    If using the AveriSource Platform 2.1 release, Windows Authentication has been added as an authentication type. Click Choose Authentication Type to proceed.


    The Windows Authentication option allows the use of Active Directory credentials thereby eliminating the task of managing users locally. The second option is to create and manage users local to the AveriSource platform.

Local User Management

With local user management, administrators can create, manage, and authenticate users directly with the AveriSource Platform. Follow the steps below to set up local user management.

1. The Org Admin profile requires a valid email address and a password that meets all the criteria.

  1. With successful account creation, the AveriSource Platform user interface, specifically the Organization Dashboard, is launched to begin creating projects.

  1. Org Admins can now create projects by adding the relevant application source and start building an AveriSource Inventory within the Organization Dashboard.


Adding users with local user management 

  1. To add users to the AveriSource Platform with Local User Management, the Org Admin can click the Invite New User button under the Team menu under Organization Dashboard. 

  1. The details of the invited user including email, company name and user type are provided. Click Invite User and the new user will be invited via an email link. 


  2. Once the new user is setup, access to further projects in the AveriSource platform can be edited by clicking on Edit User


  3. Select the User Type for each available project.


Windows Authentication

Starting with the AveriSource Platform 2.1, Windows Authentication has been added to simplify user management using Active Directory. Follow the steps below to configure Windows Authentication.

  1. Choose Windows Authentication and link with an Active Directory account. Click on Link Account, then log in with Active Directory credentials.

  1. Create the Org Admin. After the Active Directory credentials are entered, discovered Name and Email Id are populated. Complete the Company and Role fields.

  1. On confirmation of the account details, a new Org Admin user is created with no password and the account is ready for use.


Note: Now that the users are created with Active Directory authentication, the AveriSource Org Admin will not have a role to play with user settings/management. This is evident from the screenshot below, which does not display “User Settings” as an option. Also, there will be no “PIN” column under Team Management. The role of the Org Admin in this case is now restricted to inviting other users to the AveriSource platform with relevant role.



Adding users with Windows Authentication 

Follow these steps to add users to the AveriSource Platform with Windows Authentication.

  1. The Org Admin invites new users to access the AveriSource Platform from the Organization Dashboard -> Team –>Invite User.

  1. The Org Admin can now specify the User Type as “User” which lets the user log in with his Windows Active Directory credentials.

  1. The new user gets a link to connect via email to the AveriSource platform. The user can choose to login with their Windows account as shown below.


If the user doesn’t have access, they are prompted with the screen below and they may request access.

  1. When the administrator approves the access request, the user will receive an email. The user needs to click on the link in the email and then enter Active Directory credentials on the login screen. On the next screen, the user will click on the Associate Account button to login to the AveriSource platform.


Note: Because Windows Authentication stores credentials in the browser, the user must close the browser after logging out. We recommend using a separate browser profile for the AveriSource Platform to avoid having to close unrelated browser tabs after logging out.
