An organization on the SingularityNet platform is a logical entity that groups together various services and the set of identities that can work on these services. The first step to setting up a service on the platform is to create an organization. All metadata that is common across services is stored at an organization level.
The key attributes of an organization are
- This is an ethereum identity that represents the owner of the organization.
- The user with this identity has complete control of the organization and services under the organization.
- The user with this identity has alone can delete the organization from the SingularityNet platform
- The user with this identity can transfer ownership to another user
- These are a set of ethereum identities that can create and manage services
- This enables the organization owner to include additional team members to collaborate on the different services
- Users with this identity have complete control over all services but not on the organization
- Groups provide a mechanism of having multiple instances of a service in a geographically distributed manner
- All service metadata can be managed at a group level
- A group very roughly maps to a region in AWS but unlike in AWS is not a pre-determined list. Service owners can define the number of groups that they want
- Payment Storage
- We use etcd for our payment storage which is defined at a group level
- Refer to etcd-setup on how to set up an etcd cluster
- Payment Address
- This is an ethereum identity to which all payments will be processed.
- This is defined at a group level
- The user that has this identity alone can withdraw funds from this wallet
- NOTE: This address does not need to be a member of the organization
- Images for the Organization.
- These images will be displayed on the SingularityNet Marketplace DApp
- Different contact details of the organization
