When setting up MFA, why do I keep getting "Invalid authenticator code"?
Ensure you are scanning the QR code with the MFA app on your mobile device or used the provided code. This
will produce a MFA token (6-digit number) that changes every 30 seconds. Type in that 6-digit
number (e.g. 123456) with no spaces.
If the MFA token is not accepted, you will receive the "Invalid authenticator code"
error. You must re-scan the QR code again which creates another MFA token (another
6-digit pin that is changing every 30 seconds). You must use the new 6-digit pin
(you can delete the old ones).
Your phone time may be out of sync. Check your phone's settings to make sure the
time is updating automatically. If you're using Google Authenticator on Android, try
the Sync Now feature to update the time.

Why am I not receiving a password reset email from P1 SSO?
Try having the email sent again and make sure to check your junk email folder.
If you accidently tried logging in using your old Mattermost credentials more than
five times, your account is likely locked out. Contact a team admin or email us at
email@example.com to have your account unlocked.
If you created your Mattermost account after 19 May, your P1 SSO account may not have been automatically created.
Ask a team or system admin for an invite link to create a P1 SSO account. Alternatively
you can send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
My account says it's disabled
Send an email to email@example.com from the email address associated to your account. Include the word "disabled", "reactivate", or "unlock" in the body. Your account will be automatically unlocked and you will receive an email reply when once complete.

I have multiple Mattermost and/or P1 SSO accounts, can I combine them?
Unfortunately, there is no way for us to combine accounts. We can deactivate
whichever account you will no longer be using. Let your team admin know which account (email
address) you will no longer be using or email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why am I getting a "X509 certificate's authentication failed." when trying to log in
with a CAC?
Your account is likely locked or may be experiencing issues from the migration to P1
SSO. Please email us at email@example.com and
we should be able to quickly resolve the issue.
