Manage access to apps in Zapier

You can control which apps members of your Zapier for Companies account have access to. There are two options:

Restricted apps: members can use any app on Zapier unless it’s on your restricted list.

Allowed apps: members can only use apps that are on your allowed list.

Tip

After you change access to an app, if any existing Zaps use apps that violate your settings:

  • You will see a notification at the time that the setting changes.
  • Zapier will hold those Zap runs.
  • You will see a notification when you attempt to publish changes to your Zap.
miscEye icon Note
  • You must have a Zapier for Companies account to manage access to apps.
  • Only admins, super admins, and account owners can enable this feature.
  • Your account must have one or more verified domains.
  • Members of your account will still be able to connect their app accounts and use them to set up triggers and actions (including loading or creating test records), but they will not be able to publish and run the Zap.
  • You can only enable either restricted apps or allowed apps settings. You cannot enable both.

 

Select your app access setting

To control which apps members of your account have access to, you must enable either the restricted apps or allowed apps setting. You cannot enable both. 

By default, your account has the restricted apps setting enabled. You can change your app access settings at any time.

  1. Go to your Security settings.
  2. Select Allowed or restricted apps. You will be redirected to a new page.
  3. Your account is set to restricted apps by default. 
  4. If:
    1. Allowed apps is enabled, click Change to restricted apps.
    2. Restricted apps is enabled, click Change to allowed apps.

Add a new app restriction

When you add a restricted app, no members of your account can use that app. Members can use any app that is not in your restricted list.

  1. Go to your Security settings.
  2. Select Allowed or restricted apps. You will be redirected to the Restricted apps page.
  3. Click Add app. You’ll be redirected to the Add restricted app page.
  4. In the Search for an app field, search for and select the app you want to restrict.
  5. Click Add restricted app.
  6. You will see a notification if:
    1. The app is being used in Zaps by members of your account. You can review the app connections and any associated Zaps on your Apps page.
    2. The app is already restricted.

(Optional) Add an exemption to a restricted app

You can create exemptions to your restricted list so everyone in your account is restricted from using the app, except for the exempted members or teams.

  1. Go to your Security settings.
  2. Select Allowed or restricted apps. You will be redirected to the Restricted apps page.
  3. Select the app that you want to add an exemption to. You’ll be redirected to the restriction page for that app.
  4. In the Allow app for specific members or teams field, search for and select a member or team in your account to exempt.
Example

If you add Quickbooks to your restricted apps list, you can add an exemption for your accounting team. This will give your accounting team access to Quickbooks, while the rest of your account will still be restricted from using the app.

Tip

You can remove an exemption at any time by clicking Remove next to the member or team.

Note

You can only exempt one member or team at a time.
