Account Management

Getting started

When you first set up your pganalyze account, you will need to follow the installation instructions to integrate your database server.

For improved access control and security, you can set up Single Sign-On (SSO).

Account structure

Accounts in pganalyze are structured into two concepts:

  • Users: identified by their email address or Single Sign-On identity
  • Organizations identified by their name and URL (e.g. /organizations/[org-short-name])

Furthermore, the following relationships exist between Users and Organizations:

  • Users are assigned a role in an organization
  • Users can be members of multiple organizations, unless they are linked to an SSO provider
  • Each role has one or more permissions that may be restricted to a database/server
  • Access to organizations is granted through invites (sent by email or shared through another channel), or by utilizing an SSO provider
  • You cannot remove the last user with the manage permission from an organization

The following sign in methods are supported by pganalyze:

  • Username / password
  • Google Auth (Personal and Google Workspace accounts)
  • SAML 2.0 (Okta, Azure AD & more)
  • LDAP (pganalyze Enterprise Server only)

Managing members and their roles

You can manage which users have access to your organization through the Members settings page:

The roles that can be assigned to users are configured through the Member Roles settings page:

You can then assign roles to each member by clicking on their name in the members list:
