Creating an Organization

Last modified on September 29, 2022

You can create organizations in SwaggerHub to add API definitions on behalf of an organization.


  • Organizations are billed separately from personal accounts. Every organization requires a paid plan based on the number of users and features you want to use. New organizations start with a free 14-day trial, no credit card is required. After the trial period expires, choose a plan that best suits your organization needs.

  • SwaggerHub On-Premise 1.19.2 and later have a concept of a default organization. The default organization is created automatically during installation or upgrade.

To create a new organization:

  1. In the sidebar on the left, click and select Create New Organization:

  2. Enter organization details:

    Organization details
    • Organization Account Name – Required. A unique ID for your organization. The organization’s APIs will live under


      • 3 to 20 character long
      • Allowed characters: A..Z a..z 0..9 - _ .
      • Case-insensitive
    • Organization Email – Required. This will be your organization’s default billing email unless you specify a different email in the billing details later. This email address will also be used if we ever need to contact your organization.

    • Title – An optional organization title. For example, Acme Inc.

    Note: All these values can be changed later in the organization settings.
  3. Click Add Organization.

Once an organization is created the trial period begins, during which the organization can use all of the features provided by the assigned plan. You can see the plan limits and the remaining trial days on the Plan page in the organization settings. There you can also activate a permanent subscription for the organization. The trial period or paid subscription will be canceled if you delete the organization.
