Users

There are two pre-configured login users in PingIntelligence for APIs Dashboard:

  • admin
  • ping_user

Multiple users can share the admin and ping_user logins simultaneously on PingIntelligence for APIs Dashboard. The admin user has access to all PingIntelligence for APIs Dashboard functions. A ping_user can only view all the API dashboards.

Sign-on

At the login screen, login as admin or ping_user. The default password for both the users is changeme.

CAUTION:

You must change the default password for production deployments. However, in a Docker PoC deployment use the default password.

You can change the password using the following CLI command.

# <pi_install_dir>/webgui/bin/cli.sh -u admin update_ui_password --username -value <admin or ping_user> --new-password -p
Enter admin password > <current admin password> 
Enter new password > <new password> 
Reenter new password > <new password>
success: password updated.

Session management

The PingIntelligence Dashboard allows you to configure the maximum number of active sessions. You can set the pi.webgui.session.max-active-sessions parameter in the <pi_install_dir>/webgui/config/webgui.properties file to limit the maximum number of allowable active sessions. The default value is 50.

Delete active sessions - You can delete active sessions using the following CLI command. The current active users will be prompted to re-login in to the Dashboard.

# <pi_install_dir>/webgui/bin/cli.sh -u <username> -p <password> delete_sessions
Note:

You need to have Admin user privileges to delete active user sessions.
