Often, organizations have several people responsible for purchasing and managing software licenses for different units. All of these can purchase licenses under the same company name, but use different email addresses to deliver licenses to.
To reflect this, JetBrains Account provides you with two options for license management:
- Organization profile corresponds to the whole organization and is identified by the organization name.
- Team profile corresponds to an organization unit that can manage licenses independently. Teams are created automatically for each new email address used to purchase licenses for an organization. In this case, the team is initially identified by the licensee’s email address. A team can be also created manually by an administrator of the organization profile.
For more information on the administrator role in team / organization profiles, see Roles and Permissions.
