How Can I Change My Default and Currently Active Project?

If you are in more than one project, you will notice that an active project is always selected when you login. You can choose which project is chosen as the active project on login by following these steps.

  1. On the dashboard select your account. Notice the Project item in the drop down menu. To temporarily change your active project click on it and then select a different project.
  2. To change the active project that loads when you login, select Settings.
  3. Scroll down until you see the Default Project Behavior Card.  



You can change the default active project here. There are two options:

  1. When you select the Last active project option, the active project is set dynamically every time you sign in. It's set to the project that was active when you last signed out.
  2. If you choose the Default project option, the active project is always set to the project specified in the Default Project Behavior card shown above. 

Each project has its own API Token associated with it. Changing the active project will make the API Token for that project available on the Leap Dashboard.


If you have a project running locally on your machine, you will need to change the API Token in the configuration file in order to use time from a different project. See Interacting with SAPI in the Ocean docs for more information.


When creating a new IDE, the workspace created will use the API Token of the project that is active at the time of creation. In order to use a different API token, you will need to change the active project and create a new workspace using the same Git repository. You may want to save your work to your Git repository and then create the new workspace with the repository after.

You can see which project the workspace is associated with by clicking the expand arrows on the project on the workspaces page.
