  1. How to Get Started With Volt MX Foundry Console
  2. How to Log In to Volt MX Foundry Console

How to Get Started With Volt MX Foundry Console

Note: If you have installed Console and Identity Service along with one or more Volt MX Foundry components such as Integration, Engagement and Sync services on Tomcat or JBoss on a single node, you can directly log in to Volt MX Foundry Console as you have already created your super administrator account.

While installing Volt MX Foundry components with above combination, the Administrator Account Configuration window helps you to configure your super administrator account.

After Volt MX Foundry is installed, you need to configure identity services, and create your administrator account. Based on the installation, you will see the list of URLs in the Install Complete window shown below:

To launch Volt MX Foundry Console, follow these steps:

  1. From the Install Complete window, copy the Console URL, and run it in your web browser.

    Note: Bookmark the URL for quick access.

    The Welcome to Volt MX Foundry setup! page appears if you have not configured your identity services.

    Note: Fields marked with an asterisk are mandatory.

  2. In VoltMX Identity Service URL text box, enter Identity Service URL from the Install Complete page.

  3. In the Admin Details, enter the following details:

    • First Name: Enter the first name of the user.
    • Last Name: Enter the last name of the user.
    • Email: Enter the email address of the user. It can include alphanumeric and special characters that follow standard email address form.
    • Enter password: Enter the password for the user. It can be a combination of alphanumeric and special characters.

    • Re-enter password: Retype the password to ensure the user's identity.

  4. Click Setup.
    Once the details are validated for one-time configuration, the system will:

    • Associate your credentials with Volt MX Foundry identity services and authorization services.
    • Display the Sign in to your Volt MX Account page.

How to Log In to Volt MX Foundry Console

If you have configured identity services and created your administrator account (VoltMX Foundry superuser account), you can log in to the Volt MX Foundry console. A superuser will have owner permissions by default.

  1. Go to VoltMX Foundry Console URL that you have bookmarked in the previous section. The Sign in to your account page appears.

  2. Provide your Volt MX administrator account login credentials (email and password) that you have created.

  3. From the Source drop-down list, choose the source type. By default, the Source lists the Volt MX User Store.
    The Source lists configured active directories only if you have configured active directories in the Settings > User Management > Identity Providers.

    The Domain drop-down list appears only if you choose Active Directory as the source.

    When a username is common across multiple sources and multiple domains in Active Directory, a user is asked to provide the source and domain details for authentication. Because there are users from multiple sources, both the Source and the Domain should be differentiated. A user must provide both the Source and the Domain before authentication occurs.

  4. From the Domain drop-down list, choose one of the domains of Active Directory.

  5. Click Sign in.
    After your credentials are validated, you are directed to your Volt MX Foundry account. By default, the Apps page appears.

    Note: The release version of a console is displayed at the bottom left corner in the console menu pane. The release version is in the following format:
    <Major_version> <servicepack> <hotfix> <DEV/QA>.
    For example: V8 SP1 HF4 DEV
