In prior articles, we’ve covered how to set up a Kloudless account to use custom OAuth keys for users. However, access to the organization’s data and services may not be best served by granting full access to all users. There may be too much data, or sensitive data that can be made more secure by limiting access.
Typically the users setting those access permissions (administrators) have additional tools and access at their fingertips for testing and setting up user accounts. However, that additional level of access also requires a more involved authorization. Kloudless can be configured to provide administrator account access using OAuth for many upstream services. Our documentation can provide additional information on which services are supported.
In order to setup credentials to authenticate administrators, there are additional pieces of information that need to be setup or created. You can find that setup on the Kloudless Credentials page under the ‘Use Your [SERVICE NAME] Keys’ menu. At the bottom of the service’s entry, there is a link that looks like this:
This will then allow you to add administrator credentials to your Kloudless application to allow administrator users to connect and utilize the expanded set of tools available to them. Each upstream service accomplishes this slightly differently, and the Credentials page contains helpful information for properly configuring the application. If you are attempting to setup these credentials and run into any problems, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help to get your admins online and connected!
