Create a New Project

You can create a project by clicking on the New button in the Projects box. This will pop-up a dialog, in which you enter the project name, an optional description, and select an optional set of services to be used in the project. You can also select an initial set of members for the project, who will be given the role of Data Scientist in the project. Member roles can later be updated in the Project settings by the project owner or a member with the data owner role. A valid project name can only contain characters a-z, A-Z, 0-9 and special characters ‘_’ and ‘.’ but not ‘__’ (double underscore). There are also reserved words that are not allowed in project names. A complete list of reserved words can be found in section Project name reserved words.

As soon as you have created a new project and click on it on the Projects box, you will see the project main page as illustrated in the picture below.
