Login

The customer self-care interface login.

Access web self-care as a customer. After you defined the credentials, you can log in to the self-care interface on behalf of the customer. Click Login Login to access it in one of the modes:

  • Log in using the assigned role – this mode appears only if you defined a new access role for the customer. You log in to the self-care with the same permissions that the customer currently has. This comes useful if you need to check the customer’s access level.

  • Log in using the default role – you can log in to the self-care interface with the default access role even if the customer now has a different role assigned. This may be useful for troubleshooting or if you assist the customer with their configuration.

The administrator can automatically log in to any custom self-care portal with just a single click right from the PortaBilling web interface. There is no need to contact the customer for the portal password or to store it with the portal URL for future use. This saves troubleshooting time and enables the administrator to assist customers faster. The administrator can see all custom self-care portals that are available for a specific customer role by clicking on the arrow arrow of the login button of the login button. The administrator can log in either with a customer role or with the full access option.

The administrator can also log in as one of the customer individuals.

Allow access only from trusted IP addresses

Link copied to clipboard

This ensures that the customer accesses the self-care interface only from physical locations that you define. For example, you can specify IP addresses that belong to your network. If the customer tries to log in from outside your network, PortaBilling® denies that access and the customer cannot log in.

Use these formats to permit access from specific IP addresses or networks:

  • A single IP address: 10.10.10.1

  • A network in IP prefix (slash) notation: 192.168.192.0/24

  • An IP address and a netmask: 192.168.192.0/255.255.255.0

You can enter multiple definitions, with one starting on a new line and ending with a semicolon.

API token access
