Organize developers and assign permissions to improve efficiency and compliance


Organize developers into working groups, implement policies across entire environments, and quickly onboard new users while ensuring compliance. Role-Based Access Control and Workspaces allow users to assign administrative privileges and easily grant or limit access privileges to individual users and consumers, entire teams, partner companies, and environments across the Kong platform. LDAP and OIDC integrations allow federating with your preferred identity provider.

“As we evaluated API platforms, it was critical that the vendor we chose could simultaneously support our existing services in the public cloud with what we are building in Kubernetes. Kong offered us the ability to unify services across clouds, which gave us the flexibility to build new services iteratively and how we wanted without fear of cloud lock-in.”
