Reviewed on 04 March 2024Published on 10 June 2021

Before you start

To complete the actions presented below, you must have:

  • A Scaleway account logged into the console
  • Owner status or IAM permissions allowing you to perform actions in the intended Organization
  • a Scaleway Project
  1. Click the Projects tab from the Organization Dashboard. A list of your Projects displays.
  2. Click the name of the project you want to edit.
  3. Click the Settings tab.
  4. Click Change Project name. A pop-up appears.
  5. Enter the new name of your Project.
  6. Click Change Project name.

How to change the name of your default Project

Each Scaleway Organization has at least one associated Project. Upon account creation, this Project is called default. The Project name can be changed after account and Organization creation.

It is possible to change the name of your default Project by following the procedure above.

When you change the default name, no changes occur in your configurations. For example, if you have an IAM policy configured with the previous Project name as a scope, it will not change if the Project name changes.

This happens because your configurations use the Project ID as an identifier, rather than the project name.

The default Project always takes on the Organization ID, and does not change when you change the Project name.

The default status cannot be transferred to other Projects.


Make sure you denote exactly which of your Projects is the default one, as it will no longer take on this name to ensure the distinction.
