On the Home tab, end users can view Services, Service Tunnels, and Active Connections in a single location. Home tabs are tailored to the end user’s Role in their org.

  • Service Tunnel visibility: Orgs that use Service Tunnel can see whether it’s connected and running.
  • Autorun: If Autorun is enabled for Service Tunnel (the green button with the arrow), users will automatically connect to Service Tunnel each time they log into the desktop app.
  • Recently Accessed Services: End users have quick access to recently used services.
  • Device Trust Level: End users can quickly scan their device Trust Level.

Services

Under My Services, end users can view all services their device has access to within an org.

  • Active Connections: These are services that an end user is currently using.
  • Favorites: These are services bookmarked for easy access.
  • Autorun: These are services that an end user has opted to auto-connect to on login.
  • Service Bundling: End users can bundle services together, for added organization.
  • Service Catalog: End users can view their services organized by type (i.e., Hosted Websites and Infrastructure services).

Devices

Under Devices, end users can view Trust Levels for each of their registered devices. Beneath each device is a list of Trust Factors, which together make up the Trust Level.

Settings

In Settings, end users can view the status of their session and services (e.g., WireGuard Service and Admin Service).

  • Health Check: End users can troubleshoot using the Run Diagnostic Tool.
  • Support Website: End users have quick access to Banyan’s Support Website.
