July 23, 2022

What’s New

  • For enhanced security, Access Management might ask users to re-authenticate before they can modify their email addresses. Similarly, Access Management might ask organization administrators to re-authenticate before they can modify their organization users’ email addresses. This change prevents bad actors from taking advantage of stale browser sessions.

  • User accounts that are added to an existing organization must configure multi-factor authentication (MFA).

April 29, 2022

What’s New

  • When you create a new organization, multi-factor authentication (MFA) is enabled by default. While it is best to use the Connected Apps feature instead of service accounts, an organization administrator can add service accounts or other user accounts without MFA to an exemption list.

  • You can now check the retention period for your organization’s audit logs using the Audit Logging API.

February 21, 2022

What’s New

  • You can now configure Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) as a client provider. As your client provider, Azure AD provides a stateless microservice to convert OAuth 2.0 client application registration requests to requests supported by Azure AD. Additionally, configuring Azure AD as a client provider enables you to authenticate and and authorize existing API consumers.

January 14, 2022

What’s New

  • When you configure the Issuer field while adding a client provider, such as Okta, that is compatible with this spec, metadata from $ISSUER/.well-known/oauth-authorization-server is discovered and validated prior to merging. Once the validation is complete, a complete list of available grant types appears. If you want to fetch metadata for validation for an existing client provider, save that client provider again, and the validation occurs automatically.
    This change makes the client provider registration process smoother for Okta users. Additionally, this change also enables the use of the Client Credentials grant type.

  • When you use dynamic client registration to configure a client provider, you can now configure the length of time at which a client provider times out. The minimum timeout value is five seconds, and the maximum value is 20 seconds.

November 3, 2021

What’s New

  • Organization administrators can now configure up to 25 SAML 2.0 or OpenID Connect identity providers (IdPs) for single sign-on.

  • To support multiple external IdPs, there are new endpoints available for the Access Management API; existing identity provider configurations are unaffected.

September 8, 2021

What’s New

  • In Organization settings and Runtime Manager subscription information, the name of VPN counter is now Network Connections. The Network Connections setting enables you to allocate your VPN connections and AWS Transit Gateway attachments in your organization.

August 5, 2021

What’s New

  • Users who have not enabled multi-factor authentication (MFA) will be prompted to enable MFA weekly until they enable it. While MuleSoft recommends enabling MFA on all user accounts (preferably by requiring it for the entire organization), using MFA is still optional.

June 10, 2021

The Teams feature provides improved user and permission management. Teams provides user grouping mechanisms in Anypoint Platform, which streamlines collaboration, reuse, and scalability. Use teams to:

  • Manage users and permissions across multiple business groups

  • Define permissions and then assign them to multiple users in one click

  • Set global permissions (for example, give everyone in your organization the Exchange Viewer permission)

  • Share Exchange assets with a specific group of users

Additionally, the Access Management navigation menu and user interface have been revamped to simplify navigation and permission management across business groups.

Enhancements and updates are available on an opt-in basis. You can continue using old views after the Teams feature and user interface enhancement release.

January 20, 2021

When you change your password, you can no longer reuse your previous three passwords.

December 15, 2020

If you are using an external identity provider, such as Okta or Salesforce, you can now map users in a federated organization’s OpenID Connect (OIDC) groups to roles in Anypoint Platform.

October 29, 2020

  • You can now enable multi-factor authentication (MFA) as a sign-in requirement across your entire organization.

    MFA makes logging in to Anypoint Platform more secure.

  • You can now easily rotate SAML 2.0 SSO keys. You can generate a key or upload an existing public/private key pair.

June 29, 2020

You can now import SAML 2.0 metadata to configure your identity provider with Anypoint Platform.

June 13, 2020

You can now export service provider SAML 2.0 metadata to configure Anypoint Platform with your identity provider.

May 30, 2020

These are the enhancements and new features for Access Management.

  • Organization administrators can configure whether SAML SSO can be initiated by Anypoint Platform (service provider-initiated SSO), their external identity provider (identity provider-initiated SSO), or both.

  • You can now log in using SSO from the Anypoint Platform login page via your organization’s domain. This domain is available on your user profile page.

  • When the permission scopes change for an approved connected app, an organization administrator must approve the new set of scopes.

January 24, 2020

Anypoint Platform now includes an External Access feature that serves as the foundation for improved cross-organization collaboration such as the sharing of assets.

October 18, 2019

This release of Access Management provides increased security and development capabilities via the Connected Apps feature.

The Connected Apps feature enables you to delegate access to apps without sharing sensitive credentials or giving third parties full control of their accounts. You can audit the app’s use of data, and you can revoke access anytime.

With this release, developers can create apps that use a Sign in with Anypoint Platform widget. When users interact with this widget, they can authorize apps to access their Anypoint Platform information.

Actions taken by apps are audited. Note that some products do not currently include client IDs in this release of the Connected Apps feature.

April 20, 2019

These are the enhancements and new features for Access Management:

  • A VPN counter is added under Business Group settings to allow a fine-grained allocation of purchased VPNs within your organizations.

  • Audit log dates now display a timestamp for a year.

  • When configuring an external identity provider, users can now disable server certificate validation. See Configure OpenID Connect Client Management.

  • Enablement of non-SSO users for your organization allows organization administrators to invite and authenticate users outside of the external SSO configured for your organization.

  • Organization administrators can enable and disable automapper capability for Flow Designer under the organization settings in Access Manager. See the Flow Designer documentation for more information.

  • You can enable client deletion in Anypoint Platform, which allows deletions of clients within Anypoint Platform. See Configure OpenID Connect Client Management.

  • You can enable client deletion and updates in IdP, which allows updates and deletions of external clients in the configured IdP through an outbound call made by Anypoint Platform. To use this feature, you should opt-in to client deletion within Anypoint Platform.

  • The Audit Log screen and a downloadable CSV file now include environment names for events from API Manager, Runtime Manager, CloudHub, Partner Manager, and MQ.
