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.
Logging In as an Administrator
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:
- Username: admin
- Password: admin
After you log in, you can change the administrator password on the My Profile page, which you display by selecting Account > Account Settings in the Eggplant Automation Cloud interface. You can also change the default email address for the account on this page.
To update the name, username, and email address associated with this primary admin account, you must be using a user with Administrator privileges and navigate to the Available Users page, which you display by selecting Admin > User Administration. Only users with Administrator privileges see the Admin menu. You can also create additional administrator accounts specific to your environment. However, you can't remove the primary admin account.
