Requiring an Ambition Username and Password is a layer of security before being able to access the organizational data that's displayed on Ambition TV slides.
Device Doesn't Support Password Authentication
If you are using third-party software, digital signage solution, browser, etc that does not support password-based authentication, we can issue you a URL token instead.
Each URL token is associated to an active account in Ambition, and a single token can be used across multiple TV URLs. Currently tokens cannot be refreshed, but a new token can be issued to another user in Ambition in the event a new token is needed.
Utilize Token-Based Authentication
A single token can be used for multiple TV URLs.
If you are using token-based authentication, you will need to append the following to your TV URL
Locate TV URL through Ambition
1. Click the left-hand navigation > TVs.
2. Click on the TV URL that you are needing to display through token-based authentication.
3. Appended the token issued to you by Ambition to the end of the respective TV URL.
Example of URL + Token
The link containing Ambition TV URL + Token can now be copy/pasted directly into a browser or digital signage solution which will immediately display an Ambition TV without any username or password.
View TV Content without an Ambition Account
While displaying TVs on third-party software or digital signage systems that don't support password-based authentication is the main reason for using token-based authentication, a token can also be issued if your Organization wished to share TV content with users who do not have Ambition accounts.
Use Case: The CEO wishes to have an Ambition TV running in their office, but the CEO does not have an Ambition account. Token-based authentication would allow for the CEO to access Ambition TV content without needing to have an Ambition user license.
