Groups, Organizations, and Projects

Snyk has a hierarchy that allows you to control access to features and scans:
  • 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.

Snyk Groups

A Snyk Group represents your entire base of Snyk users.
Groups can contain multiple Snyk Organizations, allowing you to collaborate with multiple teams.

Snyk Organizations

Organizations represent business areas such as teams, products or environments.
Organizations can contain multiple Snyk Projects, allowing your team to see scan details for 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.

Snyk Projects

Snyk Projects are contained in Organizations.
A Snyk Project defines the items that Snyk scans for issues (such as manifest files), along with configuration information defining how to run that scan.
