Adding, Editing and Deleting Servers

In order for the user to connect to a server and be able to configure it, that server must be known to the web administration tool, and must be started and running.

Once the Denodo ITPilot administration tool has started up, it is possible to configure some parameters that affect this tool by clicking on Settings. It is important to note that only users with the maximum privileges (administrator permissions) may access these sections.

To access the configuration of the Denodo ITPilot administration tool a screen (Denodo ITPilot login screen to administrate the web tool) is shown in which the user will have to enter his/her credentials. There is one predefined user for this web administration tool with login “admin” and password initially set to “admin” (which can be changed after the user logs in by clicking on the button Change password).
