When the administrator account was initially created for you, an email was automatically sent to you.
It would look like this:
- If the account was defined to use two factor security with x509 certificate, the email will include the certificate as attachment. Save the certificate on your PC in e.g. the “My Documents” folder.
- The email will include a link to the GateManager’s DNS name and/or IP address. Click the link to connect to the GateManager. Bookmark the link in your browser.
- The email is sent with the GateManager server as sender, while the name in the greetings section indicates the GateManager administrator account that created your account. If you have not been notified about the password associated with your account, you will need to contact this person.
Follow the link in the email to open the GateManager login screen, and browse for the certificate you just saved.
Note: The GateManager administrator portal requires minimum MS Internet Explorer 9, Apple Safari, Firefox or Google Chrome.
In your very first login, you will see an empty tree. You should consider changing your password under My Account. Note that this will make the GateManager server issue a new email with a new certificate. Your existing certificate will subsequently be invalidated.
All items are as default displayed in the tree view.
In order to hide items in the tree view, you can click on the icons above the tree. When an icon has a blue background it means the item is activated and the associated objects will be shown in the tree.
The icon mouse-over message will indicate the function of an item.
The settings of the icons will be saved in a cookie on your PC and your tree-view will be restored when you login again.
This will allow you to customize your favorite view according to the functions you use most often.
