Authentication and security improvements

IC-2 Security reporting Contentful has recently released several enhancements designed to help you manage access for teams.

Contentful has successfully become a verified, pre-configured SAML-supporting app in the Okta App catalogue. Contentful organizations can now set up SSO even quicker than before. Learn more here.

Users can also now protect their Contentful accounts through two-factor authentication. 2FA verifies users through an authenticator app such as Google Authenticator, Authy, or Duo Mobile. 2FA can be enabled through user settings in the Contentful web app.

And with enhancements to how admins manage roles and permissions for teams, an Org Admin or Owner can now assign space memberships to a team, which is then inherited by every individual user assigned to that team. This makes it easier for organisations to manage and embrace growth, securely and efficiently giving new team members the right level of access from day one.

Tasks

Publishing content in big teams takes brains, brawns, and three dozen emails. Tasks streamline this process by introducing a checklist of steps to be completed before an entry can be published. To keep the team up to date, we notify individual contributors about new tasks assigned to them and original creators about completed assignments.
