Through our ongoing efforts to make the Authress Management Portal easier to use, nicer to use, prettier to use. We've introduced the following improvements.
User Explorer Icons
Until now, when one of your users had a
picture claim associated with their user identity, it would not show in the portal. Now all safe user icons will be automatically displayed.
Profile pictures will be displayed if the images for the user are sourced from one of the following locations:
- Secure Gravatar
- Slack Avatars
- Authress identity pictures
There are more coming to this list. However, not all pictures will be automatically shown. This is because not all image hosting locations are secure, and if a malicious image is uploaded to that location, and isn't validated, showing it to you in the management portal creates an attack surface. For this reason, be careful of media platforms that allow users images to be shown to you without taking the necessary security precautions. If there is a source location you would like added to this list and we can verify that provider is taking the necessarily precautions with shared images, it will be added.
Access Record Resource Hints
Access Records resources dropdown will now dynamically populated with suggested resources. This makes it easier to filter and find the resource URI that are looking for. It also helps to avoid potentially guessing when the resource isn't present.
Just as environment were displayed before, now all Authress related resource tags will be visible in the portal as well.
