By default, Geneious Biologics allows you to set a password and use that password to sign in. However, we do also offer alternative methods of authentication. If you or some of your organization's users already have an account with one of the SSO providers mentioned below, you can choose to sign in to Geneious Biologics with those credentials instead.
For more information about how to enable SSO for your organization, see our instructions below.
Logging in with a Microsoft account
Whether you have a personal Microsoft account or a work/school account, you can use that account to log in to Geneious Biologics by clicking the 'Sign in with Microsoft' button (highlighted in red below). Clicking on this button will redirect you to a Microsoft website that will then either ask you to log in to your Microsoft account (and/or choose which account to use if you have more than one), or if/when you are logged in then it will ask you to grant consent to Geneious Biologics to use limited information from your user profile.
When you have granted consent (this will generally be a one-time procedure unless we require additional permissions in future or you change to a different account), you will be redirected back to Geneious Biologics and logged in to the application.
If you are unable to log in via your Microsoft account, it may be due to one of the following reasons:
- Microsoft single sign-on has not been enabled for your organization by the Geneious Biologics support team. Please contact your administrator or the support team if you require this to be enabled.
- You have not yet activated your Geneious Biologics account. This may be either because your account has not yet been created (in which case you should contact your account administrator), or you have not activated your account using the link that was sent to you via email when your account was first created.
- Your Microsoft account's email address does not match (case insensitively) your Geneious Biologics email address. This is the only way we can verify that your Microsoft account has the authority to log in to Geneious Biologics.
- Your Microsoft account administrator may need to explicitly grant you access to the 'Geneious Biologics' application, under 'Enterprise applications' in the Azure AD console.
If you have ruled out the above reasons and are still unable to log in with your Microsoft account, please contact support with details of what you are experiencing when attempting to log in.
Enabling SSO for your organization
Enabling SSO allows you to centralise authentication and leverage any additional security features an SSO provider might provide (such as multi-factor authentication) by using that provider to authenticate with Geneious Biologics.
Currently we support:
- Microsoft accounts (Azure Active Directory)
If you are an administrator for your organization and would like to enable your organization's users to use single-sign on, please contact us to enable this feature. Please also specify whether you would like single sign-on to be mandatory for all users or if you would prefer it to be optional.
If you have any specific requirements that aren't mentioned in this article, or wish to use a provider or protocol that isn't currently supported, please let us know, as we are actively looking to expand our single sign-on capabilities where possible.
Adding New Users
Users will not be able to log in via SSO until they have been invited to join your organisation in Geneious Biologics. This allows organisation admins to delegate licenses. For more information, see our User Management article.
