Two Factor Authentication
Two-Factor Authentication user login security feature can be enabled from the
Account Information and Login Security menu. You can Enable/Disable Two-Factor Authentication for your user login and select E-mail or Use Google Authenticator as your preferred mode.
When you select E-mail as your 2FA mode, you will get a security code to your registered email ID as a second login credential.
Copy the security code from the email and enter the code in the 2-Step Verification screen of the OmniVista Cirrus R10 login screen and click on Verify.
Your code is now verified and you will be logged in to the OmniVista Cirrus R10.
The Google Authenticator App generates a time-based, 6-digit code that must be entered in addition to your login/password to log into OmniVista Cirrus. Follow the steps below to install and set up Google Authenticator, and log into OmniVista Cirrus.
Go to the My Profile page in OmniVista Cirrus and locate the Security section. In this section, click on the switcher to enable the Two Factor Authentication entry. The following two options for receiving the required 6-digit code are displayed:
Use E-mail: Select this option to receive the 6-digit code by email each time you attempt to sing-in to OmniVista Cirrus. The code is sent to the email associated with your account. This option doesn’t require a particular configuration.
Use Google Authenticator: Select this option to use a 6-digit code generated by the Google Authenticator application on your mobile phone. This option requires preliminary configuration of Google Authenticator, as described below.
Configuring the Google Authenticator Option
1. Click on the Use Google Authenticator radio button. A new form will display with a QR code displayed:
2. Go to the Google Play App Store or the Apple App Store and download the Google Authenticator App to your phone.
3. Open the Google Authenticator App on your phone and use your phone to scan the QR code displayed on the screen. (Click on the + icon at the bottom of the Google Authenticator App Screen, then click on the Scan a QR Code option to bring up the camera. Hold the phone up to the screen to scan the QR Code on the login page.)
4. If the validation is successful, you will get a first 6-digit code. Enter this code where indicated on the line below the QR code as shown above. Click on the Validate button to finalize this configuration process.
5. Starting now, the Two Factor Authentication process is configured for your account. This means that each time you sign in to OmniVista, you will be requested to enter a 6-digit code received either by email or generated in the Google Authenticator App (depending on the selected mode).
When the scan is complete, the following screen will appear in the Google Authenticator App. When you scan the QR Code into the Google Authenticator App, the App sets up your account and stores your user name (e.g., OV-2FA-johntest) and the URL of the machine you are logging into.
As shown above, a 6-digit login code is displayed under your user name and URL. Note that the code is good for 30 seconds. A countdown clock is shown to the right of the code. When the timer is close to expiring, the code numbers will turn red. When the countdown is complete, a new code will be displayed for 30 seconds.
Note: If you cannot scan the QR Code as described above, you can use the 16-digit key above the QR Code to set up your account in the Google Authenticator App. To enter this code, click on Enter a setup key instead of Scan a QR Code. Enter your Account (e.g., OV-2FA-johntest), enter the Key, then click on the Add button.
Enter the code for your user account into the TOTP Code Field on the OmniVista Cirrus Login Screen and click Verify to log into OmniVista Cirrus. If you have more than one user account set up in the Google Authenticator App, make sure you are entering the code for the correct account.
Once you set up your user account in the Google Authenticator App as described above, you will log in using your username/password and the 6-digit code provided by the Google Authenticator App. To log into OmniVista Cirrus, enter your username/password, open Google Authenticator App, and enter the code for your account on the Two-Factor Authentication Login Screen.
Troubleshooting Tip: If the user lost the phone on which the Google or Apple Authenticator App was installed, he can click on the tab “Don’t have access to the code?” to notify the administrator to disable the two-factor authentication for the user account in the two step verification page. Once it is disabled for the lost phone, user can re add the Google Authenticator to a new phone by re-configuring the steps mentioned above to enable the Google Authenticator.
