Your Organization ID is effectively the name of your account, representing your company in our system. You will need this Organization ID when identifying yourself to us both in the code that you write and any written / spoken communications that you have with us. Once your Organization ID is created and used, it cannot be easily renamed.
Your Organization ID should be a memorable string of letters, numbers, and/or underscores (_). In addition, do not use a Organization ID shorter than 6 characters and longer than 25 characters unless absolutely necessary, avoiding generic words such as web, online, or internet unless accompanied by your company name. Use a Organization ID which is easily and independently identifiable as belonging to your business and is not too complex as to cause confusion if you were to have to read it out loud. If you are registering multiple Organization IDs, we highly recommend that you follow a naming convention that clearly differentiates the purpose of each Organization ID.
Good examples include my_company, mycompany_usd, mycompany_aplatform or mycompany_uk.
Bad examples include 15426_web_487, our_web_store_online or 1545163516.
After your Organization ID is created and used, it cannot be easily renamed.
