Getting started

The Web Portal is part of a web application that is displayed in a web browser. You can use the Web Portal to request and cancel products, and to renew current requests with limited lifetimes. If you own the necessary entitlements, you are able to approve requests and cancellations, perform attestation, view rule violations, and approve or deny exception approvals. Furthermore, you can change your central password and show statistics.

Depending on your role and level of security, you can use the Web Portal to:

  • Request access to resources

  • Track the progress of requests

  • Approve or deny requests made by your employees

  • Subscribe to reports

  • Manage rule violations

  • View reports and statistics on resources or roles assigned to you or your employees

Tips for using the Web Portal
  • Enable JavaScript in your browser for the Web Portal to work.

  • You can configure and extend the Web Portal using the Web Designer.

  • A minimum screen resolution of 1280x1024 pixels is recommended with at least 16-bit color in order to optimize the user interface graphics. A display size of at least 9.7 inches is recommended for mobile displays, for example, when using a tablet.

  • Supported browsers:

    • Internet Explorer 11 or later

    • Firefox (release channel)

    • Chrome (release channel)

    • Safari (current version)

    • Microsoft Edge (release channel)
