Login with your Google or Microsoft account if your Federated Directory is integrated with one of these.

Enter companies short name

Your companies login page will only show you the authentication methods available in your company. It is located at:<your-company-name>

Here is an example: where expresso is the short name of the company.

When logging in, always make sure that you use your company’s login URL and verify that both the login URL and your company’s logo are on the login page. If the administrator of your company has not uploaded a company logo, you will see a default logo provided by Federated Directory.

If you are on the wrong login page, click the SWITCH COMPANY button at the bottom of the page or just change the URL in the address bar of your browser.

Two account types

Federated Directory supports a single sign-on login process, meaning you can use your Google account, Microsoft account or any other company account to login to Federated Directory. To do this, click button LOGIN WITH GOOGLE or LOGIN WIH MICROSOFT or LOGIN WITH SAML button. It is possible that not all the buttons are visible on the login landing page. This depends on the way your Federated Directory tenant is configured. Take as an example, page below, which has only Microsoft authentication enabled.

We also support the usage of isolated Federated Directory accounts, which is not associated with any Cloud or identity service. You can use it by clicking LOGIN WITH CREDENTIALS.
