Access Management Concepts

In this section, learn about Access Management in Armory CD-as-a-Service.

Armory CD-as-a-Service Access Management

Armory CD-as-a-Service uses OIDC to authenticate both user and machine principals and issue short-lived access tokens, which are signed JSON web tokens (JWTs).

The Armory CD-as-a-Service API consumes these access tokens in order to validate that a request has authorization for a given tenant’s resources and operations.

Use the the CD-as-a-Service Console to manage the following:

  • Credentials for machines and scope them for specific permissions and use cases
  • Users
  • OIDC based external identity providers (IdP), such as Okta, Auth0, or OneLogin
