Every account may contain one or more projects. A project is a container for applications and Application Users, and provides an easy way to share and work with a subset of the resources that exist in an account through Scoping.

Projects are their own scope; every resource may or may not be part of the project scope, which in turn limits visibility of those items to only that project. For more details about scoping, see Scoping.
