General Settings Tab


The General Settings tab has three sections: Folder sorting configuration, Link expiration settings for file, folder & album as well as Recycle bin configuration (Screenshot of this tab is shown above).


Folder sorting option:

You can sort the displayed folders on the tree structure present on the left-side panel of the Campus Folders & Files screen as well as on other screens where the folder tree structure is displayed. You can any of the three options: Manually organized, Alphanumeric & Create date.

  • Manually Organized: If you select this radio-button, then user can change the folder sort order manually using the option on the right-panel. Any newly created folder will appear at the bottom of the folder tree. User will be able to manually change the folder order on the folder tree by moving the folders up & down.

  • Alphanumeric: If you select this radio-button, the folder structure will appear one after the other according to the alphabetical order of the names of the folder i.e. folders with name starting with letter 'A' will appear first and folders with name starting with letter 'Z' will appear last.

  • Create Date: If you select this option folders will be sorted as per the date of creation. The most recently created folder will appear first in the folder tree.


Note: The folder sorting option here (in the Account settings screen) will override the folder sorting option on the Campus Folders & Files screen.


Set default link expiration time for file, folder & album:
 

You can enter the number of days, weeks, months or years, crossing which download link to access file, folder and album will expire. The entered number of days (or weeks, months, years) will be considered by the application as the default for Link Folders, Link Files & Share Album functionalities unless expiration date is set during individual link sharing process.  Individual link sharing expiration date will override the expiration date in settings.


Screenshot below displays the Set Expiration Date field on the 'Send folder link(s)' screen which will override the link expiration no. of days given in 'Account Settings' screen:


Recycle bin: 


Recycle bin can be operated from this screen. You can select either of the radio buttons Delete permanently or Move to recycle bin on deletion.

Password Settings Tab:


You can select the number of days after which the account log-in password expires or select to make the current password never expire. You can enable complex password and/or two step-authentication to force the user to enter a complex password and a PIN number to access the application.

  • Select the checkbox 'Require complex password' such that user has to set up a complex password to sign in to the application. The complex password will be enabled when user logs out and tries to sign in to the application next time. When the same user or other users tries to sign in to the same account (where complex password is enabled) application will ask the user to set up complex password. This password has to be 8+ characters, UPPERCASE should have number/special character.

  • Select the checkbox 'Require two-step authentication' such that user has to set up a complex password as well as PIN to sign in to the application. The two-step authentication will be enabled when user logs out and tries to sign in to the application next time. When the same user or other users tries to sign in to the same account (where two-step authentication is enabled) application will ask the user to set up complex password, a PIN (PIN entry screen appears after sign in screen as an intermediate screen before access the application) and security questions (in case user forgets password or PIN) through the My Profile screen. After setting up, user will enter the complex password and PIN to access the application.

Note: When user selects the checkbox 'Require two-step authentication', the checkbox 'Require complex password' becomes                     automatically selected (if it is not already selected previously).


  • In the end, after configuring the setup, click on [Save] button to save the settings.


Single Sign On (SSO) Tab:

Single sign-on (SSO) is a session and user authentication service that permits a user to use one set of login credentials (e.g., name and password) to access multiple applications. The service authenticates the end user for all the applications the user has been given rights to and eliminates further prompts when the user switches applications during the same session. On the back end, SSO is helpful for administering large user groups across multiple applications as adding/removing users from SSO automatically adds/removes their access across all connected applications.


ARC Facilities application will use the standard Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML 2.0), to ensure that our implementation of SSO integrates easily with any identity provider that supports SAML.


ARC Facilities will support Service Provider initiated SAML and also Identity Provider (IdP) initiated SAML. The IdP companies are Okta, OneLogin, Microsoft Azure etc.


Screenshot below displays the 'SSO settings' tab:


The client company admin (or ARC Internal team) will create an application (ARC Facilities) in IdP and connect the client AD server with the IdP. The SAML POST URL set up in IdP for ARC Facilities application is https://app.arcfacilities.co/Account/LoginViaSSO


After configuration in IdP is completed an XML file is generated from IdP. The XML file consists of Login URL, Certificate, Logout URL & other attributes (first name, last name, email of admin & AD group name). This info of this file is incorporated in ARC Facilities database table. The data from the XML is auto-populated in the SSO settings screen (screenshot shown above), although, the client admin can modify this info.


Prerequisite: 


The client admin needs to be registered as a normal account owner before setting up the SSO through the SSO settings screen. If client admin wants to enter/modify the data manually in SSO settings screen then he/she needs to do the following:

  • Click the [Upload] button to upload IdP SAML metadata (the XML file)
  • Map/enter the attributes like first name, last name, email ID & group name from IdP (these names should be same as what is there in IdP)
  • Enter the group name and click [Add] button. This group name must be same as that of the client AD group name in the IdP. Hence, all employee SSO users (under the same company of the admin user) logging in to ARC Facilities will be automatically added under this group.
  • Paste or enter the Identity provider sign in URL as provided from IdP (mandatory)

  • Paste or enter the Identity provider sign out URL as provided from IdP (optional)

  • Upload the X.509 certificate downloaded from the IdP

Hence, SSO setup is now complete. The employee users of the client company can now sign in to ARC Facilities through the SSO login screen. Refer to Sign in through SSO help file for how to login through SSO. In the end, after configuring the setup, click on [Save] button to save the settings.
