If you have a video that you want to restrict to members of your organisation, you can make that video private. If you do, it requires a valid cookie or JSON Web Token to access it. Using a JWT gives you more control. For example you could enter the IP address(es) of your corporate network, then only requests originating from those addresses would be permitted to load the video player.
If you have many employees, you will want to manage their authentication from one central location. This provides more convenience for your users too, as it means they do not have to remember an additional password to use our platform.
We support single sign-on using Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0: the industry-standard method for exchanging authentication data. If you are using a commercial identity provider such as Centrify or PingIdentity, they support authenticating using SAML as standard.
We also support authentication using Microsoft’s Active Directory (AD). If you have the AD FS role installed on your server, that provides a way to authenticate users against their Active Directory credentials using a web-login.
You can find out how to configure your account by reading the articles we have written in our support section: How do I configure single sign-on (using SAML)? and How do I configure single sign-on (using ADFS)?. It can be quite a complicated process - particularly configuring AD FS - and so please contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions.
Signing in using SSO will set a cookie. And so our embed code will see that, meaning your viewers can watch your private videos.
Each time a user makes a change to your content, we record it.
We show who made the change, which item was edited, and when.
You can control what each user is permitted to do by assigning them a role. A role contains a defined list of permissions. These work on the basis of “denied-unless-permitted”, so if a role does not expressly include support for an action, it will be denied if the user attempts it. We provide a range of roles that covers most common usage however if you need a custom one, please get in touch.
