The logon module allows an unauthenticated user (known as an anonymous user) to authenticate with the system and establish an identity context.
While some content may be available to anonymous users it is usually necessary to authenticate with the system prior to performing work of any significance.
Any established user account with a valid email address and password can logon by clicking the logon button from the portal navigation menu.
From here the user has two options of authentication depending on how your organization is configured.
The second authentication option is to perform a claims-based Single Sign On authentication operation in which the user authenticates against a local directory system and through a trust relationship with the portal security framework identity is established. This option is only available to those customers that have been previously configured as detailed in the authentication and authorization topic.
If you forget your password, you can use the Forgot Password button to initiate a process to reset your account credentials by entering your registered account email address and pressing Send Password. The system will send you an activation email with a temporary password. You will be forced to change your password again upon logon. If you do not receive your activation email, ensure that the address firstname.lastname@example.org is added to your safe senders list.
After an administrative user provisions your account for you will receive an email from with a link to activate and an activation code. If you do not receive your activation email ensure that the address email@example.com is added to your safe senders list and request that a reminder email be sent. To activate you can either click the activation link in the email or if you are distrustful of such things (as you should be) you can copy the activation code out of the email and enter it directly in the account activation page and press Activate Now to enable the account. The Password Manager will open prompting you to provide a new set of credentials for the account. You may then logon to the system and open the Profile Editor to update your account details.
