This topic describes how to log in to Micro Focus Connect. Before opening the Micro Focus Connect user interface, make sure that the Micro Focus Connect server is running.
A new Micro Focus Connect installation comes with a pre-configured user, "Administrator." The pre-configured password for this user is "Administrator." When you log in the first time as Administrator, you are prompted to change your password. Your password can be any alphanumerical character or symbol, except for the following reserved symbols: >, <, &, “, and ‘.
The Administrator user has a Site user role and has full privileges to perform all operations in the Micro Focus Connect UI. The Administrator user can always log in, even if you use other authenticators such as Micro Focus Octane or Micro Focus ALM/QC.
Your login user/password access is controlled by the product you are logging into if you use any other product-specific authenticator. Other authenticators can be configured, like the Octane or ALM/QC authenticators. These authenticate exactly the same way as they would log into the respective Octane or ALM/QC product.
The Micro Focus Connect SaaS deployment does not include the Administrator user (Site role). The Admin user provided by your SaaS Support Team is an Admin role on the default authenticator. You can create more users at Admin or User roles on the default authenticator, or you can use a product-specific authenticator. The Admin role has fewer privileges than the Site role. The User role has fewer privileges than the Admin role.
