Groups, organizations, and users
Feature availability Some functions (such as Groups) are only available on certain plans. See pricing plans for more details.
Snyk has a hierarchy that allows you to control access to features such as reports. This hierarchy is as follows:
  • Group: the highest level; for example, the entire company.
  • Organization: the second level of grouping; for example, your team.
  • Projects: the lowest level for individual projects; for example, a container image.

Typically, a Snyk group represents the entire company or business division.
Groups can contain multiple organizations, allowing you to collaborate with multiple teams.

Organizations are contained in groups. Based on your company requirements, you can define organizations to represent business areas such as teams, products or environments.
Organizations can contain multiple projects. For example, if an organization represents an engineering team, this allows each team to see the applications they are working on.
When you sign up to Snyk using a social login, you have a default organization. Any projects you add appear in this organization by default.
Projects are contained in Organizations.

Snyk provides four different types of members or users:
  • Collaborator
  • Organization administrator
  • Group member
  • Group administrator
For definitions of the associated permissions, see this information on permissions per role.
Feature availability Group administrators and collaborators are available with Business and Enterprise plans. See pricing plans for more details.
