Configure IP Address and Login Hours Restrictions in Salesforce

miniOrange allows you to control and manage access by Salesforce restriction on login IP ranges using policies to provide access, challenge the user with 2FA/MFA or deny access to the users based on trusted login IP Addresses or trusted login IP ranges.

  • For the Salesforce trusted login IP access restriction to work, the Admin must create a policy specifying permitted login IP address range which allows the access to the application.
  • miniOrange supports IP addresses range in three formats i.e. IPv4, IPv4 CIDR and IPv6 CIDR.
  • To block the access, Admin must specify an action which needs to be performed when a user tries to login from a non trusted IP address (Such as Deny or Challenge the user with 2FA).
  • Once the restriction policy is configured, it can be applied to any application’s login policy to enable login IP restriction for that application (Salesforce)

Connect with External Source of Users

miniOrange provides user authentication from various external sources, which can be Directories (like ADFS, Microsoft Active Directory, Azure AD, OpenLDAP, Google, AWS Cognito etc), Identity Providers (like Shibboleth, Ping, Okta, OneLogin, KeyCloak), Databases (like MySQL, Maria DB, PostgreSQL) and many more.
