Ardexa supports two-factor authentication via the Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator or other compatible mobile apps. Once enabled on your account, you will need to enter your email and password, plus a six-digit one-time password generated by the app you have linked to log on to the Ardexa Cloud.
A token is generated each time you log on to the Ardexa Cloud, and is used to authorise any requests you make on the platform. This is not relevant to most users, but developers may find it useful for testing requests against Ardexa's API without needing to issue a fully-fledged API token. Tokens last for ten (10) hours after logging in.
This panel displays the Workgroups you have access to. Your Default Workgroup selection determines which workgroup will be displayed after logging on to the Ardexa Cloud.
If you have access to a large number of Workgroups, you can opt to hide some by clicking on the Hide? checkbox. Hiding a workgroup will prevent it from appearing in the workgroup drop-down menu on the top-left of the screen.
This panel displays a, "You are a super user!" banner and will only be visible for superusers or owners of the current workgroup. Users can also add a new workgroup by using the "Create new workgroup" section. The button to create a workgroup will only be clickable once the new name of the workgroup has been filled.
