Add credentials

Kisi users are identified by either physical, mobile or link based credentials. Physical credentials, like native Kisi Passes, third-party NFC, or third-party RFID credentials need to be assigned to their users. You can:

Assign Kisi Passes in the web dashboard

  1. Sign in to Kisi
  2. On your organization dashboard, click on Credentials
  3. Click on Add credential
  4. In the popup window, enter the Kisi Pass token (printed on the card, case sensitive) and the email address of the user that you want to have this card assigned to (required)

If you don't want to issue cards to specific users, use an email alias (e.g. admin+1@yourdomain.com) to assign cards in Kisi and confirm them via the same email. Note: this method will not work for Microsoft Exchange users.

Assign third-party NFC credentials at a Kisi Reader

Before assigning a third-party NFC credential at a Kisi Reader, you need to enable Enrollment Mode on that specific reader.

  1. On the Kisi dashboard, navigate to Hardware
  2. Choose the reader you'll use for scanning the credential
  3. Enable Enrollment Mode

Now you can go ahead and enroll your card.

  1. On the Kisi dashboard, navigate to Credentials
  2. Click on Add Credential and select At Reader
  3. Choose the reader you'll use for scanning the credential
  4. Scan your credential by tapping it to the reader
  5. Once the credential is found, enter the email of the user you want to assign it to
  6. Click Assign

Assign third-party NFC credentials with an Android device

  1. Log in to your Kisi Android app and make sure NFC is turned on
  2. Click on Settings
  3. Select the Cards tab and click on the plus (+) icon
  4. Bring your credential to your phone so that the NFC reader in your device can read it. Alternatively, you can use your camera to scan the QR code on the credential.
  5. Once the credential has been found, enter the user's email address you want to assign it to
  6. Click Assign

Assign third-party RFID credentials at a Kisi Reader Pro 2
