Disable platform authentication#

If you have already set up a SAML authentication method then you might want to disable the default password-based platform authentication method to prevent it being used to access projects within your account.

Here are the steps to follow to disable platform authentication:

  1. Log in to the Aiven Console using your alternative authentication (for example, SAML) method.


You must not be logged in with any open sessions using the password-based platform authentication.

  1. From the top-right corner of the Aiven Console, click on User information and then click Authentication tab.

  2. Use the toggle switch under the Authentication methods section to turn off platform authentication for the Aiven Password method.


Once you disable platform authentication, you’ll receive an error if you try to login using the Aiven CLI without supplying a token.

Check out the dedicated CLI docs to learn how to view and update account authentication methods from the Aiven CLI.
