Logging in and out

This topic describes how AppViz (SaaS) users can log in, change passwords, and log out again.

Note: For details about first time access for the administrator, see Admin first time logging in.

Log into AppViz (SaaS)

Log into AppViz (SaaS) using the Account ID (Tenant ID) provided with your purchase.

For tenant login without Single Sign-On (SSO), you will also need your AppViz (SaaS) Username and Password.

Tip for IT department: To configure SSO user authentication see Manage Single Sign-On (SSO)

Do the following:

  1. Navigate to:

    Region Link
    US https://us.app.algosec.com/appviz
    EMEA https://eu.app.algosec.com/appviz
    ANZ https://anz.app.algosec.com/appviz

    If you have already accessed the Login window using your device, skip to the next step. Otherwise, if this is your first-time logging in, enter your Account ID. Click Next.

  2. Log in:

    • Tenants with SSO: Click Login with SSO.

    • Tenants without SSO: Enter your AppViz (SaaS) Username and Password. Click Login.

    Tip: To speed up your AppViz (SaaS) login, copy the login URL for your region into your browser address bar or save as a browser bookmark, replacing <tenantID> with your own account ID number. For example:

    • With SSO: Immediately logs you in to AppViz (SaaS).

    • Without SSO: Sends you directly to the login page for that account ID.

  3. If this is your first time logging in with Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), the interface will guide you to set up your MFA device and login using MFA for AppViz (SaaS) for the first time. For details, see First login as MFA user .

    Note: MFA is not available when logging in with SSO.
