My Project - Concepts
Administrator is one of the roles available to members of an Organization. An Administrator has the right to manage and access projects and billing information. They have all the same permissions as an Owner, excluding the right to edit members’ roles, delete members, manage the support plan or delete the organization.
Editor is one of the roles available to members of an Organization. An Editor has the right to create and manage most Organization resources, as well as creating API Keys. They do not have access to billing information nor the right to manage member permissions or alter support plans. Editor members can be granted read access to tickets they did not create, but they do not have writing rights.
Organizations is Scaleway’s Multi-User feature. Every Scaleway account has an associated Organization. An Organization is a resource system, with hierarchically organized accesses and permissions. An Organization can have one or more associated project: the Organization is the root account of each of its projects. Organizations can have one or more members with different roles. Organizations allow you to centrally manage and share resources across multiple accounts depending on the permissions granted by the Owner.
The Organization Dashboard is the display you see when you log in to console.scaleway.com. On this dashboard you can see the name of your Organization, and depending on your role, an overview of your resources and a breakdown of your resource consumption and billing. As you add and use resources, the Organization Dashboard stays up to date.
Project is Scaleway’s resource management feature. Designed to help you organize your infrastructure and cloud services, the feature allows resources to be isolated and grouped into specific projects. Each project has its own credentials. Each Organization has at least one project, called the default project. You can create additional projects as well.
An SSH Key (Secure Shell Key) allows passwordless connection to an Instance. An SSH Key is generated by creating an RSA key pair, consisting of two elements:
- a sensitive identification key, (aka private key) which must be stored securely
- a public key which is uploaded to the Scaleway interface.
The public key is kept in your Scaleway account and transferred to the Instance during the boot process, while the identification key is kept securely on your local computer. When connecting to the Instance via SSH, a trusted connection to the machine is established using the key pair.
