Configure the Shape of your Organization in Aternity

As an Administrator of Aternity in your organization, you can configure the system to reflect the shape of your organization:

  • Use Managed Applications to view, configure, or add applications to be managed by Aternity, which adds more performance monitoring for those applications.

    Add a Windows application, a web application or a mobile app to monitor their performance and usage

    See Add or View Managed Applications for Enhanced Monitoring.

  • Use License Provisioning to limit the number of allowed devices reporting to Aternity, by controlling the Aternity device licenses, or you can manually allocate a license to a specific user/device.

    Types of Aternity licenses depending on the type of reporting device

    See Manage, Allocate or Limit the Licenses for Monitored Devices (License Provisioning).

  • An Administrator of Aternity can access Users/Groups to view, create and edit usernames to access the system with varying permissions, depending on their role in the company, to allow a user to view dashboards or perform basic or advanced configuration.

    See View the Users of Aternity.

  • Single Sign-On (SSO) allows you to bypass Aternity's sign in screen, by authenticating just once with your enterprise's chosen identity provider (IdP). Every time you access Aternity, it automatically reroutes you to the IdP, and then after authentication, it automatically routes you back to your Aternity home page as a signed in user. As such, the IdP manages the entire authentication process, which can include two-factor authentication, biometrics, or a simple password, hence Aternity does not store any passwords in the system.

    Access your Aternity homepage using SSO

    See Integrate Single Sign-On (SSO) Access to Aternity.

  • You can connect Aternity to your Microsoft Active Directory (AD), so that usernames defined in the AD can also be usernames to sign in to Aternity. Their usernames and passwords are managed in the AD only.

    Connect the enterprise LDAP directory to use network usernames and passwords

    See Connect Aternity to your Active Directory (LDAP).

  • Use the Location Mapping screen to manually configure location names to be different from its Site name in Microsoft Active Directory, or to manually assign a city, state, country, region, or coordinates for each location. See Configure Business Locations (Site-Based Location Mapping).
