Log in and configure DP Platform

To complete your installation, you must log in and configure the DP Instance for LDAP.

You must configure your DP Instance for LDAP and set up your initial DataPlane Admin users and groups.

Be sure you have your enterprise LDAP configuration available. Refer to Enterprise LDAP requirements for more information.

  1. Browse to your DP Instance host.
    Use a public IP address or set up and use a DNS (Route 53) fully qualified domain name (FQDN).
  2. Log in using the Super User admin account you configured during initialization:
    • Username: admin
    • Password: Use the password specified during DataPlane initialization
    After login, the initial “Onboarding Welcome” screen displays.
  3. Click Get Started to proceed with setting up authentication.
    The Onboard/Configure LDAP page displays the Setup Authentication settings.
  4. Enter your LDAP information.

    See Enterprise LDAP requirements for more details on these settings and options.

    If you are using LDAPS and a self-signed certificate, be sure to click Upload certificate and provide your certificate in order for DataPlane to connect to your LDAP instance. Use the corporate LDAP values that you collected during the preparatory steps.
  5. Click Save.
    A success message displays on the page.
  6. Add users and groups, which will be the initial members of the default DataPlane Admin role.
    At least one user must be configured and must have at least the DataPlane Admin role, which is needed to add other users or groups, assign them roles, and configure services in DataPlane.

    You must click the name of the user when it displays and ensure it appears in the Users field on a dark background.

    If the name appears on a white background, it means the name is not recognized and the action fails.

  7. Click Save & Login to save your changes.
  8. Log in as one of the DataPlane Admin users you added using the LDAP credentials of the Admin.
    In case the login fails, it is most likely due to an error in the LDAP setup. Verify the settings with your LDAP admin and then log in using the Super admin user using the https://dataplane-host/sign-in page. After logging in, navigate to the User Management page. Click Edit LDAP settings from the right-hand drop down menu on the LDAP information section. Edit the properties that should be corrected and save.
You are now ready to proceed to managing your DP platform, including cluster registration and DP App installs.

You can now install and configure additional DP Apps and manage your DP Instance.
