Coiled helps individuals and teams manage their resources, control costs, and collaborate with one another. Team members can share resources, track usage, and consolidate billing with anyone else on the same account.
Adding team members#
When you sign up for Coiled, an account is automatically created for your user, and the name of the account is the same as your username.
For example, if you sign up with the username
awesome-dev, then the
awesome-dev user is automatically added to an account also named
If you want to work with a team of two or more users, please create an additional team account for your company or organization. You can either reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can do this for you, or you can create an additional account by signing up for Coiled and specifying your organization as the username.
Once your team account is created, you can add users from the Team page in the Coiled web application. After selecting the Add Member button in the upper right, you can choose to enter their username or email:
If you use their email address, the user will then receive an email invitation to sign up for Coiled and join your team. You can see all invitations on the Team page.
On the Billing page, Coiled account admins can see detailed Coiled usage including your credit balance, credits used, and percentage of free credits used.
If you have added a credit card to your account, you will also have visibility into your Coiled bill for the month:
If your usage stays below the amount of free credits, then this value will always show $0 since you don’t have to pay Coiled anything.
For more detailed tracking of your Coiled and cloud provider usage and costs, you can use custom Tags.
Administrators for a Coiled team can set resource limits for team members including:
Coiled credits You can limit the number of Coiled credits used each month for each user or for a team from the Team page. You can, for example, limit your team to spending 2,000 Coiled credits per month, which is much lower than the 10,000 free Coiled credits offered each month, to better control AWS costs.
Team-level vCPUs The number of virtual CPUs that can be running for a team at a given time. If you’d like to change this setting, please reach out to us at email@example.com.
User-level vCPUs The number of virtual CPUs that can be running in a user’s account at a given time. You can set this limit for any user on your team from the Team page.
