The AUS key is retiring on 31 March. This tutorial shows how to set up the new version of FAS 3 Desktop to use the new Machine Credential which replaces the AUS key.
The AUS key is retiring on 31 March. We are releasing a new version which uses the replacement to the AUS key, the Machine Credential.
We've delayed a little on releasing an upgrade that uses the new Machine Credential as we want to release a new version with a lot of new features in addition to the new Machine Credential.
There is a guide published by the ATO on how to do this: https://info.authorisationmanager.gov.au/guide-how-to-install-a-machine-credential
1. The first step is to set up your My Gov ID. This is not in the video.
2. Next you log into the https://authorisationmanager.gov.au/ website. When you get to the manage credentials page you will be prompted to install a browser extension (aka extension or plugin). Restart the browser and enable the plugin.
3. Then go back the the manage credentials page and click the Create Machine Credential button. Choose a file, password and give it a name. Then download. Also make sure you keep the file secure as mentioned on the page.
At this point you have the Machine Credential.
4. Then just go to the FAS 3 Desktop configure page and point it to the Machine credential.
Then just lodge as normal. Happy days!
