  • To manage your user profile
  • To change your email address
  • To change your password
  • To enable multi-factor authentication

Note

You cannot change your email address or password in this page if you have logged in to the Megaport Portal using Google credentials. The Change Email and Change Password buttons are not available.

To manage your user profile

    The role associated with the logged in user is also displayed in the User Profile page, where the user is assigned one of the standard roles. For details, see Managing User Roles.

    Keep this screen open until you have entered the verification code.
  5. In the Verification Code field, enter the verification code that you received in the email to your new email address.

    Your email address is now updated. You need to log in again after changing your email address to continue working in the Megaport Portal.

Note

  • The original email address will not change until a valid New Email and Verification Code combination has been entered.
  • If the new email that is entered is already registered with Megaport against another account, it will not be accepted.

To change your password

  1. Choose User Profile under your user name on the dashboard.
  2. Click Change Password.
    The Change Password screen appears.
    Change password
  3. Specify the password details:

    • Old Password – Enter your current password.
    • New Password – Enter your new password.
    • Retype New Password – Enter your new password again to confirm.

      Note

      The Megaport Portal password policy includes minimum password complexity rules. Your new password must contain:

      • At least 8 characters
      • Uppercase characters (A-Z)
      • Lowercase characters (a-z)
      • Numbers (0-9)
      • At least one special character: ^ $ * . [ ] { } ( ) ? ” ! @ # % & / \ , > < ‘ : ; | _ ~ ` = + -

      A password strength estimator is used to prevent common, easily guessed passwords, for example Passw0rd. If you have met all complexity requirements and your password is still being rejected, the likely cause will be that the password is too common or easy to guess.

  4. Click Save.
    For more information, see Resetting Your Password.

Securing your account with multi-factor authentication

Multi-factor authentication provides an extra level of security for your account. We recommend that you use the Google Authenticator app.

To enable multi-factor authentication

  1. Choose User Profile under your user name on the dashboard.
  2. Click Enable Multi-factor Authentication.

  3. Scan the QR code with the authenticator app.

  4. Enter your account password.
  5. Enter the token generated by the authenticator app.
  6. Click Enable Multi-factor Authentication.
    After multi-factor authentication is enabled, you need to supply a valid token from the authenticator app every time you log in to the Megaport Portal, in addition to your email and password.
