Skeddly Introduces Managed Policies Allowing Permissions to be Set by Role

Skeddly has made enhancements to its cloud automation platform. The new feature allows administrators to set permissions for users based on their role within an organization. There are currently six different Skeddly Managed Policies.

The Skeddly platform already supported multiple users, with administrators of the platform able to give multiple individuals access to the company Skeddly account via individual logins. Each user can be allocated a unique username and password and can have their own MFA device.

Now administrators can set up Skeddly Managed Policies for individual users or for specific roles within an organization. The Managed Policies are based on policy access documents, similar to IAM policy access documents.

By default, each user will be set a standard policy which will allow that user to access most of the features in the Skeddly account with the exception of account options, notifications, and billing, which will only be available to the account administrator unless those functions are specifically set for another user or user group.

The other Skeddly Managed Policies are ‘Standard Read Only,’ which will provide read only access to all parts of the platform instead except notifications, billing, and account options.

‘Execute Actions’ gives the user read-only access to actions, credentials, and action execution logs. This setting also includes the ability to execute and cancel actions.

The ‘Full Financial’ setting provides access to the billing and invoice setting, but other parts of the platform are inaccessible.

The top two tiers of the Managed Policies are ‘Full’ and ‘Full Read Only’, which will give the user access to all features of the Skeddly account, with the latter only allowing read only access.

Users are allowed to have multiple Managed Policies set, for example, Full Read Only can be combined with Full Financial. Skeddly plans to add further Managed Policies to the platform based on user feedback and requests.

Skeddly allows additional account users to be added at no extra cost and there is no upper limit on the number of users per Skeddly account. It is not the size of the organization or number of users that dictates pricing, but the actions that are executed.
