For our system management, it would be nice if we could create sub organizations.
Our site would like something similar to:
- Data creation
- Data processing
As the data creation systems are managed by totally separate people from the data processing team.

Any news about this feature? It would be great If nested organizations can be used too within katello. From my point of view it's a mandatory feature if someone plans to use katello in bigger environments. Any chance to get this on the next katello roadmap?

Notes from RFC (https://community.theforeman.org/t/rfc-adding-katello-to-a-foreman-install/18060) upstream discussing possible solutions:
Katello does not support nested organizations, not only disabling them but throwing an error if they are enabled. The reason for this is the way that Katello maps Foreman organizations to Candlepin organizations one to one. Object scoping in Katello is locked to an organization. Manifest's and subscriptions are tied to a single organization. Some possible solutions:
1) Mark organizations as "subscription" organizations and only allow certain operations on those organizations; or root organization is the only one tied to a Candlepin organization
2) Drop nested organizations all together from Foreman
3) Allow any organization to import a manifest but scope the subscriptions to only that organization; sub-orgs would not see parent subscriptions
