Organizations are used to group and manage projects. Here you can create projects, manage users, access billing and usage information, leverage third party integrations, and apply org-level settings.

Organization ID

An Organization's ID is a unique identifier in UUID format that can be found under the "Organization settings" section of Cypress Cloud. This ID is used frequently by the Support, Success, and Sales teams to reference an Organization.

To locate your Organization's ID, go to "Organization settings" then Organization ID. Click on the clipboard icon to copy the ID for easy sharing with Cypress teams.
