Step 4: Create an Apigee organization

You're viewing Apigee X documentation.
View Apigee Edge documentation.

An Apigee organization (sometimes referred to as an org) is the top-level container in Apigee. It includes all of your environments and environment groups, users, API proxies, and related resources. For more information, see Understanding organizations.

What you're doing in this step

Now that you've enabled the required APIs, and created the encryption keys, you can create an Apigee organization.

The wizard gives your new organization the same name as your project ID. This ensures that it is globally unique.

Perform the step

To create a new organization in the Apigee provisioning wizard:

  1. In the wizard, click EDIT next to Apigee organization:

    Set up Apigee Subscription > Apigee organization ready

    The Create an Apigee organization view displays:

    Create organization screen

  2. From the Analytics hosting region drop-down list, select the physical location where you want your analytics data stored.

    Where the physical location is one of the following:

    asia-northeast1 asia-south1 australia-southeast1
    us-central1 us-east1 us-west1
    europe-west2 europe-west1

    Choose a region that is geographically close or one that satisfies your organization's storage requirements.

  3. In the Runtime database encryption key ID field, enter the key ID for the application encryption key that you just created in Step 3: Create encryption keys.

    Enter the key ID in the format: projects/PROJECT_ID/locations/APPKEY_LOCATION/keyRings/APPKEY_KEY_RING_NAME/cryptoKeys/APPKEY_KEY_NAME

    For example: projects/apigee-example/locations/us-west1/keyRings/my-app-key-ring/cryptoKeys/my-app-key

    For additional details, see About the Apigee encryption keys.

  4. Click Create Organization.

    Apigee begins the process of creating an organization for your project. The process will take a few minutes.

  5. Apigee displays a spinner next to Apigee organization in the task list while it's creating the organization.

    When Apigee finishes creating your organization, a check mark appears next to the task and an Edit button appears next to the next task in the wizard:
