Administration - Setup

This document describes how to securely upload card data from your Android device to your  secure Microsoft Azure database.

Enable Remote Upload (one-time)

Before you start, Remote Upload is a feature that must be turned on for each client and database.

Please request “remote upload” from your Sales Representative.   This is a security feature. 


Create a 'remote-upload' Secure User (one-time)

Log into your web-app.  In the Administration menu on the LHS, click on Users.  

Check if your database has a User named ‘remote-upload’.  If not, create a User with User name ‘remote-upload’ and assign the Registration Role in the Roles tab. 

Note: remember the password for later.

1. Generate a Secure Link

Find the user you wish to enable remote uploading in Profile Search. View their profile.  


Scroll to the bottom of the User’s Profile and locate the Remote Upload – App section.  (This will be shown if the Contact Harald team has enabled it in the very first Administration step.)


Click on the purple ‘Generate a Link’ button.  This will request the password used to setup the remote-upload user.  Make sure you type it in exactly, it is case sensitive.  

Click the blue copy button to copy the link to the clipboard.

2. Send a Secure Link

Email the secure link (copied to the clipboard) to the User. The link will look something like this:




Note: save the link somewhere safe to forward it on again in the future.


Note: Currently the same link can also be used by other Users on your system.  If the remote-upload password changes, the link will need to be generated again.

If you are having trouble please check the following:

  • Did you set up the remote-upload user properly?  The user name must be exactly as shown with a dash -’ in between.

  • Did you type in the password for the user remote-upload properly?  It is case sensitive.

  • Did you send the secure link correctly?  You must send the entire URL, all characters.

  • Is the card registered properly?

  • Is Bluetooth allowed on your phone?

  • Is Location allowed on your phone?

  • Do you have an internet connection on your phone?
