New Feature: Third-Party Authentication Providers Posted October 25, 2019
One of the nightmares of IT Departments is managing user access to company applications.
Imagine that your company uses Google Docs, Microsoft Teams and Trello for its day to day work. Now imagine you hire a new colleague. You would need to grant access to all of these service providers, individually, and, maybe more important, remove them when he leaves(!).
Now imagine that instead of three services, your company uses ten, and instead of hiring one colleague, you hire five. You see where we’re going with this…
This is one of the reasons Single Sign-In technology was developed, and is also the main reason we’ve decided to adopt it in our platform.
Today we’re glad to introduce our latest feature “Authentication Providers”, that will allow the owner of a subscription to configure and decide which authentication providers to allow in his applications, including Google, Microsoft, LinkedIN, Facebook and OpenID.
Provide options, improve UX
One of the key complications of providing other ways for users to login to your enterprise applications is that it’s impossible to make everyone happy with just one option.
Some prefer to use their Google Account, others love Open ID Connect.. you get the point.
We believe our solution accomodates most of the current user needs by providing a way for the subscription manager to decide what the best login experience should be for his subscription.
With this new feature, developers now have the power to:
- integrate SSO of their own organization;
- integrate with the following authentication services:
How it Works
Adding a new Sign-In option can be summarized in three simple steps:
- Go to Management and “Add new sign-in”
- Configure the desires service(s);
- Restart your subscription;
Yes. It’s that simple.
