For additional security, you can configure two-factor authentication (TFA) with a free authenticator application like Authy.
Two-factor authentication exceeds standard security practices by requiring more than a username and password for login access. The authenticator software generates a token that expires within 60 seconds. This token provides the additional layer of authentication required for login.
To configure two-factor authentication:
- Log in to Account Management (IAM of EWO).
Select Authenticator in your profile.
Download and install an authenticator on your smart phone from the Google Play or Apple App store.
Note: These applications do not require internet access to generate a one-time code.
- Open the authentication application on your smart phone.
Scan the barcode (or enter the key) displayed on the Workload Orchestrator Authenticator dialog.
The authenticator application generates a 6-digit random number code.
In the Workload Orchestrator Authenticator dialog, enter the one-time code generated by the application.
Click Save to complete the authentication configuration.
Once you configure the authenticator, you will see a confirmation message.
- Once you set up two-factor authentication, you will need to use the authenticator application to access your account after entering your username and password.
- After you enter the username and password, the login will direct you to a screen to enter the one-time code generated by the application.
