Organizations and Projects

On this page


Atlas provides a new organizations and projects hierarchy to facilitate the management of your Atlas clusters. Groups are now known as Projects. You can put multiple Projects under an Organization.


In the organizations and projects hierarchy, an organization can contain multiple projects (previously referred to as groups). Under this structure, you can:

  • Use the same billing settings across multiple projects in your organization.
  • View all projects within an organization.

Previously, users managed deployments by groups, where each group was managed separately even if a user belonged multiple groups.

Groups are now projects.

Existing Groups

If you have existing groups, organizations have been automatically created for your groups (now projects), and your groups have been placed under these organizations.

If your groups share the same billing settings, they have been placed in the same organization.


Clusters are now associated with projects. As before, clusters must have unique names within projects.
