qibb go! Portal overview¶
The qibb go! Portal is the central web-based user interface for accessing all q.air applications.
qibb uses state of the art security features, such as IAM (Identity and Access Management) and SSO (Single-Sign On). External access to the qibb go! Portal and all included applications are always secured via HTTPS.
As part of the IAM, each user account has predefined assigned roles and rights. This ensures that users can only access permitted functions and applications and only see relevant information. User accounts are created by the qibb go! COT (Cloud Operations Team), depending on customer requirements.
By using SSO, each user only has to sign in once. Usually, users sign in via the qibb go! Portal and access each individual application afterwards. Alternatively, users can also open applications directly, as each application will display an individual sign-in page before it can be accessed.
By default, users are automatically logged out if they are inactive for more than 5 minutes. This value is customizable according to customer requirements.
Accessing the qibb go! Portal¶
qibb go! officially supports and is optimized for current versions of Google Chrome. It is recommended to only use this browser when working with qibb.
