First connection

Once temboard is up and running, it's time to try a first connection to the web interface with a web browser using https at the address https://<temboard-host>:8888/.

Login

You should get a login box. The default administration account is admin, the password is admin. Obviously, this password MUST be changed as soon as possible. To edit user's profile, please login and go to Manage -> User list then Edit on the corresponding row.

Edit admin user

Currently, when a logged in user changes its password, the error message Restricted area... is raised, this behaviour is due to the expiration of user session when the password has been changed. Go back to the login page and fill the form with the new password.
