Creating a Support Center Account
In order to comment on an article, submit a support ticket, or post in the Community, users must be signed in to the Support Center with an OnBoard ID. For more information regarding the OnBoard ID, see this article. Signing up is a quick and painless process with just a few steps to complete. Let's get started!
NOTE: If you're an OnBoard customer, you can use the same OnBoard ID used to access your organization(s).
1. If you do not have an OnBoard Id you can use this link to create a new one : https://auth.passageways.com/account/register
2. Fill out your profile information and then select 'Sign Up'.
Why do I get an 'The given email is already in use.' when I try to create an OnBoard ID? This error occurs because you have an existing OnBoard account using this email address, and therefore cannot use it to create your OnBoard ID.
4. Activation is required at this point. Check the email you just entered for the activation link.
5. Activate your OnBoard ID account by clicking the link in the activation email.
6. Log in to OnBoard using your newly created OnBoard ID by entering a password and confirming, or choose an existing account to link.
If you are usually signed in to a Google or Windows Live account, you will want to consider linking your OnBoard ID to one of these accounts for ease of access. For example, if you are signed in to Gmail and have your OnBoard ID linked to the Gmail account you're signed in to, you can immediately sign in to OnBoard, and thus the Help Center, by simply selecting the Google authentication provider. Please see this article for more information on linking and unlinking accounts to the OnBoard ID account.
