The Lite plan allows only one user Watson Studio. That means that other collaborators in your projects must have their own Watson Studio Lite plans.

The Standard and Enterprise plans include a set number of authorized users, which are project collaborators who have the Admin or Editor role, plus an unlimited number of collaborators who have the Viewer role. You can pay to have more collaborators with the Admin or Editor roles. You adjust the number of authorized users on the Authorized Users page. See Manage authorized users.

A set amount of compute usage is included in each plan. Compute usage is measured in capacity unit hours (CUH). With the Standard and Enterprise plans, you can pay for more compute usage. For details on computing resource allocation and consumption, see Runtime usage.
