hello, what means API KEY and prefix when adding a new organization ?

API key is deprecated and is not used anywhere, just leave it empty.

When you create a customer, Headwind MDM automatically adds 3 test devices to his account. However the device number must be globally unique. That's why you are requested for a (device number) prefix when you are adding a customer. The device numbers of the new customer will start with this prefix followed by 001, 002, 003.

For example, if you use "my" as prefix, the device numbers will be my001, my002, my003.

I would recommend to use first letters of the customer name or company as a prefix.

Headwind MDM Community edition doesn't support multi-tenancy. To use a multi-tenant solution, you need to purchase the Enterprise version.
