Account Projects Overview

This article provides a general overview of the projects feature and how to manage them.

What is a Project

Projects enable you to pool a set of resources together for better identification and collaboration among teams. Every account gets a beginning project called Default Project. This default project can be renamed, but it cannot be deleted. Projects are a feature on the account, not a product or resource. The project feature itself does not incur a cost, but the resources provisioned within the project might incur costs.

Create a Project

  1. Click Add Project on the left hand side bar.
  2. Fill in the name field with a projection identification, which you can change later.
  3. Fill in the description field for a more detailed explanation on what is contained within this container, which you can change later.
  4. Click Add to create the new project.

Active Project details

  • Provisioned resources are automatically built into the current active project.
  • The active project currently selected is located on the left hand sidebar under Project.
  • After you have created a new project, you can change the active project by clicking the project name in the side bar and clicking the project that you want to make active.
  • You cannot move resources between projects via the Control Panel. If you need to move resources, you can submit a support ticket or rename the project to something that fits your needs.
