to an organization. Instead, they need an invitation from a member that has administrative access to the organization. After users join an organization, they can do the following:

  • Submit datapoints to the organization

  • Use the SignalFx web UI to look at organization features

  • Use the SignalFx API to work with organization features

Teams in SignalFx

Teams link members to dashboards and detectors. In addition, teams can be notification targets for detectors, so that some or all team members see alerts and other notification destinations of interest to them. To set a team as a notification target, use a notification of type "Team". You can also send a notification email to one or more teams using a notification of type "TeamEmail".
