Rippling and Common Fate

We were recently featured on Rippling's blog, which discusses how they streamlined AWS access at scale. The blog delves into the integration of the IAM Identity Center with our Just-In-Time access tool, Glide.

Commercial Privileged Access Management

Exciting update! The enterprise version of our open-source privileged access management framework , Glide is set to launch in the first two weeks of December. This version offers hosting options in your preferred cloud environment, and it's compatible with AWS, GCP, PagerDuty, and Slack. Some key features include Just In Time (JIT) access, customizable policies, and unlimited audit retention. We've also streamlined user management with Single Sign-On (SSO) and SCIM.

Granted Updates

In our ongoing commitment to enhancing Granted, we're excited to share the latest updates:

  • Chain flag for Inline Role Assumption: You can now use the new --chain flag to assume another role inline. This feature can be utilized in conjunction with either the --exec option or as part of a regular profile definition.
  • DefaultExportAllEnvVar config: You can now include the DefaultExportAllEnvVar=true configuration in your ~/.granted/config file. This configuration will enable the automatic export of all environment variables by default when credential_process is used.
  • ExportCredsToAWS config: You can also include the ExportCredsToAWS=true configuration in your ~/.granted/config file. This will enable credentials to be exported to ~/.aws/credentials by default.

Kudos to our first-time contributors:
