Note: If left disabled, users will still have the option to set up 2-factor authentication. They simply won't be required to. For more information about setting up 2-factor authentication, see Setting up 2-factor authentication.

Login restrictions 

  • Block sessions with rotating IPs - Stops users from logging in if they are using a rotating IP address. To enable, check the box, then click Save in the bottom-right corner.

  • Restrict emails to specific domains - Ensures all users' emails are from approved domains. To enable, check the box, enter the whitelisted domains (hit 'Enter' in between multiple domains to add), and click Save in the bottom-right corner.

  • Restrict logins to specific IPs - Ensures users can only access Cmd from specific IP addresses. To enable, simply check the box, click Add IPs in the top-right corner (use commas to separate multiple IP addresses), press 'Enter' on your keyboard, and click Save in the bottom-right corner.
    Note: Wildcard  *   is accepted.

  • Restrict logins to specific countries - Prevents users from logging in to Cmd from any non-designated countries. To enable, check the box, click where it says 'Select countries' and choose the countries to whitelist. Repeat to add as many countries as you'd like, then click Save in the bottom-right corner.

Web app session timeout
Automatically logs users out of the web app after they have been idle for too long. When enabled, you can choose a length of time (in minutes) after which inactive users will be logged out.

IP risk check
Prevents any user with a high-risk IP address from logging into the web app.

Quick data export
Enables the web app's quick data-export feature. 

Enable SAML
Enables single sign-on (SSO) for the web app.
Note: You can only add one SAML integration to Cmd.

To add your SAML integration to Cmd, you must provide the SSO service with the Cmd SSO URL and provide Cmd with the SSO service's details and X.509 certificate.

The Cmd SSO URL is generated for you when you enable the SAML setting within Cmd. Consult your SSO service provider for the other required details.

For more information on setting up SSO, see the Integrations overview.

Enable SCIM
Enables System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM). Enabling this setting gives you what you'll need to sync server operator user identities from your identity provider of choice (e.g. Azure, OneLogin, Okta etc.)
