You can invite listeners to a private show using an individual invite or bulk import!
As a tenancy admin or manager, you may invite listeners to a private show using an individual invite, or invite several people at once using a bulk import. For more information about these, please see this guide .
Users may also be given the ability to give themselves access by being part of an organization's single sign-on (SSO) infrastructure or a self-serve link shared.
Whooshkaa's preferred method for authenticated access to private feeds is via single sign-on. This gives organizations the control over on-boarding their employees easier, as well as controlling access from a central location.
Whooshkaa has direct support for SAML2 as well as Okta.
For more information or to configure SSO for your private feeds, please contact your account manager or Whooshkaa Support.
Listeners may also be given the ability to sign up themselves by using a self-serve link. As long as the user is given the correct link for the show (or show group) and has an email address at a domain that is white-listed for that show (or show group), the user can send themselves an invite to the show.
To share a self-serve invite via a link, please follow these steps.
Locate and navigate to the show you wish to invite them to.
Locate the Private Feeds tab and click it.
Click the "Invite" button and select the Invite via Link option from the menu. Observe the dialog popup.
Enter the domains that you would like to accept email addresses from. Please ensure that you enter the domain only and don't include other parts of the email address.
Note: you may enter more than domain by separating them on a new line. In the screenshot below, 3 domains are entered (whooshkaa.com, anotherwhooshkaadomain.com and someotherwhooshkaadomain.com).
Observe the Self-Serve Link field and the URL in that field. Copy the URL and use it as the link that you share with your desired listeners. Please note that only one link may be active at a time and this link may be "re-generated" at any time.
To disable this functionality at any time, uncheck the Enable Self-Serve Link checkbox. Please note that this does not disable existing feeds, however will disable the above link for future feeds.
To commit the changes (including the re-generated URL, if changed), click Save.
