The project is the resource management unit in Log Service and is used to isolate and control resources.  You can manage all the logs and the related log sources of an application by using projects. Projects manage the information of all your Logstores and the log collection machine configuration, and serve as the portals where you can access the Log Service resources.

Specifically, projects provide the following functions:
  • Projects help you organize and manage different Logstores.  In actual use, you might use Log Service to centrally collect and store the logs of the different projects, products, or environments.  You can classify different logs for management in different projects to facilitate subsequent usage, export, or index of logs.  In addition, projects are the carriers of the log access permission management.
  • Projects serve as the portals where you can access the Log Service resources.  Log Service allocates a unique access point for each created project.  The access point supports writing, reading, and managing logs by using the network.
