Login & Access

Managing your account

This only applies to the users managed with Contour built-in authentication, i.e. those who log in by keying email address and password on login page. This doesn't apply to those who log in via Single sign-on (SSO) option, because the SSO accounts are fully managed by your company's identity and access management platform and as such requests and issues should be addressed internally.
