Managing Admins

Is there a good way to manage Admins for multiple Organizations?  It gets a little time consuming to go through multiple organizations every time we hire a new engineer or one decides to leave the company.

Hi @Jwiley78 ,

 

Not that I’m aware of for multiple orgs.  The organisation admins have full rights for all networks within the organisation.  Whereas a network administrator only has rights to the particular network it has been assigned.

That's what I was afraid of.  Just have to do it the manual way to get it up to date and then hopefully I can get everything up to date and then try to find a good strategy to keep it up to date after that.

Could be way of automating via API?

You'll want to use SAML for this.

Examples of SAML providers are the Duo Access Gateway and Azure AD (Azure AD is a horrible SAML gateway though ...).

I'll have to look into this one.  Do you know if you can us SAML and local users together or is one or the other?

You can use both at the same time.

 

Typically customers have local user accounts, and the MSP uses SAML.

@PhilipDAth is correct on SAML. That would be the easiest way. I just finished setting up some new SAML roles today using G Suite as the IDP. It worked quite well with the new SAML camera roles as well as traditional administrator access.
