Getting Started

The control plane offers a user-friendly authorization management interface to the build.security platform. that dramatically simplifies the process of building and managing your organization's authorization policies. build.security significantly reduces development time and allows organizations to create authorization policies without writing a single line of code.

Basic build.security Tasks

The build.security workflow is based on a few basic steps including:

Configuration

After you log into the platform, you will need to configure some basic elements in the build.security interface, including:

In certain scenarios, upon logging in, a user might automatically enter directly into the control plane of a specific project and not have an option to create. select or move between projects.

Policy Management

  • Defining and publishing a policy which expresses your authorization requirements for allowing or denying your users access to your resources

  • Building an authorization policy

  • Publishing an authorization policy

At any time, you may decide to add additional policies or change existing ones. Finally, build.security enables you to log authorization decisions, centrally collect them and then view / forward them.

In addition, using the Monitored status option for a policy item, you can analyze the impact that a policy item would have on the authorization decision, without actually activating it.
