Future logins to your cloud-hosted SBS applications


You will asked to log in to your cloud-hosted SBS applications for the first time using the same credentials provided to you by Shireburn. The application login screen will open where you can enter your normal SBS login credentials. 

After this first-time login process, the applications will open to their native login screens. You will not have to log in again with the AVD credentials provided by Shireburn.
