Creating or modifying Organization data

Organization data represents a group of people with a common purpose specific to a business. The first step in creating a standard data model for your application is to create an organization. Everything else that you create in the data model belongs to the organization. In BMC Helix Platform Foundation library, you can create primary organizations and sub-organizations or secondary organizations. For more information about the types of Organization data, see Organization data.
