Teamcenter Organization

Organization application enables you to create and maintain your company’s organization within Teamcenter by organizing user accounts and their respective permissions and user groups.

User accounts help to:

  • Track changes to objects.

  • Control access and privileges.

  • Manage default object ownership.

Organization is made of groups. Group contains subgroups, roles, users and person. Organization is an administrative application and used for the following,

  • Viewing information of the organization.

  • Defining Groups, Roles, Users, Person, Volume, Sites, etc.

  • Establish administrative privileges.

  • Defining optional Calendars, Disciplines and Part Libraries.

  • Organization is read-only to non-dba group users unless they have been granted authorization to make modifications by a user with system administration privileges.

Organization Tree:

  • Group is for grouping of users who share data.

  • Subgroup is a group with another group designated as its parent.

  • Role represents specific skills and/or responsibilities. The same roles are typically found in many groups. The system grants data access based on group and role.

  • User can belong to multiple groups and must be assigned to a default group. Each user in the group is assigned a role.

  • Person is a definition containing real-world information about each Teamcenter user, such as name, address, and telephone number.

  • Build the organization tree hierarchy from the top down.

  • Build the organization list tree hierarchy from bottom up.


  • A site describes an individual installation of Teamcenter and comprises a single database, all users accessing that database.

  • When Teamcenter objects are exported, the site ID is used internally by each Teamcenter site to identify itself to other sites.

  • The site name is also used internally and is stored in the database as a user-defined character string.

  • To share data among sites, each Teamcenter database must store a definition of all of the sites in the enterprise.

License Servers:

  • A license server is a process dedicated to tracking license usage by users.

  • It runs on a host machine and port that you specify.

  • Administrator set up multiple license servers to assign different set of users to each license server.


  • A volume is a location where files are stored. A volume equates to a directory on the operating system.

  • Teamcenter retains the volume location (directory) and the file name.

  • Assign volumes to groups and users and define file locations for the organization structure.

  • Users inherently have read access to newly created volumes. However, you must explicitly grant write access to the volume.
