Sometimes, vendors prefer to keep their roadmaps away from prying eyes, especially competitors, while still being transparent with their user base. This is where the Protected Roadmap feature comes into play.
What is a Protected Roadmap?
A Protected Roadmap is a roadmap that is accessible only to specific individuals. It ensures that only authorized users can view the contents while keeping it hidden from everyone else.
How to Set Up a Protected Roadmap
Follow these steps to configure a protected roadmap:
Step 1: Create a Public Roadmap
Start by creating a public roadmap. This will serve as the basis for your protected roadmap.
Step 2: Integrate with Single Sign-On (SSO)
Integrate your product or service with Single Sign-On (SSO). This will allow your users to use one set of login credentials to access the roadmap.
Step 3: Create a Redirect Link
Create a redirect link to your public portal. This link should use a token generated from the SSO integration. This token will be essential in verifying the users’ identities and granting them access to the roadmap.
Step 4: Contact Us to Enable Protection
Reach out to our support team through the chat feature on our website and request to have your roadmap set as protected. This step is crucial as it ensures that only authorized users can access the roadmap.
Step 5: Understand the Authentication Process
Once the Protected Roadmap is enabled, users trying to access the portal will need to authenticate through their designated domain. If they don't have the appropriate authentication cookie in their browser’s local storage, they will receive an HTTP 401 error indicating unauthorized access.
