Users can now use their personal and corporate Google account credentials to sign up and access the Aiven platform through Google OAuth Single Sign-On (SSO), making account management much simpler and efficient.
With over 4 million organizations using G Suite, this was a bit of a no brainer—especially when coupled with the fact that companies are using anywhere from a couple to over 100 applications, depending on company size.
That makes username and password management extremely complex.
Google SSO goes a long way in removing this. But, what’s really cool about supporting it on the Aiven platform is that signing up and logging in can now be handled in a similar way to launching services: with the click of a button.
And we’re not finished, Google SAML is next. So, enjoy your new streamlined process and don’t forget to stay up-to-date with Aiven news by signing up to our changelog and blog RSS feeds or following us on Twitter or LinkedIn.
