This topic only applies to Armor Complete - Secure Hosting account administrators who have not started the upgrade process to Generation 4.

Before you begin, to better understand the upgrade process, Armor recommends that you review the Frequently Asked Questions for Generation 4 documentation.


24 hours before your scheduled upgrade begins, you will receive an invitation from Armor to complete the account signup process and access the Armor Management Portal (AMP).

Before Armor begins the upgrade process, use this document to complete the recommended pre-upgrade tasks.

Armor recommends that you complete these tasks so that after the upgrade process, you and your users can easily access AMP. 

Step 1: Complete your account signup

No link could be created for 'Complete your account signup (snippet)'.


Step 2: Confirmed assigned roles

In the Armor Management Portal (AMP), roles are similar to job titles that you can create and assign to your users. You can populate these roles with specific permissions to restrict the type of access your users can have in AMP.

For example, if you have a user who simply needs accounting permissions in AMP, you can create an Accounting role, assign accounting-related permissions to the role, and then assign that role to a specific user. 

To prepare for the upgrade process, Armor has created three default roles (Admin, Technical, and Billing). Additionally, Armor has assigned your users to one of these roles. 

Armor recommends that you review the assigned roles in AMP. 

After the upgrade process, you can edit these roles. 

 Permissions in the Admin role

By default, the Admin role contains every permissions and is automatically assigned to a new administrator account.

 Permissions in the Billing role
