Account Management

Account management allows you to configure your own account. You can reach your account settings from two places:

  1. Keboola Connection home page
  2. Projects

Go to the Keboola Connection home page and select Account Settings in the little drop down box at the top:

Or, find the Account Settings page from any of your projects:

On the Account Settings page, you can do the following:

Changing Password

To change your password, go to your account settings — the Account & Security section.

First you need to enter your old password. Remember you cannot change your email address because it is considered an identifier; you have to create a new account.

Multi-Factor Authentication

We highly recommend enabling the multi-factor authentication (MFA) on your account, as it greatly increases its security.

We support two types of MFA:

  1. Time-based one-time password (TOTP) — a software-based authentication technique. When logging into a site supporting TOTP, the authenticator app generates a six-digit one-time password that you must enter in addition to your usual login details. You can use a phone or another device as a virtual multi-factor authentication (TOTP) device. Follow the instructions.

  2. Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) — a hardware device. When signing in, activate your security key as suggested in its documentation (e.g., by pressing a button) rather than typing in a verification code. For using security keys, use the FIDO U2F standard. Follow the instructions.

TOTP

TOTP is software-based authentication. You need to have a device with the Google Authenticator app or a compatible MFA application (MFA using SMS is not supported). To enable MFA, go to Account & Security and click the Enable MFA button:

Then click on Enable TOTP:

Set up the Google Authenticator app, scan the QR code with your camera, and enter the obtained code:

Once you click the Activate button, the MFA will be enabled. You can then download the MFA Recovery Codes or reconfigure the MFA to another device:

Every time you log in with your email and password, you will be prompted to enter the MFA code obtained from your device:

U2F

U2F is a hardware device that can be used as your second factor of authentication. It currently works on most modern browsers:

Browser: Chrome Firefox Opera Safari Edge IE
Supported version: >= 41 >= 67 >= 42 Not Supported Not Supported Not Supported

When signing in, press the button on the device rather than typing in a verification code. Security keys use the FIDO U2F standard.

To enable U2F, go to Account & Security and click the Enable MFA button:

Then click the Enable U2F button:

Screenshot -- Enable U2F -- Step 2

Enter a name for your U2F device and click Add:

Screenshot -- Enable U2F -- Step 3

Then activate your security key as recommended in its documentation (e.g., press the button):

Screenshot -- Enable U2F -- Step 4

Once you are redirected, you will get the following notification: The new u2f device "my-u2f-device" was added. You will also see that Multi-factor authentication is enabled and that You have configured 1 device:

You can manage your U2F devices when clicking on View or change settings:

Screenshot -- Enable U2F -- Step 6

Every time you log in with your email and password, you will be asked to activate your security key. To do that, follow the key’s documentation (e.g., press the button):

Invitations

The Invitations page shows a project or a list of projects you have been invited to. When you accept an invitation, you’ll become a user of the project and will be redirected there. When you decline the invitation, you’ll lose the opportunity to enter the project.

Tokens

On the Access Tokens page, you can create tokens for the Management API. Do not confuse them with Storage API tokens, which are used for operations within a project. Management tokens are used for project-independent operations such as creating and moving projects, creating organizations and projects monitoring. This means that the Management API offers some features which are not available from the UI yet. Unless you need the features or have other reasons to work with the Management API, there is no need to create a management token.

To create a management token, click the New Token button in the Access Tokens section:

Screenshot -- Manage Tokens

Fill in an arbitrary token name and click the Create Token button:

Screenshot -- Create Manage Token

The token will be shown to you.

Important: Be sure to note it — it cannot be retrieved!

Screenshot -- Manage Token Created

Despite the fact that management tokens always expire, we advise you to delete the ones you are not using.

Promo Codes

You may receive promotional codes to create a new project. They are not applied to existing projects but are typically used for ad-hoc projects, hackathons, and PoCs.

User Sessions

Each time you sign in to the Keboola Connection user interface, a user session is created. The session is closed after an explicit logout or after 48 hours of inactivity.

You can sign in to your account multiple times from different devices (or browser windows). All devices that you have used to log into your account are listed on the User Sessions page.

Screenshot -- User Sessions

You can revoke any of these sessions. Revoking a session is the equivalent of logging out from the UI. Revoke your sessions if you forgot to log out on a computer you don’t have access to, if you loose your computer or detect any suspicious activity.
