Teams Overview

Teams are useful for project leaders and business owners who want to share control of server infrastructure with developers, financial administrators, and other collaborators.

You can create multiple teams and there is no limit to the number of members a team can have. Each team is billed separately and has its own payment information.


Team members can have one of two roles: admin or member. Roles determine a user’s level of access to a team’s shared resources, billing information, and settings.

API keys are unique to the members who generated them. They can be generated by individual members, regardless of their role, but can be rovoked by a team administrator.

Single Sign-On (SSO)

Paperspace SAML-based Single Sign-On for authentication. Learn more about SSO here.

Email Communication from Paperspace

Emails that are sent exclusively to the team admins include:

  • Operational alerts and maintenance notices
  • Resource alerts e.g. billing alert policiy notifications
  • Emergency migration or reboot notices
  • Receipts for upfront charges
  • Invoices

Additionally, some team emails are sent only to specific members:

  • Machine password emails are sent to the member that created the related machine.
  • Support ticket emails are sent to members who participated in the support ticket.
  • Quota increase approvals

Your Team Namespace

Like personal accounts, each team has a unique namespace. All resources belonging to this team will be organized under this namespace. Among other things, namespaces allows you to share a link to a CORE or Gradient resource that will be directed to the appropriate team and resource.

Your team namespace is a unique string that must meet the following structure:

  • May only contain lowercase alphanumeric characters or hyphens.
  • Cannot have multiple consecutive hyphens.
  • Cannot begin or end with a hyphen.
  • Must be a maximum of 39 characters.

Your Team Profile

Under the Profile tab, you can manage your team namespace, profile photo, bio, location, and website. Other than your namespace, these fields are optional.

Team Quota (Service Limits)

Certain items within Paperspace are governed by Service Limits. These limits are visible on the Billing tab of the console. If you need to increase a Service Limit, please submit a support ticket and select Service Limits Increase from the drop-down. Please tell us a little about how you're using Paperspace and how many machines you require so we can process your request effectively.


When creating Core machines, you may be asked to verify your account which is distinct from Service Limits. Learn more here.

Notes on Team Management

  • Removing a member from a team removes their access to the console and API but does not remove their access to machines via SSH keys or other credentials. This is because Paperspace does not manage the contents of machines after creation. You must revoke credentials from multi-user machines independently.
  • Google OAuth and GitHub OAuth are accepted for secure sign-in, but we currently do not detect or enforce 2FA for these sign-in methods.

How to Create a Team

To start building a team, log in to your Paperspace account. If you haven't already added a Team, you're signed in to your Private Workspace by default.

Click the team dropdown at the top of the console and select "Manage teams."

Click the Create Team button, and give your new Team a name and namespace:
