Using Service Accounts with Nightfall
Can we use Service Accounts for authentication in the Nightfall integrations?
As a best practice, service accounts are recommended for authentication because they will not be tied to any specific user, and will persist regardless of which users may leave/join your organization.
Also, as a security measure, it may be beneficial to provide the access privileges required to a service account, rather than having to manage permissions given to specific users. That being said, the requirements for service accounts differ by integration, as outlined below.
