Xperience Portal

This page discusses Xperience Portal administration (available at https://xperience-portal.com). To prepare your project:

Use the Dashboard application to see the information about your project, including the region where your application is deployed (service region), service plan, project expiration date, and project GUID.

Access Xperience Portal projects

To access Xperience Portal, you need to receive an invitation to a specific Xperience Portal project. Kentico sends the invitation to join the project for the first project user, and you can send further invitations from the Xperience Portal, see Invite a new user to a project.

Access your Xperience Portal project:

  1. Select the link in the email invitation.
  2. Accept the Terms of Service.
  3. Set a password. You will use the email and password to access all projects you were invited to.
  4. Set up the Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) in Xperience Portal:
    1. Use One-Time Passwords (OTP) with your preferred authenticator application.
    2. After you set up the authenticator, a recovery code is displayed. Copy this code and store it somewhere safe, as it can be used to access the portal in case you lose the device used as the second factor.

You now have access to your Xperience Portal project.

Contact Kentico support if you have issues with accessing your Xperience Portal project.
