Accessing SteelCentral Aternity™

For locally defined users, a password must be at least 8 characters long, with at least one uppercase (A-Z), one lowercase (a-z), one number (0-9) and one non-alphanumeric character (like @, #, $). The system encrypts all locally managed passwords.

If you are an administrator logging in for the first time on a newly installed Aternity on-premise system, use the default username administrator and default password Q!w2e3r4. Then we recommend you immediately change the password for this account.

By default the system has an automatic timeout, logging you out if the session has been idle for more than 3.5 hours. An Administrator of Aternity can change this value if required.
