Opal + GitHub

Opal + GitHub Use cases

Protect against breaches with least privilege

  • Grant just-in-time access to GitHub repos and teams that are auto-expiring and fully audited using Slack
  • Ensure that privileged roles have the appropriate identity governance and approval configurations, such as multi-stage approvals, max duration, custom fields, and more

Accelerate employee access on paved roads

  • Enable resource owners with the most context to approve access requests and provision access automatically via Slack
  • Accelerate employee onboarding by enabling managers to request on behalf of their reports or enabling self-service discovery of resource bundles
  • Automate on-call access by provisioning and deprovisioning access via on-call schedules

Simplify compliance without manual overhead

  • Automate user access reviews so compliance teams can snapshot user listings, assign reviewers to self-service reviews, propagate access changes, and generate an auditor-friendly access report
  • Review access of employees who have recently transferred roles or departments
