Available authentication modes

There are two modes of authentication in the Developer Console

  1. BASIC
  2. LDAP

BASIC Authentication

By default, Developer Console uses its own authentication method and users.

Default user

The first user to be automatically created is "admin" with the password "admin". (the password can be changed later)

Manage Users

On the left panel, you can click on the "Users" button to manage your users.

Add users

If you need more users, you can create more by clicking on the '+' button at the top of the window. There, you simply specify the username and password of the user you want to create. 

Only the admin user can create, edit, or delete users. However, a user can change its own password.

LDAP Authentication


If you want to use an external LDAP server you can do so by adding the following parameters in the config.sh file (located in <install-path>/visualdoop2): 

  • VISUALDOOP_LOGIN must be set to LDAP

Then Go to Visualdoop/ldap.properties 

Define Developer Console Admin users

By default, the user named "admin" is the admin of the Developer Console. If you are using LDAP and a user is named admin, he will be too. You can change the admin username by adding the following parameter to the config.sh file


export VISUALDOOP_ADMIN=admin,my_user

Admins are a string of comma-separated usernames. You can add as many admins as you want.

In the example above, two users are administrators: admin and my_user.

Including or not including Domain ?

In case of LDAP configuration, if the  "DN_PATTERN" parameter does not contain the domain (uid=%s), then each user defined as an admin user should contain its domain.
