Account Management

Click your username in the top-right corner of the banner menu and then select Account Management from the dropdown menu for access. Use this page to review and manage settings related to your actual account with Distil.

User Management

The Distil portal offers basic user management. There are two types of users:

  • Account level access
  • Domain level access

Within each user type, you can specify whether or not the user has administrative access or statistics access. Statistics users may not view configuration information for any domains.

  • Account Admin users can modify all settings within the account.
  • Account Statistics users can view all reports within the account.
  • Domain Admin users can modify all settings for any included domains.
  • Domain Statistics users can view all reports for any included domains.

The User Management table provides a high-level view of all users associated with your account, including:

  • Username/Email
  • Account- or Domain-level Access
  • Two-factor Authentication status

Account admins are able to select a specific user record from the table to update that user’s access or remove the user from your account.

To add a new user to your account:

  1. Select Add User.
  2. Enter the user’s email address.
  3. Set the user’s access level (the choices are entire account or a specific domain).
  4. Set the user role to either Admin, Statistics, or No Access.
    NOTE: No Access is only available for domain-level access. It blocks the user from accessing domain information in the portal.
  5. Select Add User to create the user. A confirmation email with login instructions is sent to the user.

Password Protection Settings

Enable password protection settings to heighten the security level of passwords associated with your Distil account. This tool is especially useful when aligning password settings with your organization’s security policies.

To manage the password protection settings:

  1. Toggle Enable Advanced Password Controls to On.
  2. Configure additional password settings.
    • Password Age – Number of days before a password is considered expired.
    • Failed Login Attempts Lockout – Number of failed authentication attempts before a user’s access is locked.
    • Lockout Period for Failed Login Attempts – Number of minutes a user’s access remains locked after too many failed attempts. This is conditionally enabled when Failed Login Attempts Lockout is Yes.
    • Password History – Number of previously used passwords that cannot be reused.
    • Disable Inactive Users – Number of days of no activity before a user’s access is locked.
  3. Select Save Settings.
