What is a Project?


What is a Project?

Projects are the smallest unit of organization within Kion. They are where you attach your cloud accounts and apply your most specific permissions, enforcements, and policies.

In your organization structure, OUs contain projects and projects contain accounts.

You may attach more than one cloud account to a project, but we recommend keeping a 1:1 ratio between cloud accounts of the same type. Using a 1:1 ratio makes managing permissions simpler, as all permissions are managed at the project level.

Kion projects are different from Google Cloud projects which are added to Kion as accounts. For more information, see Getting Started with Account Management.

Project Financials

Each project may or may not be assigned a project budget. For information about setting up a financial structure in Kion, see Getting Started with Financial Management.

Generally, projects are the best place to set up budget enforcements because they are self-contained. Setting enforcement at the project level gives you the most specific control over your money. For more information, see What is a Financial Enforcement Action?
