Add resources to a Project

  1. Verify which project is currently active by looking under Project on the sidebar or the project shown in the upper right hand corner of the portal.
  2. Before creating resources, feel free to switch to the project in which you want to build by clicking the Project dropdown on the sidebar and clicking the project you want to make the active project.
  3. You’re ready to add resources! Check out some of the following articles on creating servers, block storage, and load balancers.
