We are excited to announce the release of Baserow 1.13 and introduce two new security features as a part of Baserow Enterprise: role-based access control and single sign-on.
The new enterprise version was built to meet the needs of big organizations, and make Baserow even more secure and flexible. It comes with advanced user management to boost data protection and privacy requirements.
Baserow Enterprise is available to self-hosters and on Baserow.io the Advanced plan now comes with RBAC.
Role-Based Access Control (RBAC): Baserow RBAC helps teams manage complex access protocols, such as vetting who to grant data and resource access to and what they can do with the information. RBAC is also available for self-hosters and on Baserow.io for users who buy the Advanced plan.
Single Sign-On (SSO): Baserow now integrates with any 3rd party SSO provider using SAML to control who can login and let them do so without having to sign-up to your Baserow separately.
Role-based access control allows restricting access to your data by granting roles to your workspace members individually. Roles in this initial release are workspace-wide, but in the coming weeks, we will also allow you to assign roles on specific tables and databases.
For example, if you want to invite someone to your Baserow workspace but only let them view all of your tables and databases, you can now do so by inviting them to the “Viewer” role.
On the new workspace Members page, you can assign members one of the following roles for the entire workspace – Admin, Builder, Editor, Commenter, and Viewer. Here is an overview of what each role grants:
For a detailed breakdown on what exactly each role can do see the following Baserow table: https://baserow.io/public/grid/xVJLvN0zjCwXGFBgdgrmQRzt8dMqT0aes5FHSqPip40
Roles give organizations more flexibility around permissions that can be granted to members. Admins can:
Single Sign On (SSO) allows users to log in just one time with one set of credentials to get access to all corporate apps, websites, and data for which they have permission.
Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is a security standard for managing authentication and access. When using SAML SSO, members log in to their Baserow organization using the organization’s identity provider.
Baserow supports dedicated integrations with the following identity providers:
OAuth2 protocol provides secure delegated access without sharing the credentials. It allows users to give access to their resources hosted by a service provider, such as Facebook, without giving away credentials. It acts as an intermediary on behalf of the end user, providing the service with an access token that authorizes specific account information to be shared.
OpenID Connect is an identity layer built on top of the OAuth 2.0 protocol. Its purpose is to give you one login for multiple sites. With the support of OpenID Connect, the Baserow users are now able to use ANY service that supports this exact protocol to login into the tool.
Our integration with Make is live! Make (formerly Integromat) is an automation platform that integrates with over 1000 apps including Baserow now. It allows you to visually create, build, and automate workflows.
We know this integration was very awaited by our community, so we are extremely happy to announce its launch today. Check it out: https://www.make.com/en/integrations/baserow.
Thanks to our community member — Piotr, Baserow is now available in Polish. Piotr, thank you so much for the efforts you have made to do the translation.

We added many new templates, and did some upgrades to existing ones. See up-to-date updates on the Templates page.
We are always working to make Baserow exactly what you need for organizing your data. Your feedback will help us to decide which features to build in the next milestones as we are currently setting a new product roadmap.
To help us make Baserow the best it can be, we need your feedback today. Take 2 minutes to fill out our survey: https://baserow.io/form/am1xpHj-_nsv1dnhrl1kV_CCzcha-mvZLbhE4Gm7HVo.
Today we want to thank Abdalla Mahmoud for contributing ’Switched click outside handling in modals and contexts to
mousedown rather than
click event’ and fixing ‘Slug rotation for GalleryView’. Abdalla, your enthusiasm is highly appreciated 💙
Another thank you we want to address to Abin Joseph who discovered an open redirect bug on the login page which we have already fixed. Abin thank you for discovering and pointing our attention to this bug.
We are amazed by all the tutorials Claudio Balbino (Vamos Automatizar) created! Portuguese-speaking users, here are new videos on how Baserow can be used to automate some work in a bundle with n8n. Enjoy watching!
Claudio, thank you for your big support!
Sharing is caring, and we do care about each other here. Do not hold onto your tips, lifehacks, techniques, or workarounds — share, and help each other grow.
Luc W, our community member, created an amazing plugin on top of Baserow — this plugin introduces very powerful language translation capabilities.
“My goal was to develop a collaborative spreadsheet specialized on language learning. Building from scratch would have been fun. But using Baserow allowed me to put together a prototype in weeks. The documentation is outstanding. You can build your business logic on top of baserow and not be worried about being limited somehow due to its open source nature. I’ve got everything working exactly how I wanted it, with very little code, and almost no front-end code. Really happy with baserow and the plugin system.”, Luc W.
More details on the plugin can be found here: https://community.baserow.io/t/language-translation-using-baserow/1345.
We also want to share another great project Data Blaze Beta! that was built on top of Baserow by the company Blaze. Just have a look at how far you can go while using an open-source project that is built with extensibility at its core: https://community.blaze.today/t/request-for-feedback-data-blaze-beta/22784.
