Usage

OAS User panel

After all the applications are installed, the first thing to do is log into https://admin.oas.example.org. This is the “user panel” , a place where you can create, edit and delete users. These users can be used to log into the applications listed below. You can log in with the user “admin”. The password can be found by running

python3 -m openappstack oas.example.org secrets

Search for userbackend_admin_password.

After logging in, you will see an overview of all the installed applications your user has access to. For more information on how to create users and give them access to applications, take a look at the user panel documentation.

Note

If you don’t see applications, make sure you have installed at least one optional application in Install additional applications of the installation procedure.

For creating users follow the user creation documentation.

Note: The email address is important because some applications need a valid email address for notification mails. Single sign-on with Grafana will fail for users lacking an email address.

You can now use the new user to log in to all apps which were granted access to in the last step using single sign-on.

Links to all available apps are shown in the userpanel dashboard, which can be used to access these apps without a need to bookmark all URLs.

Core applications

These applications are available after the installation is completed successfully:
