The Log In process is similar to both the Java Client and the Web Application. Each is discussed below. The default users and passwords are the same.
The following Users and passwords are part of the initial seed database:
The System and SuperUser User accounts are used to manage the system. For first time use, try the GardenAdmin User account which will access the Garden World demonstration client.
After Launching the ADempiere Application the login dialog will appear. This dialog has two tabs, a Connection Tab and a Default Tab. Before you can set the defaults, you must complete the connection by logging in. Enter you user name and password and click the green check mark (
) called "Confirm". If you don't have a user name, you can use one of the default names as shown below. For the first time, just confirm the defaults that appear and move on to Finding Your Way Around.
ADempiere Login Connection Tab
The first field called Server shows which server and database you are connected to. The Server field highlights the status of the application server and database that will be used. It indicates this status with a red background if either:
- the database service is not available or the connection information is incorrect or the connection hasn't been initiated; and
- the application server is not running of the connection information is incorrect.
If only one of the the application server or database service is the cause of the problem, the icons on the right and left of the field will appear red. For example, in the image above, the database icon is red indicating, in this case, that the database connection hasn't been attempted yet. If both the application server and database connection have issues, the entire field will be red.
When launching the client, the initiation process tests the application server status but not the database connection. The Server field will show the database with a red background as in the diagram above. This is normal. Once you enter the user name and password, the connection is established. The delay in the database connection allows you to change the database during the log-in process.
Click in the Server field to go to the Connection Test Dialog to diagnose the problem causing red backgrounds in the field or to change the database parameters.
ADempiere Login Window - Defaults Tab
When you click in the Server field in the Connection tab of the login dialog, the Connection Test dialog appears. Note that this window is intended for system administrators. As a user, you should not need to look at it.
Connection Test Dialog
Once all the tests are complete, click the green check mark to return to the Defaults Tab.
The Web Application launch is simpler than the JAVA Client as there is no need to verify the connection with the server. After Launching the Web Application you will be presented with a login dialog as shown below.
ADempiere Web Application Login
The login fields are pretty self-explanatory:
After you click the Confirm button, the dialog will change to allow the selection of the Role, Client, Organization and Warehouse.
Role Login Dialog
The Roles available to the User will determine the Client and possibly the Organization and Warehouse. The first time the user logs in, the Default Role (as defined in the User Assignment tab of the Role window or User Roles tab of the User window) will be selected. From then on, the Role selected on the last login will be the default.
