Workspaces and projects#
A workspace is a space inside Neptune where you can manage projects, people, and your subscription.
There are two types of workspace:
- When you create an account, you are assigned an individual workspace with the same name as your username.
- You can create an unlimited number of public and private projects.
- You cannot invite other people to your individual workspace.
- Used for collaboration with other people.
- You can invite as many people as you want to your team workspace.
You can be a member of multiple workspaces. For example:
- Your individual workspace
- A team workspace at work
- A team workspace at the university
Tip for students
For academic purposes or Kaggle competitions, you can use the team workspace for free. Create a team workspace and claim non-profit/educational type of organization during setup.1
For details on team plans, check the pricing page on the Neptune website.
A project typically represents one machine learning task. A project can contain runs, models, model versions, and project-level metadata.
There are three types of project:
- Private projects: Only people assigned to the project can see it.
- Workspace projects: People with access to your workspace can also access these projects.
- Public projects: Freely available to view by anyone on the internet.
To log runs or other data to a project, you need the full project name of the project:
workspace-name/project-name. You can find and copy it in the project Settings → Properties section.
We recommend exporting it as an environment variable in your system, but you can also pass it via the code that initializes Neptune:
- For example, if your workspace name is "ml-team" and project name is "classification":
- Creating a project
- Creating and deleting projects via API
- Help ≫ Workspace read-only mode – what you can do if your workspace enters read-only mode.
- API reference ≫
We suggest you use your ".edu" or non-profit email for this type of account. ↩
