Project and folders form the workspaces and container structure of LabKey Server. A LabKey Server installation is organized as a folder hierarchy. The top of the hierarchy is called the "site
", the next level of folders are called "projects
". A project corresponds to a team or an area of work and
can contain any number of "folders and subfolders
" underneath to present each collaborating team with precisely the subset of LabKey tools needed.
As containers they divide up the server into different parcels of "real estate" forming the workspaces for arranging resources and collaboration areas. For example, a laboratory installation might create a different project for each grant or investigation the team is working on. Each project might have some users from within the lab and other users from other teams collaborating on the research.
