Before using ScaleFT, the first thing to do is to create a team in the ScaleFT dashboard.
Every team requires a unique team name, and an Identity Provider which ScaleFT can use to authenticate users in your team.
Team names are case-insensitive, alphanumeric, and may contain dots, dashes, and underscores.
Adding a group to your project lets you grant groups of users access to the resources in that project. If you’re just trying ScaleFT out for the first time, you can just use the pre-existing
everyone group, and select the “Admin” option to grant maximum permissions.
Later, when you’ve added servers to the project, and more users have joined your team, configuring projects and groups will allow you fine-grained control of access across your servers.
Install the ScaleFT Agent on one or more servers, and enroll those servers in your Project.
The ScaleFT Agent will automatically configure your servers to trust certificates issued by the ScaleFT Platform as a method to authenticate SSH or RDP users.
You can also configure the agent to create user accounts for the members of your team, and even manage administrative access with ScaleFT roles and permissions.
Have team members install the ScaleFT client and enroll it with ScaleFT.
The recommended SSH integration method uses
ssh proxycommand so users can use
Once installed by the users in your team, the ScaleFT client will connect to the ScaleFT Platform to verify users against your Identity Provider (IdP).
While a team member remains authenticated, the client manages the dynamic credentials that enable that user to authenticate to any resources they may access.
