Two-factor authentication is a great way to keep your Backlog data secure. Now, Administrators can require all space users to use this security step with our latest Access Control setting.
Enabling two-factor authentication for all users
To use this security option, you must have a Premium or Platinum level plan (this is not available for Classic plans).
If you’re an administrator in your Backlog account, you can enable the Two-Factor Authentication setting from the access control screen.
Once enabled, Force Two-Factor Authentication will apply to the following:
- Access to space (Including access from mobile)
- Access to File(WebDAV)
- Access to Subversion
- Access to Git via HTTP
- Import to Milestone Calendar
- Access to RSS
However, it will NOT apply to the following:
- Access to Git via SSH
- Access to API using API key
- Import to Milestone Calendar using private address
- Access to File(WebDAV), Subversion, Git via HTTP and RSS using Special Password
If a user who previously disabled Two-Factor Authentication accesses Backlog on a Space where the administrator has now enabled the setting for all users, they will see a message informing them that Two-Factor Authentication is now required going forward.
After Two-Factor Authentication setting is enabled, you cannot use normal passwords for basic authentication when accessing by file, Subversion, Git (https), and RSS. Therefore, please be prepared to create a special password.
You can create a special password from “Personal Settings” → “Two-Factor Authentication”.
To enable Two-Factor Authentication, you can set it from “Access Control” → “Two-Factor Authentication”.
