Hi tommym121,

Kindly check this topic :
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg309396.aspx#EntityOwnership

It is from SDK and throws some more light in addition to what feridun has mentioned.
Also check the note written in that topic.

Regards,
Chinmay.

And what condition will you set the ownership of an entity to User or team, Business Unit, Organization or None?

Feridun KadirPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
When you create entities, you choose whether the entity is user/team owned or organization owned.

User/team owned means that records of that entity type can be owned by users or teams whereas organization owned records do not have owners.

You need to consider this in conjunction witht the security model which levels of access. For user/team owned entities you have 5 levels of access in a security role: none, user, business unit, parent: child business unit and organization. For organization owned entities only none and organization levels are available.

The decision on which ownership type to use is one for you and depends on how you want to secure the entity.
