Eggplant Automation Cloud Administration

Administration of Eggplant Automation Cloud includes the following tasks:

  • Adding systems under test (SUTs)
  • Creating new users (which could be additional administrators)
  • Creating user access groups (which let you manage SUT access)
  • Creating SUT groups
  • Generating reports

Only users with Administrator privileges can perform these tasks. Administrators perform these tasks through the Eggplant Automation Cloud GUI, which is accessible through a web browser. The Eggplant Automation Cloud installation program creates an administrator user you can use to log in to Eggplant Manager the first time. You can continue to use this user by changing its password, or you can create additional administrator users.

After installing Eggplant Automation Cloud, you can perform an initial log in through the Eggplant Automation Cloud login page in a web browser by using the provided administrator user shown below:
