Configure the Shape of your Organization in Aternity

As an Administrator of Aternity in your organization, you can configure Aternity 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.

  • The License Calculator shows the number of license units you need to monitor your end user devices (reporting to Aternity) or backend servers (reporting to Aternity APM).

    Types of Aternity licenses depending on the type of reporting device

    See Calculate License Units to Purchase.

  • An Administrator of Aternity can access Users/Groups to view, create and edit usernames to access Aternity 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) brings the most secure access to Aternity by bypassing Aternity's sign in screen, and authenticating with your enterprise's chosen identity provider (IdP) just once using passwords, two-factor authentication (2FA), or even biometrics. Every time you access Aternity as an SSO user, it automatically reroutes you securely to the IdP, and then after authentication, it routes you back to your Aternity home page as a signed in user. SSO uses the secure SAML 2.0 protocol to delegate the entire authentication process to the IdP.

    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).

  • With Site to Location file, you can configure site names to be different from those saved in the Active Directory, or manually assign a city, state, country, region, or coordinates for each location. With Subnet to Site file, you can configure site names using the subnet of the device. Active Directory applies to Windows physical devices, virtual app server sessions (like Citrix XenApp), and Virtual Desktops; whereas MAC, mobile devices and RDP sessions use the subnet ranges (Subnet to Site file). MAC, mobile, and RDP sessions retrieve their Business Location names always only from the Subnet to Site CSV file and not from the Active Directory, regardless of the method you use. See Configure Business Locations (Site-Based Location Mapping).

  • As a service provider you can use Aternity on-premise to offer flexible performance monitoring services to multiple customers (tenants).
