This article provides instructions on how to switch on Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) within your Lighthouse instance.
Please Note: If your organisation uses single sign-on (SSO) to access Lighthouse, MFA is already configured. The steps listed below walk you through how to configure MFA for users that log in using the ‘Login ID’ and ‘Password’ option.
1. Log in to your Lighthouse instance.
2. Select the settings cog.
3. Select ‘Administration’.
4. Select ‘System’.
5. Locate the tab titled ‘Security’.
6. Within the security tab, scroll down to the section titled ‘Password Login’.
7. Within that section locate ‘Multi-Factor Authentication’.
8. Select ‘Enforced’.
9. OPTIONAL: you may wish to ‘Allow deferral (logins)’. This refers to the number of times users can login before MFA becomes mandatory i.e. if you key in ‘4’ they will be able to defer MFA for 4 more logins before it becomes compulsory.
10. OPTIONAL: you may wish to exclude certain groups from having to use MFA. To do this, select the nominated group from the drop-down list next to ‘Users without MFA’.
11. Click the ‘save’ button in the top right corner (you may need to scroll up to the top of the page).
12. Once configured, the next time users login using the ‘Login ID’ and ‘Password’ option, they will be prompted with instructions on how to enable MFA to access Lighthouse.
