Guardian Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

For customers with OAuth 2.0 authentication, in Dataloy VMS, MFA can be set up with Auth0's Guardian app. This is an intuitive MFA solution that is easy to set up and use.

If you are uncertain if your VMS is set up with OAuth 2.0 authentication, please let us know, and we can check it for you. Send an email to

Dataloy will enable MFA on the installation/environment level forcing all users to log in using MFA in the environment it is configured for.

Once activated and configured, the users will be sent a "push-notification" that must be approved in the app. Simply click the "Allow" button, and you are securely logged in.

Setting up the Guardian app for the first time:

  1. Log in using the system's "web" login screen.

    (The URL for this will be provided in case you use the Java version of the VMS)

  2. Follow the instructions on the screen to install and configure the app.

  3. You will scan the QR code shown on the screen with the app, so camera permissions on the phone must be permitted.

  4. When finishing the set-up, a "push-notification" will be sent to your phone.

  5. Click "Allow" to securely complete the configuration.

  6. Log in to the application:

The Java-based version of the VMS:

  1. Log out of the web-based version, as the configuration is now complete.

  2. Start the system and log into the application as you normally do.

  3. Click "Allow" when asked on your phone, and you are securely logged in to the Java-based VMS.

The web-based version of the VMS:

  1. You are already logged in and can continue your work.
