HCP for cloud scale provides one locally defined administrative user account. Any other user accounts reside in a realm provided by external identity providers (IdPs). To log in you need this information:
  • The cluster hostname, instance, or IP address of the HCP for cloud scale system that you're using
  • Your user name as assigned by your system administrator
  • Your password as assigned by your system administrator
  • The realm where your user account is defined
  1. Open a web browser and go to https://system_address:8000
    system_address is the address of the HCP for cloud scale system that you're using
  2. Type your username and password.
  3. In the Security Realm field, select the location where your user account is defined.
    To log in using the local administrator account, without using an external IdP, select Local. If no IdP is configured yet, Local is the only available option.
  4. Click LOGIN.
The Applications page opens.
Note: When a new user is created and added to a group, that user might not have immediate access to HCP for cloud scale. Instead, login fails with the message "Not authorized. Please contact your system administrator." Verify the credentials. If the condition persists, the system administrator can use the API method security/clearCache to allow immediate login.
