Requestable Organizations

By default, a user can only make requests on behalf of organizations that they are specifically associated with. If you prefer, you can loosen this restriction and make any or all organizations available for any user making a new request by setting the Requestable flag on the organization.

To mark an organization as requestable:

  1. From the list of organizations, check the box next to the organization. You can select more than one organization for this operation.
  2. Choose Requestable > Yes from the menu that appears above the list of resources.  Choosing No removes the Requestable flag from the selected organizations.
