The projects drop-down in the zeuz control panel (ZCP) top menu lists your projects and their associated environments, for example:
Image: 1 - Projects drop-down in the zeuz control panel showing: 2 - Current environment, 3 - Link to create a new environment for a project, 4 - Project, 5 - environment associated with the INCREDIGHOULS project.
In your zeuz account, you can use an environment to group together a number of allocations. You must create one or more environments for a project, and an environment is only associated with one project. See the projects page for more information.
There are two methods for creating a new environment for a project in the ZCP:
- zeuz automatically creates a new default environment when you create a new project.
- Alternatively, you can use the Environments option in the ZCP top menu, as described below.
