Log in to ASMS

Log in to ASMS from any desktop computer using the credentials provided by an AFA administrator.

Do the following:

  1. In your browser, navigate to https://<algosec_server> where <algosec_server> is the ASMS server IP address or DNS name.

    If a warning message about the web server's certificate appears, click Accept or OK. For more details, contact your network administrator.

    The Security Management Suite login page appears.

  2. In the Username and Password fields, enter your username and password, and click Login.

You are logged in, and ASMS displays AFA by default.

For example:

Switch ASMS products

If you are a user in multiple ASMS products, such as AFA, FireFlow, and AppViz, switch between products using the dropdown at the top-left, above the main menu.

If you are an administrator for any of these products, the relevant administration menu is available from your user dropdown at the top-right:

Note: CloudFlow is now accessible from inside ASMS. Click the dropdown at the top-left and select CloudFlow.

For more details, see our CloudFlow Help Center.

Adjust your screen space

To adjust the screen space available for your main workspace, hide, display, or change the size of the main menu on the left.

  • To adjust the size of the main menu, hover between the menu and the workspace and drag the border left or right.
  • To collapse the menu entirely, click at the top. When collapsed, click to expand it again.
