Who can use the Alloy Navigator mobile app?

If you have a technician account in Alloy Navigator, you can use the Alloy Navigator mobile app. If you are not sure whether you have a required Alloy Navigator account, please contact your Alloy Navigator administrator.

Before you begin

  • Install the Alloy Navigator mobile app on your iOS or Android mobile device.

  • Obtain sign-in information from your Alloy Navigator administrator:

    • API URL - the address of the Alloy Navigator API module (for example, https://navigator.example.com/api). Ask your Alloy Navigator administrator for that address if you don't have it.

    • Username/ Password - the credentials of your Alloy Navigator technician account. These are the same credentials you use to sign in to the Alloy Navigator Web App.

IMPORTANT: Before you can get started, your Alloy Navigator administrator must install the API module and configure it for Access Token authentication method. If you are an administrator, see Installation Guide: Installing and Configuring the API Module for how to install and configure the API, and Administration Guide: Customizing the Mobile App for additional customization tasks.
