Access Analyzer Improvements

The Authress Access Analyzer is our way of giving you the advanced tools you need to answer the complex authorization question you might have.

Questions such as:

  • Does that user really have the correct permission to the resource?
  • What's that user's access right now?
  • What are all the resources the user has access to with this permission?

While these actions are at the forefront of Authress authorization checks and done usually via one of the Authress SDKs, getting answers to these questions directly in the Authress Management Portal, makes it so much easier.

This release includes two new features for the Access Analyzer.

Access Record Source

When a user has access to a resource via an access record, the Access Analyzer now shows that linked access access record as well as the role that granted the access.

Access Check History

After each access check the Authress UI will now save and display these checks to make it easier to see what was just validated. This makes it possible to compare a list of authorization checks for anything that might not be working correctly.
