Organization structure

An organization structure enables you to organize software and hardware assets based on cost center or department.

A legal entity is a part of the organization that has legal rights and duties related to agreements and contracts, and consequently to licenses and subscriptions. The top level of the company is normally registered as a legal entity. If the organization has multiple legal entities, there can be multiple legal organization nodes.

Nodes that are not legal, typically nodes further down in the organization hierarchy, are referred to as non-legal organization nodes. An organization node that is not a legal entity can not hold an agreement or contract. However, the organization node can still include assets and inherit licenses or agreements from the organization nodes above.

All computers, mobile devices, devices (RDS/Citrix), and users in Snow are attached to a node in the organization hierarchy. License purchases are always registered for a legal organization node but can be allocated to the non-legal organization nodes.
