=======================
Log in to the dashboard
=======================

The dashboard is generally installed on the controller node.

#. Ask the cloud operator for the host name or public IP address from
   which you can access the dashboard, and for your user name and
   password. If the cloud supports multi-domain model, you also need to
   ask for your domain name.

#. Open a web browser that has JavaScript and cookies enabled.

   .. note::

      To use the Virtual Network Computing (VNC) client for the dashboard,
      your browser must support HTML5 Canvas and HTML5 WebSockets. The VNC
      client is based on noVNC. For details, see `noVNC: HTML5 VNC
      Client <https://github.com/novnc/noVNC/blob/master/README.md>`__.
      For a list of supported browsers, see `Browser
      support <https://github.com/novnc/noVNC/wiki/Browser-support>`__.

#. In the address bar, enter the host name or IP address for the
   dashboard, for example, ``https://ipAddressOrHostName/``.

   .. note::

      If a certificate warning appears when you try to access the URL for
      the first time, a self-signed certificate is in use, which is not
      considered trustworthy by default. Verify the certificate or add an
      exception in the browser to bypass the warning.

#. On the :guilabel:`Log In` page, enter your user name and password, and
   click :guilabel:`Sign In`. If the cloud supports multi-domain model, you
   also need to enter your domain name.

   The top of the window displays your user name. You can also access the
   :guilabel:`Settings` tab (:ref:`dashboard-settings-tab`) or sign out
   of the dashboard.

   The visible tabs and functions in the dashboard depend on the access
   permissions, or roles, of the user you are logged in as.

   * If you are logged in as an end user, the :guilabel:`Project` tab
     (:ref:`dashboard-project-tab`) and :guilabel:`Identity` tab
     (:ref:`dashboard-identity-tab`) are displayed.

   * If you are logged in as an administrator, the :guilabel:`Project` tab
     (:ref:`dashboard-project-tab`) and :guilabel:`Admin` tab
     (:ref:`dashboard-admin-tab`) and :guilabel:`Identity` tab
     (:ref:`dashboard-identity-tab`) are displayed.

.. note::

   Some tabs, such as :guilabel:`Orchestration` and :guilabel:`Firewalls`,
   only appear on the dashboard if they are properly configured.

.. _dashboard-project-tab:

OpenStack dashboard — Project tab
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Projects are organizational units in the cloud and are also known as
tenants or accounts. Each user is a member of one or more projects.
Within a project, a user creates and manages instances.

From the :guilabel:`Project` tab, you can view and manage the resources in a
selected project, including instances and images. You can select the project
from the drop-down menu at the top left. If the cloud supports multi-domain
model, you can also select the domain from this menu.
