Connecting Self-Hosted Applications
Cloudflare Access allows you to securely publish internal tools and applications to the Internet by providing an authentication layer using your existing identity providers to control who has access to your applications.
1. Add and configure your app
Navigate to the Applications tab on the Teams dashboard.
Click Add an application.
You are now ready to start configuring your app.
- Choose an application name and set a session duration. The session duration will determine the minimum frequency a user will be prompted to authenticate with the configured provider.
From the drop-down menu under Application domain, select a hostname that will represent the application. The hostname must be an active zone in your Cloudflare account.
Scroll down to the Application logo card to configure your application logo. To add a custom logo, click Custom and input a link to your desired image.
- Next, scroll down to the Identity Providers card to select the identity providers you want to enable for your app.
- Click Next.
2. Add rules for your app
The Add rules step lets you configure rules to control who can access your app.
First, specify a Rule name.
Specify a Rule action. By specifying an action, you define how this rule protects your application. You can set up a rule to either block, allow, or bypass certain users or user categories.
In the Configure a rule card, you can add rules to define which users or user categories are affected. You can add rules of the following types:
3. Configure advanced settings
Click Add application.
Your application is now connected to Access, and will appear in your Applications list.
