Custom Logins and Organization Permissioned Logins

BEFORE YOU BEGIN

Allow users to log into your account with Custom Logins or Organization Permissioned Logins. Organization Permissioned Logins are different from the existing custom login system in that it treats logins like "users" of the account rather than "access codes". These logins have their own email address, password, and 2FA and use the organization's name on the login page. This feature is currently only available to institutions. Learn more here. 

Organization Permissioned Logins

Customize user flows and permissions to allow users to log into your company account.

Organization Permissioned Logins are available for company accounts only.

Add/Edit users on the fly using permissioned logins under the Account Security tab of your profile.

Specifics on user permissions and roles are provided below.

1. Sign in to your FTX US account and navigate to your profile under "account settings". This can be found by clicking on your user email on the top right of the platform > click settings > profile

2. Easily add and delete permissioned logins. Permissioned logins will receive an email link to set up their own password and 2FA.

3. Configure access levels specific to each permissioned login. 

4. Assign permissioned logins with or without subaccount restriction.

  • Permissions & Roles

    You'll see a form that lets you create a login with permissions. Each login has a name and password, and you can specify permissions. 

    • Subaccount: You can restrict the login's access to only one subaccount, or allow access to all subaccounts
    • Read-Only: Can't take actions on the site (e.g. cannot trade, withdraw, transfer), but can view and download items such as trade history
    • Can Withdraw: Allowed to withdraw on the blockchain, to OTC, or transfer between subaccounts
    • Examples of permissions and roles are as follows:
      • Auditor = Read Only
      • Trader = Not Read-Only, Cannot Withdraw 
      • Admin = Not Read Only, Can Withdraw
  • Creating a Permissioned Login

    Under Settings, scroll down to the Account Security section and click the 'Organized Permissioned Logins' tab. You'll see a form that lets you create a login with permissions. When a permissioned login is created, the recipient is emailed a link to an activation page where they can set up their own password and 2FA independent from the main account. Two-factor authentication is required to log in. You can specify the following permissions:

    • Subaccount: You can restrict the login's access to only one subaccount, or let it access all accounts
    • Read-Only: read-only logins can't take actions on the site (e.g. cannot trade, withdraw, transfer), but can view and download items such as trade history.
    • Can Withdraw: Admins are allowed to withdraw on the blockchain, to OTC, or transfer between subaccounts.

    Only the main login can manage permissioned logins, reset the main login password and 2FA and change withdrawal password settings. 

  • Setting the Organization Name

    Organization names are used by permissioned logins at the user login screen. Your organization name can be a nickname. It must be unique and will not affect any other part of your profile. Existing permissioned logins will be notified via email about organization name changes.
  • Signing in with a Permissioned Login

    Head directly to https://ftx.us/login, toggle on Custom Login and Use Organization then enter in your user email, password, and company's Organization Name. If you don’t know the organization name, please ask the main account holder who can easily find the organization name under their profile settings. Permissioned logins also receive an email with a deep link to the login form to automate this process. For example, with the organization name "mkp-capital-org" you can navigate to https://ftx.us/login? permissionedLoginOrg=mkp-capital-org which will auto-populate the login form.

  • Deleting a Permissioned Login

    If you want to delete a permissioned login, you can click the trash can icon in the custom login table on your settings page. Doing so will remove access for anyone currently logged in and using it. The main user will be able to view a history of all logins directly under Login History 

  • 2FA

    All permissioned logins are restricted to read-only access until 2FA is enabled. Once 2FA is enabled, their access is restored to initial settings. You may change your 2FA type using the Login Settings section on the settings page when logged in to them. 

    Only the main login can change withdrawal password settings, activate if withdrawals require 2FA, reset the main login password, and manage other logins. 

  • FTX.US OTC

    Permissioned logins are compatible with FTX.US OTC. Only those with no subaccount restriction are allowed access to OTC. The other settings (read-only, withdrawal-enabled) also apply when using FTX.US OTC.

    To use them for OTC, you need to first log in to FTX using the above methods and then can visit https://otc.ftx.us/.
