Your first order of business when opening the POS application is logging in. EVA supports several methods of logging in, we will walk you through them one by one.
- Username and password
- Identification PIN
By default, POS will show Username, QR-code, and Other. If you're using a production build, Other will not be available unless it is configured to be.
This login method requires you to specify your EVA login credentials (username can be substituted with your e-mail address).
Adding new users can be done via the Employees chapter on Admin Suite.
Selecting the QR-code login option will display a QR-code on your screen.
There are two options of logging in using QR-code:
- Option 1: Scan the displayed QR-code via the Companion or POS App (this will only work if you are already logged in on the respective App and your session is active).
- Option 2: Use your handheld scanner (if configured) to scan your personal identification QR.
Check out the documentation on identification PIN to know more.
The Other tab contains any OpenID login options you might have configured. On test environments, it also contains the New Black login option. Which is most definitely the sickest login option around, but that one is only for us.
The login flow
The login flow is determined based on whether it's your first-time login attempt or not.
If it's not your first time, you will be directly routed to the main login screen.
If it's your first-time login, you will be prompted with a series of screens to set up your POS environment. Those are as follows:
Input your EVA endpoint.
Select the desired Organization unit you'll be using your POS for. The list of organization units you get here is based on your configured organization units.
Input fields based on your Live Guard configuration (this tab will be greyed out if not applicable to the chosen organization unit).
Once you tap Save changes you will be prompted to enter your credentials to confirm the changes made.
Once done, the next redirect will take you to the standard login screen.
Repeating first-time login flow
A scenario could arise where you would for example move device(s) used for POS from one store to another. This would in turn require that you change the selected organization unit of the device(s).
To do so, repeating the above (first time) login flow is necessary. You can do so in two ways:
- When logged in: go to the More options tab, Systems card, and click Reset to factory defaults.
- While logged out: tap the top left corner icon (usually an EVA icon) 3 times
In both cases a toaster will prompt you about restoring the POS configuration to its factory defaults; ensure you have an active Internet connection. Once accepted, the first-time login flow is repeated where you can now change your inputs for endpoint, organization unit, and Live Guard.
POS will automatically log you out after a certain amount of time. The amount of time after which you will be logged out can be set using
App:Session:LockTimeout. The setting expects a time in seconds.
You will be prompted to select a station after you log in. The list of stations is based on your store infrastructure. This behavior can be configured in the Admin using the setting
App:ShowStationSelectorOnLogin by setting the value to
false; default is false. If set to 'true', users will be prompted with a station selector upon logging in.
After logging in
POS opens on the basket page.
Change default login route
Using the setting
App:Pos:DefaultRoute, you can change the path that POS will take after logging in. This has the possible destinations of
If the setting is set to any other page than
moreOptions, it will warn you at logging in, if the cashdrawer or the financial period is closed.
