Organization account

Create a specialized account for your organization to encourage collaboration and manage permissions efficiently. Convert an existing account or create one from scratch.

Warning
The organization account is currently in the closed beta testing stage and available only to users with business or higher subscriptions.
If you are interested in joining the closed beta testing, contact us at support@apify.com.

Apify's organization account allows multiple team members to collaborate on projects. It enables you to manage your team members' permissions and to centralize your billing.

At the same time, a separate organization account means teams no longer have to share the credentials of a single personal account. You can switch between your personal and organization accounts seamlessly in just two clicks.

You can start an organization account in two ways.

  • Convert an existing account into an organization. If your actors and integrations are set up in a personal account, it is probably best to convert that account into an organization. This will preserve all your integrations but means you will need a new personal account.
  • Create a new organization. If you don't have integrations set up yet, or if they are easy to change, you can create a new organization, preserving your personal account.

Create a new organization

Warning: the organization account is under closed beta testing. If you'd like to try it, contact us at support@apify.com.

You can create a new organization by clicking the Create a new organization button under the My organizations tab in your account.

Create a new organization

You can own as many organizations and be a member of as many organizations as you need.

An organization needs its own email account for receiving notifications, invoices, etc. If your email provider supports it, you can set up an email alias, so the organization's emails get redirected to your email address.

Convert an existing account

Warning: when you convert an existing user account into an organization,

  • You will no longer be able to sign in to the converted user account.
  • An organization cannot be converted back to a personal account.
  • When converting or creating the account, you select an owner who will be responsible for setting up the organization.

Before converting your current user account into an organization, make sure you set a username and create a new personal account for the organization's owner.

An organization can't be a member of other organizations. If you want to convert your account to an organization, you'll first need to leave all the organizations you are a part of.

Then, under the Settings tab of the soon-to-be organization account, click the Convert your account to an organization button.

Convert your account to an organization

Next, set the organization's name and designate an owner (this can be your new personal account) who will set up the organization.

And that's it! You will be logged out from your user account (which has become the organization), so you'll need to log in as the organization's owner.

Welcome to your new organization account. For information on adding members and assigning roles, see the Setup page.

Billing

Actor and task runs are billed to the account they are started from. Always make sure you start a run from the correct account to avoid having an organization's runs billed to your personal account.
