To log into the mobile app, first refer to the welcome email for your user account. If you are not using SSO, log into the web app to register your password first. To log in with SSO, refer to the next section of this article.
Make a note of the Account Name, shown above in the highlighted section of the account URL. When logging into the mobile app for the first time, you will enter the account before your username.
Enter the account name and press Continue.
Next enter your user name. This is the name given to your AlertOps user account, shown in the welcome email above.
After entering your user name and pressing Continue, enter your password on the next screen.
After entering your password, you will land on the Open Alerts page.
For organizations using SSO, logging into the mobile app is just slightly different. For example, the welcome email does not ask you to set your password.
Refer to the account name in the highlighted section of the account url. You will enter this first when logging into the mobile app. We will use Okta as our SSO provider for this article.
After entering the account name, enter your user name on the next screen, but do not press Continue. Instead, press Sign in with SSO (highlighted below).
You will then be taken to a different screen for your SSO provider:
Enter the AlertOps user name, and your SSO password. You may then be prompted for a 2 factor verification code.
Press Send code to have a code sent to your phone, then enter it for verification. Select the box for "Do not challenge me on this device again" if you do not want to repeat this step. After pressing Verify, you will land on the Open Alerts page.
