As a part of this feature, Nobl9 offers the ability to toggle between organizations easily and securely.

For example, Nobl9 users can leverage this feature to switch between their production and sandbox organizations to experiment with the Nobl9 Platform and their SLOs in a safe environment that doesnโ€™t disrupt their production environment and SLOs.

Switching organizations - rules at glanceโ€‹

The ID of the current organization is stored in the URL that you can check in your browserโ€™s address bar. The following link shows an example of a deep link to the main page of the Service Health dashboard in the production organization:

The org parameter notesโ€‹

  • Deep links without the orgparameter automatically redirect to a default organization, which is individual for every user.
  • When a user has no access to the organization specified with the org parameter, they cannot access the indicated resource.
  • You can switch organizations with deep links.
    For this, replace the value of the org parameter with the required organization ID in the address bar.
  • When you switch organizations with the deep link, and:
    • โ€ข The specified organization doesn't exist, or
      โ€ข You have no access to the specified organization, then
  • You're redirected to the Need permission screen.
    Additionally, you are prompted to select an organization available for you:
    need permission

You canโ€™t migrate SLOs between organizations and retain their historical data.
