Scaleway is a complete cloud ecosystem offering a one-stop solution for creating, deploying and scaling your infrastructure. When you create your Scaleway account, you get instant access to the Scaleway console and Scaleway API to effortlessly deploy our products and services.
The Account API currently allows you to manage Projects. Projects are Scaleway's resource management feature. Designed to help you manage your infrastructure and cloud services, you can create multiple Projects within a single Organization. This allows you to group resources into different Projects, providing better resource isolation and organization, which, in turn, leads to improved management efficiency.
It also increases transparency for users since resources in an invoice are grouped into Projects. Additionally, access for each Scaleway product is managed at Project level: this means a user can be granted Project-specific rights without being given full access to all Projects, allowing for more targeted and controlled access. Read our dedicated documentation to learn more about IAM features.
