Logging in to Xtendis requires a user name and password. This password needs to be set up when accessing Xtendis for the first time. You can also add a new password when you have forgotten the original one or update your existing password.
Note: This is not required when logging in using Single Sign-On (SSO). When using SSO, a central login account is used. Creating and changing the password is then done through the system in which this account is managed. Check with your system administrator for details.
This article describes how this is done.
