Set up an administrator account for the Azure instance

Get started with Pentaho Data Catalog

Part Number

You must set up an administrator account to manage your Data Catalog instance in the Azure Marketplace.

Before you begin this procedure, you must have an IP address or URL for accessing the Data Catalog instance and an environment that meets the following conditions:
  • an active Data Catalog instance in the Azure Marketplace.
  • traffic allowed on port 443 from your desired IP addresses or IP ranges.

Perform the following steps to set up the account:

  1. In a browser, navigate to the Data Catalog IP address or URL resulting from the Launch the Data Catalog VMI instance procedure.
    You must use HTTPS to access the instance. You might see a NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID error message, due to Data Catalog's self-signed certificate.
  2. Ignore the error and proceed.
    You can add your own certificates to Data Catalog later.
    You are redirected to the Data Catalog admin account registration page.
  3. On the Create Admin Account page, provide details for the Data Catalog admin user and click Create Account.
    You are logged in to the admin account and see the Data Catalog home page.
You can begin using Data Catalog or create accounts for other users in your organization.
