The i4Identity Login page

Abstract

The i4Identity login page allows you to gain access to the i4connected application by entering your username and password or by authenticating using another provider.

After registering to i4connected the user can access the portal, using the preferred browser, by using the i4Identity Login page.

Tip

For more details about the i4Identity Registration page, please also visit the dedicated article, here.

By default, the portal is accessible for the user by normal login (by providing Username and Password) but other authentication providers can be enabled, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Microsoft, and Custom OpenID Connect.

Tip

In order to enable external login providers at the level of i4connected API check out this article. As the external providers need to be enabled at the level of the i4connected server, as well, check out this article.

In this view, the user can select the language to be enabled for the portal, by choosing the desired option from the drop-down list. If the language is not changed, the default portal language will be enabled. The default language is defined at user creation, but it may be changed in edit user mode.

Clicking the Remember My Login box tells the browser to save a cookie so that if the users close the browser window without signing out, the next time when they return, they will be signed back in automatically. It is, however, important to know that signing out of the portal, will completely negate the Remember My Login function, therefore the users will be required to manually type the sign-in information again when they return.

Warning

The used browser should be set to remember cookies, otherwise, this function will not work.
