You can create a new project in the organization by creating a project and setting its parent field to the organizationId of the organization.

The following code snippet demonstrates how to create a project in an organization:

    body={
        'project_id': flags.projectId,
        'name': 'My New Project',
        'parent': {
            'type': 'organization',
            'id': flags.organizationId
         }
}).execute()

...

Deleting an Organization resource

The Organization resource is bound to your G Suite account.

If you would simply prefer not to use the Organization resource, we recommend restoring the organization's IAM policy to the original state using the following steps:

  1. Add your domain to the Project Creator and Billing Account Creator roles
  2. Remove all other entries in the organization's IAM policy.

This will allow your users to continue to create projects and billing accounts while allowing the G Suite Super Admin to recover central administration later, if desired.

If in fact you wish to delete your organization and all the resources associated with it, delete your G Suite account.
