Login

WebEA websites are configured to allow access to one or more Enterprise Architect models, each of which can be configured independently to only grant access to users with valid logon credentials. WebEA user validation supports two forms of security: 1) an access code and 2) standard Enterprise Architect model security. These two validation methods can be used independently or in combination in each model.

Prerequisites

Users of WebEA will need to be advised of their login credentials for each model, which will include:

  • An access code, or
  • A user ID and password, or
  • Possibly all three

This data will be provided to you by your Web Administrator or by the Project Manager responsible for the model.

Logging In

The first page that is displayed in WebEA is the 'Login' page, which lists the models available to you.

Select the model you want to open, then click or tap on either the Mobile, Tablet, or Desktop button. This option determines whether the Browser and Properties View will be enabled by default.

If the model offers Windows Authentication then an attempt will be made to log in as the current Windows. If it succeeds, the user will logged in. If it fails, the alternative login methods will be made available.

If access to your model requires only an access code, then the 'Login' page prompts you for this.

Note:

  • The red asterix (*) denotes a mandatory field.
  • Access Codes are not required for Windows Authentication or OpenID authentication.

If User Security has been applied to the model, the 'Login' page prompts you for your user ID and password.

If the model requires both an access code and a user id/password, the 'Login' page prompts for both together:

This feature is available from Enterprise Architect Release 14.1 and Pro Cloud Server Release 2.5 build 22.

If the model offers OpenID authentication then the 'Login' page will show a 'Login with OpenID' button. click this button to be redirected to the OpenID Server Authentication page. After authenticating with OpenId the browser will automatically return to WebEA and log the user in.

If the user is already authenticated with OpenID, the OpenID website might not be displayed, and the user will simply be logged in.

If the model is configured to also allow manual login then a link is provided to 'Switch to Manual Login'. If the option 'Restrict access to Windows & OpenID users only' is enabled then the option to switch to manual login will not be available.

If you do not have the authorization data, click or tap on the Back button to go back and select another model.

Otherwise, type in your access code and/or user ID and password, and click on the Login button.
