When you sign up for Bitrise, you create your own individual user account. By itself, having a user account isn’t enough to add apps and run builds. To be able to work on Bitrise, you need at least one of three options:
- Create your own Workspace.
- Get invited to an existing Workspace.
- Get added as an outside contributor to an app’s team.
To sign up for a paid subscription of your own, you need to create your own Workspace.
In Teams vs Workspaces, we discuss the difference between Workspaces and app teams.
Teams vs Workspaces ⚓
The most important concepts to managing apps on Bitrise are:
Teams: They are based on the applications: all users invited to work on a given app which makes up the team of the application. Owners and admins can assign roles on the teams.
Workspaces: They are created by individual users. Workspaces can have an unlimited number of members and can own and control an unlimited amount of apps. Workspaces need their own payment plan: even if the Workspace’s creator is already subscribed to Bitrise, a separate payment plan must be set up for the Workspace itself.
So here’s a quick summary of teams and Workspaces:
|Roles assigned by the app’s admins or owners||No inherent roles: just owners and members|
|Only have access to a single app||Can own and control multiple apps|
