New Account Provisioning API Enables Data Protection Automation
In almost every organization, change is constant. New people join the organization, some leave and others change roles. Each of these transitions in the life cycle of an employee requires a change of access to applications and data. Over time, organizations will look to automate these changes to reduce their costs and increase their accuracy of managing access. This is especially true for enterprises and industries like education where there is a high turnover of users each time a class graduates.
To support our customers’ automation efforts, Spanning Backup for Google Workspace now includes a RESTful API for managing your users’ data protection.
For our larger customers, the API is a necessity, and we have already seen rapid adoption of its use. These customers are leveraging the API with simple scripts they have written and other customers plan to integrate it with their full user provisioning solutions.
To review the full list of functions available through the API, take a look at the documentation at: https://api.spanningbackup.com
To enable API access for your Spanning Backup domain, log in as an administrator and navigate to the Settings tab. Scroll down to the API Token Settings section and click Generate API Token. Grab the token and start coding!
