Authentication and Authorization¶
To access the Denodo Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool from the local machine, connect to http://localhost:9090/diagnostic-monitoring-tool. You will see the login dialog, as shown in Authentication dialog in the Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool.
Before clicking “Login”, you can click the icon to change the
database that will be used to check your credentials. Your user account
must have the
CONNECT privilege on this database.
The credentials introduced in the login dialog are reused in the

you perform a diagnostic intervention. All the diagnostic-related
metadata is stored in the same database. The Diagnostic & Monitoring
Tool creates the diagnostic database the first time you
create a diagnostic,

Diagnostic & Monitoring Virtual DataPort. Next time you want to create a
diagnostic, you only need a user with the
ADMIN privilege on the

This window is divided into three areas:
- Header: You will find here the logout link and, under the Options menu, the configuration of the tool.

- Working area: the data you are Monitoring or diagnosing is presented here organized by tabs.

- Configure Kerberos in your browser.
Provide an absolute path when you enter the path to the keytab file in the Kerberos configuration of the Diagnostic & Monitoring Virtual DataPort Server.
If Kerberos authentication is properly configured, the Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool will automatically authenticate you and show you its home page.
