1 Quick guide to setup the two step authentication

During recent years, the double authentication standard has managed to position itself as one of the better options to improve the security applied to user accounts in an easy way. Since version 6.0, Pandora FMS comes with this feature, using an integration of a Google solution called Google Authenticator.

1.1 Requirements

To use this feature, the administrator should have enabled it in the authentication section of the global setup.

Also, it'll be necessary to install the code generator application on a mobile device of your property. To know where and how you should download it, go here: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/1066447.

1.2 Activation

You will find the option in your user's setup options.

Upon clicking on it, a box with information about the feature should appear. Afterwards, click the continue button and accept the prompted dialog, you will reach the code generation step. This code will be the code you should have to introduce into the code generator application mentioned earlier.

There are two ways to create a new item on the application.

  • Manual Entry: You should introduce the code provided by Pandora FMS and the item name.
  • Scan Barcode: You should scan the QR code provided by Pandora FMS and the item will be created automatically.

When you have advanced to the next section, after confirming the new dialog, you will have to finalize the process by validating a code provided by the generator app.

If the code is valid, the setup will have ended. You can close the box and from there on double authentication will be required after logging on correctly into Pandora FMS.

If the code is invalid, you should make another attempt or restart the activation by simply closing the prompt box.

1.3 Deactivation

This is done simply by selecting the option to disable this feature in a box that should appear.
