The customer's initial administrative user creates an organization on PlanetScale. Administrative accounts have the
Organization Administrator role assigned.
Users can be onboarded either manually or using single sign-on. Manual onboarding is handled by the Administrator once they are initially granted access. Users managed via SSO are onboarded once the SSO provider is connected and configured.
PlanetScale Managed requires single sign-on (SSO) for the API and web interface, enabling organizations to manage access through their existing directory services.
You can read more about single sign-on and how to set it up in the PlanetScale single sign-on documentation.
PlanetScale currently supports three different roles inside of organizations:
See the PlanetScale access control documentation for a further breakdown of each role's permissions.
PlanetScale Managed provides integration with numerous single sign-on providers. Users can have entirely separate personal and corporate accounts with PlanetScale when their organization uses SSO.
It is up to the customer to ensure that they maintain their SSO setup and do not invite or allow employees to use any other authentication method to access PlanetScale.
