Organization owners can change the parent of any team. Team maintainers can change a team's parent if they are maintainers in both the child team and the parent team. Team maintainers without maintainer permissions in the child team can request to add a parent or child team. For more information, see "Requesting to add or change a parent team" and "Requesting to add a child team."
Child teams inherit the access permissions of the parent team. For more information on team hierarchies, see "About teams."
- You cannot change a team's parent to a secret team. For more information, see "About teams."
- You cannot nest a parent team beneath one of its child teams.
