New icons for visibility scope and private projects

Up to now it was not obvious which VersionEye project is a “private” project. That means a project from a private GitHub or Bitbucket repository. Projects created through the VersionEye API are also considered as private projects. To monitor private projects you need to have a paid subscription. To make the private projects more visible we marked them with a lock icon in the project overview table!

In the example above the first 2 projects are private projects, they are created through the public VersionEye API and that’s why they are marked with the lock icon.

Don’t confuse “private” projects with the visibility scope. By default every project is publicly visible to everybody who knows the project URL. That makes sharing information very easy. But don’t worry your projects are NOT part of the search index, that means it will not pop up in search results! In the project settings you can limit the visibility scope to collaborators only.

That means that your project is only visible to members of your organisation. So if somebody knows the project URL and he/she is not member of your organisation he/she will not be able to see the project report! The projects which have limited their visibility are marked in the project overview with an broken eye, like the last 2 projects in the first image.
