Web Admin Setup

Last Updated: February 2, 2015

The final step required to setup your Tethys Platform is to link it to the software that is running in the Docker containers. This is done using the Tethys Portal Admin console.

1. Access Tethys Portal Admin Console

The Tethys Portal Admin Console is only accessible to users with administrator rights. When you installed Tethys Platform, you created superuser. Use these credentials to log in for the first time.


When installing Tethys with the installation script the superuser credentials would have been specified with the -S or --superuser and the -P or --superuser-pass options. If you did not specify these options then the default username and password is admin and pass.

  1. Use the "Log In" link on the Tethys Portal homepage to log in as an administrator.

  1. Select "Site Admin" from the user drop down menu.


You will now see the Tethys Portal Web Admin Console. The Web Admin console can be used to manage user accounts, customize the homepage of your Tethys Portal, and configure the software included in Tethys Platform. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with the different options that are available in the Web Admin.
