Manage User Access Authorizations

Users can access using the following methods:

When you create a new user, all access methods are authorized by default. Depending on your organization's security policies, you may need to disable certain access methods, for example, disable username and password login to enforce SSO.

Use the Platform API to view, grant, and revoke access authorizations for a user. The following are examples of cURL commands to get a user's existing authorizations and then revoke the authorization for username and password login:

curl -H "X-APIKeys: accessKey=access_key;secretKey=secret_key" -X GET
curl -H "X-APIKeys: accessKey=access_key;secretKey=secret_key" -d '{"api_permitted":true,"password_permitted":false,"saml_permitted":true}' -X PUT
