Authentication

After the user enters the tool, he/she is shown a screen with a form where he/she has to enter the URI of the Scheduler Server he/she wants to connect to. The URI of the server has the format //<host>:<port>/. If the tool has not been configured to use Kerberos or Denodo Single Sign On authentication he/she has to provide his/her user name and password for connecting to it, as shown in Authentication screen.

The Scheduler servers delegate the authentication to a Virtual DataPort server (see section Virtual DataPort Settings for instructions about how to configure it). It allows accessing to Scheduler with the existing Virtual DataPort users (including the Virtual DataPort “admin” user). Scheduler also retrieves the roles that have been assigned to the user on that server (roles can be created and assigned from the Virtual DataPort Administration Tool, see the Virtual DataPort Administration Guide). Scheduler allows assigning permissions to a specific role, to delimit the tasks a user with that role can perform over the Scheduler server. The permissions are assigned from the Scheduler administration tool (see section Permissions for more information).

Scheduler Server Local Authentication

In every Scheduler server, there is a local user out of the box (with password initially set to “admin”) with administration rights for the server. To connect to a server with that user you should open the URL http://<host>:<port>/webadmin/denodo-scheduler-admin/#/local-login and then enter the URI of the Scheduler server and the password of its local administration user.

Note

Any Virtual DataPort user with administration permissions over the Scheduler server has the same privileges as the local administration user, but VDP-based authentication and roles retrieval is only possible if the connection to the configured Virtual DataPort server is possible. For example, you could not authenticate if the Virtual DataPort server is down, or if it changes its execution port. In those cases, only local-based authentication can take place.

Web Administration Tool Local Authentication

In every Scheduler Web Administration tool, there is a local user out of the box (with password initially set to “admin”) with permissions to configure the tool (see section Web Configuration). To configure the Web Administration tool you should open the URL http://<host>:<port>/webadmin/denodo-scheduler-admin/#/web-local-login and then enter the password of the local web administration user.
