Q: What is an organization?
A: An organization is the place on the Cobalt platform where you and your team can access all the information regarding all aspects of your pentest experience (pentests, reports, assets etc).
Q: How do I add people to my organization?
A: Log in to the platform, click on the People on the left side bar. Add the email address of the person you'd like to add and then select if you would like them to be an owner or a member. Note that only organization owners can add and remove people from the organization and enable SAML. For more information please see our article on adding new users.
Q: What user roles are available?
A: There are two main levels of user roles on the Cobalt platform: organization and individual pentest. On the organization level, both an organization owner and member can view all the pentests, assets and people within the organization. Only an organizational member can add/remove people. A team member (also referred to as a collaborator) is someone who is added to and can only see a specific pentest. For more details please see our article on different user roles.
Q: What is an asset?
A: An asset represents the product and/or aspects of the product you will be testing. Examples include a website, mobile application or an internal network. It is the foundation around which a pentest is built. On the Cobalt platform, an asset serves as a container of information about your product application, where you can track and view how the security posture of the application evolves over time (as seen in the Insights section of the platform).
