Acquiring Exostar User Account to Access Lockheed Martin Procure to Pay (LMP2P)
My Company has an Exostar Managed Access Gateway (MAG) account but I am not a user. How do I get an account at Exostar to access Lockheed Martin Procure to Pay (LMP2P)?
Each MAG company account has an Organization Administrator and an Lockheed Martin Procure to Pay (LMP2P) Application Administrator. The Organization Administrator is responsible for approving all new users for the company account. An Exostar MAG account can have multiple applications a user might access, one of which is Lockheed Martin Procure to Pay (LMP2P). Each application in MAG has an assigned Application Administrator, who is responsible for approving a user’s access for that application (e.g. LMP2P). For more information on administration, please see the Admin Resources page.
To obtain a user account, contact your company’s Organization Administrator, or go to https://portal.exostar.com/userRegistration and complete the online registration form. You need to know the Organization ID of your company to start the registration process. You can get this information from any user or administrator within your organization, or contact Exostar Customer Support. Once your registration is complete, the Organization Administrator must approve your MAG account and the Application Administrator must approve your access to Lockheed Martin Procure to Pay (LMP2P).
