SFTP Gateway OIDC login capabilities for admins have arrived with v3.4.0


SFTP Gateway v3.4.0 is here and we have big news for admins.

You can now log in to the SFTP Gateway web admin portal using any identity provider that supports OIDC, including the major cloud providers, like AWS, Azure and Google Cloud. Log in with whatever service you are currently using to manage all of your existing users, which means you don’t need to recreate user accounts all over again.

How the OIDC login for SFTP Gateway 3.4.0 works

Version 3.4.0 comes with OIDC (OpenID Connect) login for Admin Web UI capabilities, allowing you to configure multiple External Identity Providers to allow OIDC login.

OIDC is a protocol for authenticating users. It defines a standard for sending authentication information, such as a user’s name and profile picture, from an identity provider to a client application.

SFTP Gateway supports the OIDC specification for user authentication. This way, external identities are able to log into the SFTP Gateway web admin portal using credentials from OIDC providers like Azure Active Directory, Amazon Cognito or Google Cloud.

How to Integrate OIDC logins for SFTP Gateway

There is some setup required at the Identity Provider to allow external applications, like SFTP Gateway, to use their service for authentication. 

Our team has made this easy to follow with step-by-step instructions for each of the cloud platforms where SFTP Gateway is available: AWS, Azure and Google Cloud. They’ve also created a YouTube video for each scenario.
