This page assumes you completed the Indent Quickstart. (5 min setup)
This guide uses an identity provider (like Google or Okta) to connect with Vercel Enterprise. Indent is used to grant temporary (or permanent) access to those groups, and automatically collects evidence your org needs for audits and compliance.
The integration between Vercel and Indent will then grant access to Vercel teams and projects for anyone who's part of a related group from your IdP.
1. Set up your Identity Provider
2. Follow the Vercel SSO Guide
- Visit the Vercel SSO docs
- Follow the instructions until you also complete the section on Setting up Directory Sync
In the following example, you're logged in as Fouad and can request access to an Okta Group. In real usage, you would need the Okta Group to be linked with a team in Vercel. Since the Identity Provider (in this example, Okta) is linked with Vercel, this request will grant Fouad access to the Team.
Try submitting and approving an example request:
You should be able to make a similar live request using your Indent Dashboard.
Congrats! You added the Vercel + Indent integration. Your employees can now securely request access Vercel resources. Indent will automatically record an audit log, and (if you desire) auto-expire access after a time period of your choosing.
Check out the Integrations page page for other services your teams want to request. If there's a new integration you'd like to see, request a new one. You might be ready to start inviting others to try Indent. If that's the case, you'll want to send them docs on how to make a request. You and anyone approving requests should read more about approving and declining requests.
Why can't I see my groups in Indent?
You might need to sync Okta Groups or Google Workspaces with Indent. Try visiting the Resources section in your Indent dashboard, and clicking Pull Updates.
I get approved, but I can't access Vercel. Why?
You might need to setup Vercel to associate a group from your Identity Provider with a team. Vercel's docs for SSO and Directory Sync suggest you review your configuration in their Team Settings.
Can Indent host the integration for me?
Sure! We can host the integration on an AWS tenant. That's a popular way to do an initial setup while your teams test out Indent. To start that process, contact Indent Support
