Logging In
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.

Default Users and Passwords

The following Users and passwords are part of the initial seed database:
For ...
Log in as User ID...

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.
For more information about using the Garden World Client when you first log on, see the page on Garden World and its initial setup.

Java Client

The Login Dialog

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.
The icons
and
at the bottom of each page will confirm/process or cancel the dialog respectively.

Connection Tab

ADempiere Login Connection Tab
Field
Description
Server
This field is for reference. You can change the definition of the server if you click in the field. This will bring the Connection Test Dialog up
User ID
Fill in with the user ID provided for you. There are a few defaults mentioned above.
Password
Fill in with the password provided for you. Again, the defaults are above.
Language
Select the language you wish to use. The change is immediate.
Note that it is not possible to request a new password when using the Java Client application. If you forgot your password, please contact an Administrator for your Client to have it reset.
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.
The Client will still operate if the database is available but the application server is not running.

Defaults Tab

ADempiere Login Window - Defaults Tab
After selecting the desired values in this tab, you can click on the green check mark to start the application. See Finding Your Way Around the Client.

Connection Test Dialog
Please talk with your system administrator if you don't know how to manage this window. In order to use the Connection Test Dialog, the ADempiere Application Server must be running and the database service must be available.

WEB Application

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:
Field
Description
User ID
Fill in with the user ID provided for you. There are a few defaults mentioned above.
Password
Fill in with the password provided for you. Again, the defaults are above.
Language
Select the language you wish to use. The change is immediate.
Remember Me
Check if you wish the Login Dialog to remember your entries the next time you access the Web Application. This option will only appear if allowed in your implementation.
Forgot Password?
Click this link if you have forgotten your password. A dialog will be presented where you can enter your User ID and submit the request to have the password reset. You will receive an email with a link to a page where you can reset your password. The email link will be active for only 5 minutes.
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.
If there is only one Role available to the User and the System is configured to only show multiple roles, the Role combo box may not be displayed in the dialog.
After selecting the Role, Client, Organization and Warehouse, click the Confirm button to complete the login. See Finding Your Way Around the Web App.
