SMS provider

For Multi-factor authentication, you need an SMS provider set up.

The configured SMS provider is responsible for sending SMS notifications to users when they log in using SMS as a second factor.

ASPSMS is a third-party SMS provider that you can use for Multi-factor authentication.

In a few minutes, you can have the ASPSMS integration set up. Do the following:

  1. Select ASPSMS as your provider.
  2. Create an ASPSMS account at the following link: (https://www.aspsms.com/en/registration/).
  3. From the API Credentials page in ASPSMS, copy the User key and paste it here.
  4. From the API Credentials page in ASPSMS, copy the API password and paste it here.

The text of the authentication SMS is the following on the user side: [6-digit code] is your authentication code.

User key

User key is a transaction credential that you need for setting up the integration. Therefore, it is a mandatory field. This is a unique, unchangeable identifier generated by ASPSMS.

API password

API password is a transaction credential that you need for setting up the integration. Therefore, it is a mandatory field.

This is a password generated by ASPSMS, that you can re-generate. When re-generating the API password, do not forget to update it in Identity Cloud as well.

For security reasons, the API password is a hidden password, represented by asterisks in Identity Cloud.

Sender name

Optionally, you can set up the Sender name so your users know the SMS is coming from you.

The maximum length is 11 characters.

See the restrictions of ASPSMS for the Sender name in their FAQ. ASPSMS calls the Sender name originator.
