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.
Collaborating across roles and departments comes with its own set of challenges, and your CMS shouldn’t get in your way. Our user management page now includes the ability to filter users by roles and spaces, displays last login and SSO status information and includes sorting options. For companies with hundreds of Contentful users, the new User Management API eases the burden of administration by providing a programmatic way to accomplish common administrative tasks.
We have also introduced the concept of teams, found under the organization settings tab. The team view allows administrators to create teams and add or remove users. Regular users have read-only access to a team view, designed to help them discover the teams they belong to and the peers they collaborate with inside the space. These features are currently in alpha mode, with more functionality expected in the near future.
