Linchpin Hack

There are multiple ways to login into your Linchpin instance with Linchpin Mobile. Check out our Linchpin Hack for Linchpin Mobile below. Please note the following Linchpin Hack is currently only available in German 🇩🇪.

Login via QR code

On desktop

First, you have to generate a QR code. You can do so within your user profile.

Navigate to Your user profile → Mobile access. Click on the Generate QR-Code button.

This code needs to be scanned within the mobile app.

This function is only available if the administrator enabled it.

On mobile

Click on the Login button. Then, click on the Scan your login QR code instead button.

You will see a small tutorial on how to generate the QR code, in case you didn't do so yet.

Click on the Scan QR code button. Scan the QR code.

Depending on the settings of the system you are logging in to, you might need to enter your password.

Enter the name for your Linchpin instance and click on the Finish button.

Login without QR code

You can also login into your Linchpin instance without a QR code.

First of all, click on the Login button. Then, click on the Add new login button.

Communication between Confluence and your mobile device is secured by end-to-end encryption only if you select the https:// protocol option.

Within the Address field, enter the URL to your Confluence instance (without http:// or www.!).

Click on the Next → button.

In this new section called user credentials, enter your Confluence username/login and password.

Click on the Next → button.
