Private Timelines allow restricting Timeline accesses with a secret token.

Private Timelines are available with the Enterprise Plan only.

Enabling Private Timelines

Open a project page.
Select "Timeline" in the project menu bar:



Click on "Visibility" in the right side menu:



On the page that appears, check the box "Request a secret token" and enter your secret token in the input box below:



Click "Save".

Passing a Token to Timelines

Noticeable Timelines support 2 manners to pass a secret token: a token query parameter and an Authorization: Bearer XXX header. In both cases, it is highly recommended to use HTTPS.

Query Parameter

Let's say your timeline URL is http://timeline.noticeable.io/ZW6TLvP70GfMDgy9dHEX and your secret token is XXX, then you simple need to append the token query parameter to the timeline URL and all other pages you browse: http://timeline.noticeable.io/ZW6TLvP70GfMDgy9dHEX?token=XXX.

Authorization Header

Noticeable Timelines also support passing a secret token via an Authorization header of type Bearer. Let's say your secret token is XXX then the header key to use is Authorization and the value Bearer XXX.

If a Private Timeline is accessed with an invalid token or a missing one, then the user is automatically redirected to the URL associated with the project.
