Add projects and assign users for Tanzu Hub

Projects allow you manage permissions for users so that they have one set of permissions for resources associated with one project but different permissions in another project.

You can create projects in Tanzu Hub or in the VMware Cloud Services Console. In the console, you can assign users but you cannot associate resources. In Tanzu Hub, you can assign users and resources. Adding projects in Tanzu Hub is more efficient.

When you log in to Tanzu Hub, you only see the projects to which you are assigned. You can change between projects from the drop-down Context list in the header. When you switch between projects, you only see the resources that are assigned to that project.


You cannot switch between projects when you are using Insights.
