Manage projects

Kentico Kontent allows you to create and work on multiple projects so that you can better organize your work when working with multiple clients. A project is the primary organizational unit of your content.

Switch between your projects using the project switcher in the top toolbar. You can only manage the projects you have created. Once your project is no longer needed, you can archive it.

    Creating a sample project

    If you want to see a fully-featured project with a website and mobile app, you can create a Sample Project. The Sample Project contains marketing content for Dancing Goat – an imaginary chain of coffee shops.

    2. Click Create complete sample project.
    3. Select a subscription the project will fall under.

    Once you have your own Sample Project, you can use it to run our sample apps or build your own app.

    Archiving projects

    Only subscription admins can archive projects.

    What happens to archived projects?

    When you archive a project, it means that its content cannot be accessed anymore and all Kentico Kontent APIs for that project are disabled.

    Here's a list of the most important things that are disabled after archiving:

    • The Delivery API will be disabled. This may break live applications that retrieve content from the project.
    • All contributors on the project will be deactivated and won’t count towards your current usage (unless some of those contributors are still active in other projects).
    • No one will able to access the project anymore until you activate it again.

    Content items and assets in archived projects don't count towards your usage.

    To archive a project:

    1. Click your initials in the bottom left corner and choose Projects.
    2. On the project card of a specific project, click .
    3. Click Archive.

    Restoring projects

    If you later need to restore an archived project, click Restore project.

    After restoring, make sure to activate contributors who were invited to the project so they can start working on the content again.

    Deleting projects

    If you don't need a project anymore, you can also delete it. It's useful to clean up the growing list of archived projects if you're, for example, cloning your projects for continuous integration purposes or experimenting with different content models.

    When you delete a project, all of its content, settings, and languages are deleted, and all users lose access to it. This action is irreversible.

    To delete a project, follow the instructions for archiving projects, just click Delete instead of Archive at step 3. Then enter the name of the project you're about to delete and click Delete project.
