Hello @Catherine Kong

Thank you for reaching out.

Basically, an Atlassian Organization is a centralized feature where you can manage all your users in a single place, even if they are using different sites or products.

That being said, these would be the abilities of each role:

Organization Admin: Can manage the whole organization settings: billing and access to all the information from the products and sites related to the organization under P.S: The organization Admin also includes the Site-admin role.

Site Admin: They administer the users and groups for the site’s products. They have access to the site's Administration and access to the products through this group, however, they are not able to access other sites, billing details, or products related to the whole organization. Basically, it is a lower level of permission, where they are not able to access the whole organization page and settings.

For more details about the information above, you can check the following documentation:
