Logging in to OpenX for the first time

The first time you log in to the system, you use the email address associated with your OpenX user account, and the temporary password you received in an auto-generated email message. After you log in with these details, you are prompted to change your password. You can use the new password for subsequent OpenX login attempts. In addition, OpenX requires you to change your password every 180 days.

  1. Do one of the following:

    • Open the auto-generated email message you received from OpenX , and click the link for the OpenX URL.

    • Open your web browser and enter your OpenX URL. For example, enter:

      myopenxaccount.com

  2. In the OpenX Log In screen, type in your login details.

    1. In the Email field, type in your email address. This is the email address associated with your OpenX user account. For example, type in:

      email@mycompany.com

    2. In the Password field, type in your temporary password. This is located in the email you received from the OpenX system.

  3. Click Submit. This displays the Change Your Password screen.

  4. Type in your Current Password; then type in your New Password and confirm it.
