Set up Directory

Add users so they can authenticate and access private resources.

  • Updated on Jan 10, 2024

Identity Provider integration is only supported in Business and Enterprise editions. Organizations leveraging the Team Edition have access to create local users. Visit the product editions page on our corporate site for details on features and pricing.

Local User Management

Banyan provides the ability to add and manage local users and groups.

To add local users, navigate to Directory > Users, and select Add User.

Your team members will receive instructions to download the Banyan app, register their devices and access the services you have published.

Configuring your org’s IDP in Sign-on Settings

Once admins configure Sign-on Settings to use their org’s existing IDP on login, all Banyan admins are converted into local admins (i.e., admins local to your environment/org).

To convert from Banyan admin to local admin, select Confirm in the one-time pop-up modal in Admin Sign-On Settings.

Identity Provider Integration and Single Sign On

Banyan integrates with your Identity Provider (IDP) so your end users can be authenticated using Enterprise Single Sign-On (SSO).

Banyan secures user identity data and simplifies the user experience by automating User identity lifecycle management: Banyan’s IDP integrations allow for Just-In-Time (JIT) provisioning of User accounts, as well as Group and Role information updating upon login. Updates to the User directory or IDP are reflected in Banyan with each new login, allowing for changes in Users’ authorization without requiring admins to make any manual changes to Roles or Access policies.

Banyan handles Admins and Users completely separately.

  • Admins manage access control security policies via the Banyan Command Center web console and API. To manage admins, refer to the articles on managing the Banyan Command Center.

  • Users use their Devices to access Services that are secured by Banyan’s enforcement components.

Select your IDP from the list below for detailed instructions on how to set up the integration:
