A scope is a permission boundary modeled as a container.
There are three types of scopes in Boundary:
A single global scope which is the outermost container;
organizations (orgs) which are contained by the
and projects which are contained by orgs.
Each scope is itself a resource.
Note: Within the software itself and elsewhere in the documentation, Boundary reliably uses "org" instead of "organization". Among other reasons, this removes ambiguity between different regional spellings of the word. It is spelled out here in the domain model for completeness and to ensure its intent is clear.
A scope has the following configurable attributes:
name- (optional) If set, the
namemust be unique within the scope's parent scope.
The following services are relevant to this resource:
