Changing the status of an organization (Channel Manager)

Use the Organization Administration Console to change the status of an organization.


  1. Search for your organization.
  2. On the Organizations page, select the check box next to your organization and click Lock/Unlock. The Status page displays.

    Locking an organization prevents only the users who belong to that organization from logging into the system. To prevent other users such as registered customers from accessing the resources owned by a locked organization, you should close or suspend the store before you lock the organization. In addition, the Logon command only checks the ancestors of a user, not the ancestors of the store to which the customer logs on.

  3. Click Lock or Unlock to lock or unlock the organization.
  4. Click OK.
