Linking Fastly Accounts

access_time Updated Sep 15, 2021

You can link your Fastly and Signal Sciences accounts, allowing you to sign in using your Fastly account login credentials and freely switch between the Signal Sciences and Fastly consoles. After linking your accounts, you will only be able to log into the Signal Sciences console using your Fastly account credentials.

Linking your Fastly and Signal Sciences accounts only affects authentication when logging into the Signal Sciences console. Other settings such as user roles and API access tokens are not affected.

Before you begin

Before you begin linking your Fastly and Signal Sciences accounts, understand the following:

  • You can not unlink your Fastly and Signal Sciences accounts once they have been linked.
  • Linked accounts do not currently support SAML authentication. Linked accounts authenticate using your Fastly email address and password, rather than through your identity provider.
  • 2FA is supported, but must be enabled on both your Fastly and Signal Sciences accounts before you will be able to link them.
  • Signal Sciences accounts set to bypass SSO can not be linked.
