Restrict access to Snowflake and Settings

New Anthology Illuminate users have access to Reporting, Developer, and Settings by default. Users with access to Settings can manage service account credentials that are used in machine-to-machine connections, for example, PowerBI.  

You can restrict access to Developer and Settings to specific roles or individuals, whilst allowing them to access Reporting, if your institution uses Anthology Login for authentication.

To restrict access to Snowflake and Settings: 

  • Assign a different system role in Blackboard Learn for users of Developer and Reporting. Each user who requires access needs to have the relevant system role assigned in Learn: 
    • Developer (access to Snowflake,Settings, and Reporting) –  select System Administrator 
    • Reporting (only) – select another role. We recommend you create a new role.
  • Check that these users are part of the correct login group that provides access to Anthology Illuminate via Anthology Login. 
  • Log a support ticket requesting Anthology Illuminate user group mapping and provide the details of your chosen system roles. 

If your institution doesn’t use Anthology Login, You need to change your authentication method for Anthology Illuminate if you want to leverage these access restrictions:

  • Log a support ticket to ask for help adopting Anthology Login for Anthology Illuminate.
  • Once you adopt Anthology Login, follow the steps to restrict access to Snowflake and Settings.

This will not change your authentication method for Blackboard Learn. Once this has been completed, follow the steps above to restrict access to Developer and Settings.  

Check which Anthology login your institutions uses:

  • If you login to Anthology Illuminate using the “Sign in with your institutional account” option, your institution uses Anthology Login.
