Product: Nexternal

Before any users can access Nexternal, your administrator must set them up and assign access levels within the Nexternal application itself. Users must also be granted access in Foundry to the Nexternal > Login page on the navigation Menu.

When a user logs into Nexternal for the first time, Foundry remembers their credentials and they will be able to launch application components directly via Nexternal menu or icons.

Following are the user management options and settings for creating a user, and/or for granting an existing user with access to Nexternal in Foundry.

NOTE: This document assumes that your tenant has a Nexternal license. Also, these changes can only be made by your tenant's Foundry Security Administrator.

Copy User

Chances are you already have one or more active users set up for Nexternal access in Foundry.

The easiest way to create a new Foundry user is to make a copy of an existing user that has the preferred authorizations for Nexternal. The copied user may be equipped with access to other Foundry applications, such as Pack & Ship or Pulse.

Assign Role

You can add Nexternal access to an existing Foundry user. However, before you try to configure authorizations from scratch (manual authorization), check to see if a Nexternal role has been created for the purpose you intend, and then assign that role to the user instead.

Settings > Security > Users and Roles > Users > Choose a User > Roles

Manual Authorization

You can add Nexternal access by changing authorization for each user.

Settings > Security > Users and Roles > Users > Choose a User > Authorizations > Nexternal 1.0

Since most Nexternal user settings are configured within the Nexternal application itself, Foundry Nexternal authorization categories are typically preset to Allow or Not Specified.
