3.01.5 Using Partner Applications with a Single Sign on System
If you login to LabArchives through your institution Single Sign on System, you may need to create a password token for external applications. A password token is a secure string of characters that works like a password for a limited amount of time. Password tokens are used in Folder Monitor for Mac, Folder Monitor for Windows, Microsoft Office Plug in for Mac, Microsoft Office Plug In for Windows, FloJo for Mac, FloJo for Windows, GraphPad Prism, and Vernier Logger Pro.
How to Create a Password Token
1. Sign into LabArchives via the web browser, click your name at the top right and select “LA App Authentication”
2. The “Password Token for External Applications” screen will appear. You can use the email address and password token to login to the external application.
Note: The password is valid for 1 hour and you can always make a new password token. You will need to create a password token every time you login to an external application unless you turn on auto login.
