Organizations are groups that tie together users, workspaces, and images. You must assign all of your images and workspaces to a specific organization. An end-user can only access images that are assigned to the same organization they are.

Be sure to familiarize yourself with the types of roles you can assign users within an organization.

The default organization

Coder automatically creates a default organization for you during the deployment process. You can then assign users and their workspaces to that organization.

If you have multiple organizations, you can set one or more as the default; you can also change which organizations are defaults at any time.


Deprecation notice: The namespaceWhitelist field has been deprecated in Coder version 1.17.

Coder's Helm chart previously included a namespaceWhitelist field that accepted a list of cluster namespaces and made them available to Coder. The workspace provider feature supersedes this field.

You will not be able to make any changes unless you are removing namespaces that no longer contain workspaces with Coder deployments v1.17.0 or later (if you remove namespaces from the namespaceWhitelist field, the workspaces in the namespaces are no longer accessible).

For older Coder deployments, you can continue using existing workspaces in whitelisted namespaces, though you cannot create new workspaces in those namespaces.

If you want to separate Coder workspaces by namespaces in a Kubernetes cluster, you can do so by deploying a new workspace provider to each additional namespace in the cluster. The workspace provider provisions workspaces to the namespace it has been deployed to, and you can control access to each workspace provider via an organization allowlist to replace the previous organization namespace behaviors.
