  2. Name the new Workspace.

    Name the New Workspace

    ⚠️ WARNING: Each Workspace name should be unique, regardless of letter case. For example, naming one Workspace “Payments” and another one “payments” will create two different workspaces that look identical.

    ⚠️ WARNING: Do not name Workspaces the same as these major routes in Kong Manager:

     • Admins
     • APIs
     • Certificates
     • Consumers
     • Plugins
     • Portal
     • Routes
     • Services
     • SNIs
     • Upstreams
     • Vitals
  3. Select a color or avatar to make each Workspace easier to distinguish, or accept the default color.

    Select Workspace Color

  4. Click the “Create New Workspace” button. Upon creation, the application will navigate to the new Workspace’s “Dashboard” page.

How to Update or Delete a Workspace

  2. At the top right, click the “Settings” button.

  3. Edit or delete the Workspace.

To navigate between Workspaces, from the “Overview” page, click on any Workspace displayed beneath the Vitals chart. The list of Workspaces may be rendered as cards or a table, depending on preference.

If a Role does not have permission to access entire endpoints, the user assigned to the Role will not be able to see the related navigation links.
