First steps - Administration Tool

The Denodo Adminitration Tool allows the development and administration of your Data Virtualization projects. Specifically, you can perform the following tasks:

  • Create/edit/drop Denodo virtual databases.
  • Create/edit/drop Data Sources.
  • Create/edit/drop views.
  • Publish Data Services.
  • Execute queries.
  • Add extensions.
  • Configure the Cache system.
  • Import/export metadata.
  • Configure the Denodo server.

At the end of the previous section you launched the Administration Tool. The first screen that the application shows is a login dialog; the credentials you type here will be used to connect to a running Denodo server.

The installation process of the Denodo Platform creates one user by default, with login admin and password admin. Use these credentials now to connect to your Denodo server.

The Denodo Administration Tool allows the user to connect to local or remote servers.

NOTE

Check the URL format: //localhost:9999/admin

  • Server (localhost): server name or IP address where Denodo is installed.
  • Port (9999): Denodo port number (this is the default value).
  • Database (admin): database name (by default, "admin" database was created at installation time).

Once you fill the login form, click on the Connect button. The Administration Tool will show an empty admin database.

Now you can see in the Administration Tool four main areas:

  • Menu bar: in this menu you will find the options to go to all the sections in the administration tool.
  • Elements tree: the left panel will show a tree with the different components (data sources, views, ...) created in the database.
  • Quick search: this box allows to filter specific elements in the elements tree.
  • Workspace: this is the main panel where the selected element of the elements tree will be shown.
