Organizational Accounts

CodeScene allows the owner of your organization to create a CodeScene account connected to your GitHub organization. You can then use one payment method (= credit card) for the whole organization and let other users in the organization join for free.

That is, any member of your GitHub organization can be invited by the owner. Members don’t need to subscribe to paid CodeScene accounts to analyze private repositories owned by the organization. Organizational accounts lets you share all analysis configurations and results with members of your organization.

Create an Organizational Account

Note: To create an organizational account, you need to be an owner of corresponding GitHub organization.

When you sign up in CodeScene you get an individual account. To connect an organization, you go to your account settings:

Access your account

On your account, you’ll see a link that lets you create an organizational account:

Create your organizational account

Click on the link to create a new organizational account. CodeScene will present a dropdown with all GitHub organizations you own.

Create a new organizational account.

Select the organization you’re interested in, and press Create Org Account. Your account page will now show both your individual account as well as the freshly created organizational account:

Organizational account overview.

You current account will be set to the new organizational account automatically. You can switch between your personal account and the organizational account using the preceding dialog.

Invite Members to your Organization

Once you have an organizational account you can invite other CodeScene users to give them shared access to your CodeScene analyses:

Invite members to your organization.

Members can be invited as “admins” or plain “members”:

  • Members can view existing analyses results as well as run new analyses. They can’t update projects configurations.
  • Admins can create new projects, update projects configurations, delete existing projects and invite other organization members. Hence, any admin (not just the owner) can invite other members to keep the operational costs low by distributing the responsibilities to a group of people.

How does Organizational Accounts compare to Project Collaborators?

CodeScene also supports a “Collaborators” feature. Collaborators is different from organizational accounts and is a per project mechanism. That is, if you have an individual account, you can invite people to join on specific CodeScene projects. The collaborators feature is described in Project Access Management - Collaborators.
