URL access protection addon

We're thrilled to introduce the most secure way to manage your data access. 🚀

With Retable's URL access protection addon, you can add a secure password-protection mechanism to your projects, views and forms.  

The URL access protection addon helps you to easily set passwords for your public projects, views and forms. This way, only people who have your password can access your publicly shared data and forms.

Once applied, this addon will be available for the project you're in. You can move your addon to different projects and workspaces as you wish.

Getting started with URL access protection addon

Getting started with URL access protection addon

Follow these steps to protect your views or projects with a password:

  • In your dashboard, click on "Addon" from the menu on the left side.
  • From the addon management screen that appears, select the "URL access protection" addon.
  • Choose the workspace and project where you want to apply the addon (you can move it to another project later if needed).
  • Complete the payment steps.
  • Go to the project where you chose to apply the addon.
  • Select the view or form you want to share as password-protected. If desired, you can share the entire project as password-protected.
  • If you want to share a view or form as password-protected, click the "Share" button at the top right of the view.
  • Activate the "Create link to view" toggle.
  • Then, activate the "Restrict by password" toggle.
  • In the password pop-up that appears, set a password. This password should not be the same as your Retable account password and must be at least 4 characters long.
  • Save your password.
  • You are now ready to share your public link! Anyone with the public link will need to enter the password you set to access the data in the view or form.

You can follow the same steps to share your entire project as password-protected. Simply go to the "Sharing settings" menu in your project's settings. In the "Project link" tab, you can create a public link for your project and add a password.

How to cancel URL access protection addon?

You can easily cancel your addon from the addon detail window that will open after clicking the "Cancel" button. After cancelling your add-on, you can continue to use it until the next payment period. Your addon will be automatically cancelled in the next payment period.
