An account is an isolated tenant in Decodable, and exists in a single cloud provider and region (although it can connect to data services anywhere). All resources - connections, streams, pipelines and so on - are created within an account.

Accounts have one or more identity provider (IDP) connections which determine from where logins are allowed. The list of users from those IDPs can be further restricted, as can the privileges of those users.

Each account has an account name as well as a display name. The account name is used in API requests and authentication and can not be changed. The display name is a human-friendly name and may be changed at any time.
