i4connected Knowledgebase 5.6

The Login page

Abstract

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

When opening the i4connected portal in browser, the login page is displayed. 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 level of i4connected API check out this article. As the external providers need to be enabled at 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 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 function, therefore the users will be required to 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.
