Access Aconex via your company's network

Some organizations’ staff can access Aconex through their internal company networks, using their company credentials (SSO).

This article covers:

What is “accessing Aconex via my company’s network”?

Some organizations have arranged with Aconex to use Single Sign On (SSO) technology, which lets staff access Aconex using the same credentials they use to log into their company intranet or other networks.

What this means is that those companies’ employees don’t need to remember a separate Aconex login: when a person logs into the company network, they will be logged into Aconex automatically.

Can I use this feature?

Only organizations who have purchased this feature can use it. To find out if your organization’s subscribed, contact your Organization Administrator.

What credentials do I use to log in via my company’s network?

Aconex users in organizations that have had this feature enabled use their company network login details to access Aconex.

These are usually the credentials you use to get access to your work email, intranet, or shared corporate systems.

How do I log in using my company’s network?

If you’re new to Aconex, you’ll receive an activation email that contains a link. Click it and follow the prompts to log in. The full process is explained here.

If you’re already an Aconex user, you'll need to follow a new login process the next time you log into Aconex. See full details of this login process here.

What if my login doesn’t work?

If you’ve been directed to access Aconex via your company network, and your login details don’t work, contact your Organization Administrator.

As part of the setup process, you’ll be asked to enter your existing Aconex username and password. If you can’t remember those details, reset them instantly online.

Once you’re set up, Aconex will no longer request a password from you. Instead, you’ll always be redirected to your company login page to gain access to Aconex.

Do all users in my organization have to use SSO?

No. SSO authentication is granted as part of a role within Oracle Aconex and can be controlled individually for each user.

Can SSO be used with Aconex Global Login?

Yes. Aconex Global Login allows multiple Aconex user accounts across multiple organizations and instances to be accessed with a single username and password.
If these Aconex users are linked to Global Login first and then SSO enabled for those user accounts, the user will able to access all these user accounts with a single set of SSO credentials.
