Getting started with MyGlue

Welcome to MyGlue! Here are a few things you'll need to know to get started with MyGlue.

Prerequisites

  • You must be an IT Glue Administrator or Manager with "Allow All Organizations" access.

Introduction

MyGlue is a password management and collaboration solution designed for clients of IT services companies and tightly integrated with IT Glue. MyGlue can also be extended toward process management to combine teams, passwords, and documentation in one seamless experience.

To deploy MyGlue, you configure new MyGlue accounts and then provision groups and users to those accounts. If you currently have clients who use IT Glue, the steps for creating and managing users will look very similar.

To access their account, invited users will accept the invite and go to the MyGlue login screen (https://app.myglue.com or https://app.eu.myglue.com) to sign in. 

Initially, each MyGlue account will be a blank slate. This approach allows you to quickly deploy MyGlue without inadvertently giving MyGlue users access to sensitive information. You can share your IT Glue information with MyGlue users as needs arise.

Have a client stakeholder who uses your IT Glue documentation? A MyGlue group setting allows you to grant access to "unrestricted" IT Glue assets by MyGlue group. See MyGlue user roles, groups, and permissions for more information. 

IT Glue authentication settings have no effect on MyGlue, so there is nothing to reconfigure in IT Glue if you currently use our SSO and MFA features.

An important note to our partners:

MyGlue is a collaborative solution designed to move your clients towards self-served management of their passwords, checklists, and internal documentation. With MyGlue, they are empowered to solve simple or repetitive IT issues on their own.

As their Managed Service Provider, your IT Glue account provisions their MyGlue accounts. It’s important to note that, per our Terms of Service, MyGlue is to be used by your external client base only, rather than internally.
