Business groups are self-contained resource groups that contain MuleSoft Anypoint Platform resources such as applications and APIs. Business groups provide a way to separate and control access to MuleSoft Anypoint Platform resources because users have access only to the business groups in which they have a role. In this article we will discover how to create business groups on MuleSoft CloudHub.

Business groups reside within the master organization. The groups are organized in a hierarchical tree where the top-level business group is the root. Each business group you create has one direct parent and can have multiple children.

Business groups are required when your organization has multiple teams from different departments creating and publishing resources on Mulesoft Cloudhub iPaaS. You don’t want the resources created by one department to be visible to their team and sub department’s teams; for example, the finance department should only have visibility to API’s and exchange resources created by the finance and accounting, not the HR team.

Creating business groups in Mulesoft Cloudhub is pretty straightforward. However, before starting following the below steps, you need to make sure that your user has the organization administrator role, and your organization allows the creation of business groups. Also, business groups are hierarchical; the owner of a parent business group automatically has and retains administrator permissions for any child business group of that parent, even if they make another organization Administrators user owner of a child business group.
