What credentials should I use to log in?

What credentials should I use to log in?

You use the same KACE SMA authorized administrator or user credentials you would use to log in to the appliance.

Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) is supported for both administrators and end users, allowing stronger security for users logging into the KACE GO app. You can enable and configure 2FA for a specific user in the KACE SMA Administrator Console, but not in KACE GO.

KACE GO allows you to specify the 2FA token during login and enables access to the KACE SMA only when a valid 2FA token is provided.

You can also configure KACE GO to authenticate users using a third-party authentication tool. This mechanism uses the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) XML-based protocol that involves transferring security tokens between identity and service providers. When SAML is enabled and configured on the appliance, you can log in using this single sign-on method. When SAML is enabled on at least one organization, the Local Login option appears on the login screen. If you turn local login off, the app displays a browser window to let you log in through SAML. It is recommended that the user logs in to the appliance's Administrator Console, and to have an Administrator enable the Mobile Device Access option for the account.

For more information these features, see the appliance Administrator Guide.
