Powering content management and operations for the enterprise means supporting the needs of editors and developers, while enabling them to seamlessly work, collaborate and leverage content effectively. It also means ensuring it is possible to scale these workflows to different lines of business, teams and employees, while remaining compliant and avoiding compromising security but at the same time not introducing friction for users.
As Sanity is used in more areas and lines of business in your organization, new teams start new projects, but employees across the organization may still require access. Creating accounts and assigning roles one by one becomes cumbersome, error-prone, and ultimately introduces friction that slows down users and projects. More importantly, ensuring these users have and keep the right access and permissions through time becomes even more difficult.
We’re releasing a major improvement to our SAML/SSO integration capability, to enable automatic granting of project access and roles to users logging-in through SSO, based on declarative rules. With this new functionality, your organization’s users can onboard into Sanity by just logging-in with their corporate credentials and start working immediately, right in the appropriate projects and with the right role. At the same time, you can be sure users always have the right access and permissions across projects, without manual and error-prone work.
With Enterprise SSO enabled, employees in your organization can securely log in to your Sanity projects using their corporate identity credentials, and instantly get started working on content, with the right project access and role.
Sanity admins can define declarative rules that determine the projects and the roles a user receives when onboarding (first time they log-in to Sanity through SSO), or on every log-in (ensuring roles and project access is always up-to-date). Rules leverage the “group membership” meta-data field of the user’s record in the corporate identity provider, and support regular expressions to allow both simple and sophisticated cases.
Declarative mapping rules can be configured to be applied upon every log-in of a user, ensuring its project access and roles stay in-sync with the latest user meta-data in the identity provider - for example, ensuring a user removed from a group or offboarded from the corporate identity provider automatically loses previously granted project access and roles. When using this model, a user’s project access and role cannot be modified manually to ensure consistency.
This enhances our robust set of enterprise capabilities, complementing custom CDN domains, dedicated infrastructure and detailed audit logging. Together, these enable you and your organization to leverage structured content at scale while meeting the compliance, security and operational demands of the enterprise.
