Projects

A Project allows you to organize and compartmentalize your infrastructure, user access and resources. All Organizations start life with a "Default Project". Organization Admins can create as many projects in the Organization as you like.

Important

Only Organization Admins are allowed to create Projects


Overview

Think of a Project as a logical "Isolation Boundary". A Project comprises

  • One or more managed clusters
  • Users
  • Groups
  • Workloads
  • Integration Resources (Registries, Secret Stores and Aggregation Endpoints)

Projects Intro


Create Project

To create a Project

  • Login into Rafay Console as an Organization Admin
  • Select "Projects" under "System" Resources
  • Click on "New Project"
  • Provide a name and description

Once a Project is created, Administrators need to assign "Groups" and/or "Users" to it so that it can be accessed and used.


View Project

Organization Admins can view the list of Projects in the Organization.

List Projects


Switching Projects

Users that are assigned to multiple projects can switch between them easily

The user's current project scope is displayed on the top banner. In the example below, the user is currently in the "Default Project"

Current Project

To switch projects, click on the dropdown in the Projects menu and select the name of the Project you would like to switch to. In the example below, the user has the option to switch to one of the available projects

  • Staging

Update Project

Organization Admins can add/remove Groups or Users from a Project.

Note

It is operationally more practical and sensible to assign Groups to Projects vs managing individual users.

  • Select Project from list
  • Click on "Assign Groups" to select and assign group to Project

Update Groups

Add/Remove Users

  • Select Project from list
  • Click on "Assign Users" to select and assign users to Project

Delete Project

Organization Admins are allowed to Delete a Project as long as there are no resources attached to it.
