You can use the secret key to add the Rula provider portal account back to your authentication app. This will let you access your code for future logins to the portal.


To use your secret key to reset your Rula provider portal account:

  1. Make sure you have an authentication app downloaded. If you do not, we recommend downloading the Microsoft authenticator app for iPhone/Android.
  2. Open your authentication app and tap Add Account.
  3. Tap Other Account.
    • Wording may vary depending on the app being used.
  4. You may be asked to give the app permission to access your camera. Allow access.
  5. Instead of using the camera to scan a QR code, tap Enter account manually.
    • Wording may vary depending on the app being used.
  6. Type Path Portal in the Account Name field.
  7. Type in your secret key in the Secret Key field.
  8. Tap Finish.
    • Wording may vary depending on the app being used.
  9. You should now see the 6-digit code you’ll use to log in to the Rula provider portal.
