Security Settings

Skyvia allows both public and private access to exposed data. Specifying certain user accounts and passwords, you allow access to the exposed data only to authenticated users. Skyvia supports HTTP basic authentication with username and password. It does not support privileges and customizing access rights to different exposed objects.

Public and Private Access to Endpoints

Having created endpoints, you can view their list and information on their security on the OBJECTS page. For this, use either the All tab or the Endpoints tab. Security icons on the right will show what kind of access each endpoint has — public or private. When you click a certain endpoint, you will be transferred to its page. To change security settings, switch to the Model tab.

Endpoint list

Please note that security icons will be displayed only if you select List view or List view with grouping. Information on security settings is not displayed when selecting Grid view or Grid view with grouping.

User Accounts

To manage users for the endpoint, open the endpoint for editing and click Users. The Users dialog box will open.

To add a user, click +Add new, then enter the username and password.

To modify a user, switch to the Model tab and edit his/her username and password.

If you need different users to be able to access different sets of data, you can create different endpoints, exposing these sets of data. If you don’t specify any users, the endpoint data will be publicly available to anyone without authentication.

IP Addresses

Skyvia allows you to limit the IP addresses, from which the data of the endpoint can be accessed. You can specify one or more allowed IP address ranges.

To manage IP addresses for the endpoint, open the endpoint for editing and click IP Addresses. The IP Address dialog box will open.

To add a range of IP addresses, click +Add new, then enter the meaningful range name, enter Start IP and End IP addresses of the range. Access from each of the IP addresses within the range will be allowed. To specify a single IP address, enter the same address for start and end addresses.

If you don’t specify any IP address ranges, the endpoint data will be available from any IP.
