Team Features

Render helps teams of all sizes collaborate on their shared apps and infrastructure. Team plans also include powerful operational features, such as service autoscaling.

For a full comparison of plan types, see the pricing page.

These features are specific to team plans:

FeatureDescription
ProjectsOrganize your services by their associated application and environment (such as prod or staging).
AutoscalingAutomatically scale services up and down according to their memory and CPU load.
HTTP request logsAutomatically log details for every HTTP request to your web services from the public internet.
Preview environmentsSpin up an ephemeral copy of your entire production environment for safe and comprehensive integration testing.
Performance build pipelineRun builds and other pre-deploy tasks with significantly more memory and CPU.
PostgreSQL point-in-time recoveryIn the event of unexpected data loss, restore your PostgreSQL database to a previous state from within the last seven days.
High availability PostgreSQLRun a standby instance of your PostgreSQL database and fail over to it if your primary instance encounters an issue.

All teams also receive:

  • Increased free monthly allotments of pipeline minutes and bandwidth usage
  • Increased retention of past builds for rollbacks

Teams on an Organization or Enterprise plan receive compliance guarantees (such as SOC 2) and other benefits like uptime and support SLAs. For details, see the pricing page.

  2. Complete the team creation form, including specifying a plan type and payment method. Then click Create Team.

You’re all set! Render automatically assigns you the Admin role for your new team.

Manage team members

Only team members with the Admin role can manage other members.

  1. From your team’s page in the Render Dashboard, click the icon in the top-right corner, then click Team Settings.

  2. Scroll down to the Team members section.

    • To add a team member, click Invite members. Newly added members are assigned the Developer role.
    • To remove a team member, open the ••• menu next to that member and click Remove member.
    • To change a team member’s role, click their current role and select a new one.

Member roles

Team members added before 12 October 2023 have been automatically assigned the Admin role to preserve their capabilities from prior to the release of member roles.

All newly added team members are assigned the Developer role (except a team’s creator, who is assigned Admin).

Each member of a team has one of the following roles:

RoleDescription
AdminHas full access to the team’s resources and organizational settings (such as member management, billing management, and 2FA enforcement).
DeveloperHas access to the team’s resources (services, environment groups, etc.), but not to organizational settings. New team members are assigned this role.

Admins can assign roles to other members from the Team Settings page in the Render Dashboard.

Enforce two-factor auth

Only team members with the Admin role can enable 2FA enforcement.

You can require two-factor authentication (2FA) for all of your team’s members. Enforce 2FA from your Team Settings page:

UI for enabling 2FA

If your team enforces 2FA, team members can’t access the team’s resources and settings until they enable 2FA.

Team members with SSH or API keys can't use these keys to access team resources until they enable 2FA.

Transfer services

When you create your team, the creation form provides an option to Transfer Services to the team. If you select this option, Render moves all services, databases, environment groups, and Blueprint instances from your personal account to your new team.

It is not currently possible to selectively transfer services from a user to a team.
