Manage access for users

Users can use their existing organizational identity to work with Cognite Data Fusion (CDF) and related applications such as Asset Data Insight and Operation Support.

The organizational identities for users are managed in an Identity Provider (IdP) service outside of CDF, for example Microsoft's Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) or another OpenID Connect compliant provider.

Give access to Azure AD users

To allow users to use their Azure AD identity to log in to CDF, you need to connect CDF to Azure AD. Also, you need to link CDF groups to an Azure AD group when you first create them. You can not update an existing CDF group to link it to an Azure AD group.

  1. Follow these steps to Configure CDF to use Azure Active Directory as the Identity Provider.

  2. Follow these steps to Create a group and link it to an Azure AD group.

Users can now navigate to and log in to CDF with their Azure AD username and password.
