Projects and Teams

Use Projects to organize checks in your Healthchecks.io account. Your account initially has a single default project. You can create additional projects and transfer your checks between them as your usage grows.

An overview of projects

Checks and integrations are project-scoped: each check and each configured integration always belongs to a particular project. Checks can be transferred between projects. The transfer operation preserves check's ping address:

Team Access

You can grant your colleagues access to a project by inviting them into the project's team. Each project has its separate team so you can grant access selectively. Inviting team members is more convenient and more secure than sharing a password to a single account.

Team access section

The user who created the project is listed as Owner. When you invite an user to the project, you can select one of the three roles for their membership: Team Member (what you usually want), Manager or Read-only.

Team Members can:

  • create, edit and remove checks
  • create and remove integrations
  • rename the project
  • view and regenerate project's API keys
  • give up their membership (from their Account Settings page)

Team Members can not:

  • invite new members into the project
  • change project's owner
  • manage project owner's billing settings
  • remove the project

Managers have the same permissions as Team Members, with one exception: Managers can invite new members and remove existing members from the project's team. Managers still can not change or remove project's owner, or manage billing.

Read-only members can:

  • view checks, including check details and ping logs
  • view integrations
  • give up their membership

Read-only members can not modify checks, integrations, or project settings. They also cannot access the project's API keys as that would effectively give them read-write access through API.

Projects and Check Limits

Check Limit is the total number of checks your account can have. The specific limit depends on the account's billing plan. When you reach the Check Limit you will not be able to create new checks.

All projects owned by your account shares your account's Check Limit. For example, consider a Business account with two projects, "Project A" and "Project B." If A has 70 checks, then B cannot have more than 30 checks in order to not exceed the Business account's total limit of 100.

However, only checks from your own projects count towards your account's quota. If you get invited to somebody else's project, that does not change the number of checks you can create in your projects.

Projects and Team Size Limits

Team Size is the number of unique users you can invite to your projects. Same as with Check Limit, all projects share your account's Team Size limit. However, if you invite the same user (using the same email address) into multiple projects, it only takes up a single seat.

Projects and Monthly Reports

Healthchecks.io sends periodic email reports with a summary of checks from all your projects. The reports contain status summaries for both the projects you own and the projects you are a member of.

You can configure the frequency of the reports (monthly, on the 1st of every month, or weekly, on Mondays) or turn them off altogether in Account Settings › Email Reports.
