Archive a project#

Archiving projects is possible on newer subscription plans. You can't archive projects on the academia plan or on plans that are based on logging hours.

To hide a project without deleting it, you can archive it.

While the project is archived:

  • You cannot view the project contents in the web app (like the experiments table, comparison dashboards, or any other metadata).
  • You cannot add or modify data.
  • It does not count toward possible project limits or quotas.

However, all of the metadata contained within the project remains accessible via API in read-only mode.

Fetching metadata of an archived project in read-only mode
import neptune

run = neptune.init_run(

How do I find the ID?

The Neptune ID is a unique identifier for the run. The Experiments tab displays it in the leftmost column.

In the run structure, the ID is stored in the system namespace (sys).

  • If the run is active, you can obtain its ID with run["sys/id"].fetch(). For example:

    >>> run = neptune.init_run()
    >>> run["sys/id"].fetch()
  • If you set a custom run ID, it's stored at sys/custom_run_id:

    >>> run["sys/custom_run_id"].fetch()

Unarchiving a project#

If your projects quota allows it, you can unarchive a project. Once the project is reactivated, you can log to it normally.

Project-based plans

On older project-based subscription plans, the projects quota is managed by your workspace admin.

If the limit of projects is reached, you need to upgrade your subscription or archive another project first.
