Snyk has a three-level hierarchy that allows you to control access to reports, policies, notifications and more.
- Group: The highest level. Typically, a group relates to the entire company or business division.
- Org: Organisations can reflect your team structure, products or environments – whatever makes the most sense to you and your teams.
- Projects: Snyk refers to manifest files, configuration files, container images as ‘projects’.
Groups is a Pro and Enterprise Plan feature that makes it easier for you to collaborate with multiple teams. Groups can hold many organizations, and each organization can contain many collaborators.
As well as creating organizations within your enterprise groups, you can also create them within your own personal group. This is ideal if you want to monitor your own personal projects outside of your enterprise’s group, or if you want a sandbox to play with.

An organization groups projects together. Many Pro and Enterprise customers use organizations per team, so each engineering team can see the applications they are working on.
