User Profile and Assets¶
Users can access their profile information and data assets in the Account section. To do so, click on the user icon at the top bar:
By default, the Profile tab will be selected, showing the user account data.
Account name and email: they can only be changed in the administration page.
Language: English, Spanish and German languages are available for the user interface, and the first two for the user manual. The language option can be changed in this tab.
Last activity: shows the date of the last user login.
In the same page, users can select the Projects tab to see a list of projects accessible to them within their company, and open a selected one or create a new one.
In order to delete a project, it is necessary to open it first and then use the delete menu option to remove it.
The Scenarios tab shows a searchable list of all the user scenarios. Remember that each user has his/her own scenarios, which are not shared with other users.
With the links on the right, the scenario description files (JSON) can be downloaded, as well as the results calculated in the scenario (Resistance Map, Corridor, Paths).
The same page shows the list of project with links to download the full set of scenario results.
Two Factor Authentication¶
To improve access control, individual users can now activate a Two Factor Authentication login process, which will add an additional verification step with a registered mobile device.
You can find this new option in the Security tab of your User Profile.
When clicking on the Enable TFA button, the page will show a form with a QR code. Authenticator apps in your mobile device (like Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, etc. You need to install one if you don’t already have it) can register Pathfinder by scanning this code.
The authenticator app will then provide a 6-digit code that you should enter in the “Verification PIN” input box to complete the activation by clicking on the Register Two-Factor App button.
Don’t forget to save in a secure place (like a password manager) your recovery codes, which will be needed in case you need to recover access.
After the activation, when a user logs in, an additional step will require him/her to enter the 6-digit code generated at that time by the registered authentication app:
Two Factor Authentication (TFA) in Pathfinder is not available for Single Sign On users, since in that case authentication is done by their own company service, which may already include TFA.
