Initial Setup How to Get Started by Setting up a Tenant in AuthAnvil
1 - Sign Up
The first step to a successful evaluation is to visit the AuthAnvil website at www.authanvil.com/try-it-free and sign up. The individual that signs up for the evaluation will be the primary site administrator. The only information we require to start the evaluation is a work email, first and last name, company name, where you would like your service to be hosted (there are currently two options – US or Europe), and the desired company URL. All AuthAnvil tenant URL's follow this form: - company.my.authanvil.com OR company.my.authanvil.eu - depending on the service location selected. When choosing the URL, we will automatically notify you whether the requested URL is available or not. Note: The URLs are not currently customizable and must follow the above format.
Once you complete your information and click on Create My AuthAnvil Service, you will see the following screen:
2 - Verify via email
Concurrently the individual signing up for the evaluation will receive the following Welcome email. For the best experience please open the email in a browser (preferably Chrome) for the “Let's Get Started” link to work.
You will then be redirected to the welcome portal:
3 - Setup your password
Once you have verified your email, from the Welcome portal online, click on the “Let’s Get Started” button to be redirected to the password setup screen:
Click on the "Save Password and continue" button, which will take you here to set up two factor authentication.
4 - Select your authentication device
Simply select the device you wish to set up with a 2FA token and click “Next”.
5 - Start your evaluation
After you have approved your first authentication request you will see the following screen:
At this point you have successfully signed up for the evaluation and have a unique tenant license, set up a password, configured a device for 2FA and are now ready to login to the evaluation. Selecting the “Nice. Let’s Move On” button will immediately launch you into the evaluation.
This is the screen you will see after selecting the button:
