1) To Log in to the Admin Console for the First Time
2) Policies and Applications Work Together
Log in to the admin console for the first time
Contained with your welcome email from Strivacity you will find the following information that will enable you to get started.
The first step is logging into the Strivacity admin console:
Finding the admin console
The URL to the admin console will be in the welcome email and it will be in the format of:
For example, if your company is called Brandtegrity and you decided to call your Strivacity instance that, and you decided for us to provision it in Europe for you it will be: https://brandtegrity.eu.strivacity.com/admin
The welcome email also contains a username and password for accessing the admin console. We recommend that you change these credentials as soon as you log in for the first time by following the steps in Changing the Admin Password.

Understanding how policies and applications work together
All Strivacity capabilities are based around a simple policy framework and the assignment of policies to an application.
What is a policy?
A policy is simply a group of reusable common settings that can be assigned to an application. This means that you can create a single policy and reuse it by applying it to one or more applications.
Reusing policies and assigning them to multiple applications saves you time and reduces risk through misconfiguration, but be careful when editing a policy when deployed in production. Any changes you save will take effect immediately and will affect all users using those applications (that the policy is assigned to!)
Strivacity has eight major types of policy and each provides a distinct set of capabilities. Each is discussed in depth within this guide.
1) Adaptive MFA Policy
2) Self-Service Policy
3) Identity Verification
4) Social and External Login Providers
5) Lifecycle Event Hooks
6) Consent Management Policy
7) Notification Policy
8) Branding Policy
What is an application?
An Application represents the secure and trusted relationship between your customer-facing portal or application and Strivacity.
Once you have configured your web portal or application to trust Strivacity (more on how to do that later), you then simply assign configuration or policies to that application for your settings to take effect (which they do immediately). It's that easy!
The diagram below illustrates the relationship between your web portal/application, an application and policies.
