All Ubidots accounts begin with a single App that can be made available to users by way of a default or white-labeled App login portal. Each App in an Ubidots account, includes and follows the below hierarchical structure. 

  1. Admin person who creates and manages the Ubidots Account, its App(s), and its Organizations. 1 Admin possible per Ubidots Account.
  2. App(s) – single IoT solution containing dashboards, alerts, analytics, and organizations containing users with access permission in the form of a role.
  3. Organizations –  different tranches of Users who have access to the data provided by the App, and controlled by the Admin.  
  4. Roles – different authentication groups with designated permissions or restrictions to the tools, features, and data within an Ubidots App.
  5. Usersperson(s) able to view an App's data and engage with Ubidots based on the particular Role that the users has been given.  

Different Apps allow Ubidots Administrators to brand or white-label two, or more, applications to be accessed by different end-users. All Ubidots accounts begin with a single App. To add a second App to your account, please request one in the Apps section of your Ubidots Admin Account
