Organization Roles

Stacks in the Pulumi Console are grouped by organizations. In order to access the stacks within an organization, a Pulumi user must have a specific role within that organization.

Organization Membership

To become a member of a Pulumi organization, you must be invited by an existing Pulumi organization administrator, or you must submit a request to the administrator for approval. In addition, depending on the Pulumi plans, you must also be a member of the third-party organization or group backing the Pulumi organization.

For example, to become a member of a Pulumi organization backed by a GitLab Group, you must associate a GitLab identity with your Pulumi account, and also be a member of that GitLab group.

Organization Roles

There are several kinds of organization roles a user may be assigned.


A member of a Pulumi organization can be added to teams, and depending on organization settings, may be able to create or delete stacks.


Pulumi organization admins have Admin access to all organization stacks, and can manage organization settings and team memberships.

Organization Settings

A Pulumi organization admin can change the permissions available to members of the organization.

Stack Permissions

Any organization member with the Admin role automatically has Admin permissions for all of the organization’s stacks. Regular organization members are granted the organization’s base permissions instead.

For example, if the organization’s base permissions is Write, then any organization member can update any organization stack.

If the stack permission for all members is None, then organization members must be granted access using teams in order to update, or even view the organization stacks.

Additionally, organization admins can toggle whether organization members can create stacks, whether stack admins can delete stacks, and whether stack admins can move stacks to other organizations.

Team Permissions

Organization admins can toggler whether members have the ability to create teams.
