The Aiven Console gives you access to create and manage Aiven services, update your user profile, manage settings across projects, set up billing groups, view invoices, and more. This article provides an overview of the main areas in the Aiven Console:

To access your user information, user authentication settings, and payment options, click the profile icon in the upper right corner of the console.
Name and email#
You can update your name on the User Info tab of the User profile.

In the Payment Options section, you can add or update credit card details, assign projects to a payment method, and update the billing contact.
Organization and organizational unit settings#
The organization or organizational unit that you are currently working with is displayed at the top of the page. You can switch to another organization or organizational unit by clicking the name to open the drop-down menu. You can also create a new organization from this menu.
If you don’t have an organization, click Create organization to create your first organization.
We strongly recommend creating an organization. It makes managing your projects much easier and comes with many additional features, such as teams (user groups), billing groups, and SAML authentication.
Organization and organizational unit settings are available on the Admin page. Here you can:
Create new projects under an organization or organizational unit
View Event logs of activity such as the adding or removing of team members, changing authentication methods, and more
Access the Settings to rename or delete an organization or organizational unit
Projects and services#
To navigate between different projects or view all projects click the Projects drop-down menu. Selecting a project opens the Current services page with a list of all services for that project. Here you see a list of all of your services and create services.
On the Current services page you can also access the integration endpoints, VPCs, project event logs, list of project members, and project settings.
Billing groups let you use billing details across multiple projects and generate a consolidated invoice. Click Billing to see and manage your billing groups.
You can add and update credit cards in the User profile.
