EQuIS Enterprise Login Screen

Since EQuIS Enterprise is a secure website, user credentials are required to log in. Three methods of user authentication to the EQuIS Enterprise site are supported on the Login Screen:

1.EQuIS username and password (i.e., basic user authentication)

2.Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AAD)

3.OpenID Connect

 

Ent-Login-Window

 

Once a user has been authenticated, the Welcome dashboard will be displayed if the user is new to Enterprise. For existing Enterprise users, a dashboard will be displayed based on the user's default dashboard settings.

 

 

EQuIS Username and Password

 

For basic authentication, enter the Username and Password provided by the database administrator on the EQuIS Enterprise Login Screen. The Show Password Ent-Show_Password_Icon icon can be used to toggle password visibility. Click the Sign In button to access the Enterprise site.

 

Forgot your password? – A user can select the “Forgot your password?” link if they are an existing user and need to request a new password. When prompted, populate the required fields in the “Forgot your password?” Form that opens. Populate the email address associated with the existing user account and an email will be sent with a temporary password. The title of the email will be “EQuIS Enterprise Password Reset” and will reference the username and site address.

 

Stay signed in – When using basic authentication, a user can check the "Stay signed in" check box to issue a device token. The device token allows the user to close the browser and still be logged into Enterprise.

 

Create New Account – A new user can select the “Create New Account” link to request access to the Enterprise site. See the New User Registration article for details.

 

Note: The “Create New Account” link will not be visible unless new user registration is enabled by adding the EnableRegistration entry to the ST_CONFIG database table.

 

 

Azure Active Directory

 

If configured for Enterprise users to be authenticated with Microsoft Azure Active Directory, a "Sign in with Microsoft" button will be visible on the Login Screen. If an administrator wants all EQuIS users to only use AAD user authentication, basic user authentication can be disabled (see the Configure Login Screen article).

 

 

OpenID Connect

 

If configured for Enterprise users to be authenticated with an external, third party identity provider using OpenID Connect, a “Sign in with OpenID” button will be visible on the Enterprise Login Screen. Clicking that button will redirect the browser to the identity provider login screen, where the user will authenticate with the identity provider (including any additional verification steps, such as 2FA/MFA). Upon successful login, the user will be automatically redirected back to the Enterprise site as an authenticated user. If an administrator wants all EQuIS users to only use OpenID user authentication, basic user authentication can be disabled (see the Configure Login Screen article).
