Sign In/Out

Once you open the workbench, it will ask you to log into the system if you have not logged in already, or your authentication token is expired.

Simply enter your username/password and press the “Sign In” button. The default login is “Admin” and you have already entered the password on configuring the Master Server during the installation process.

If you keep the “Stay signed in” checkbox ticked, you will not need to re-enter your credentials until your token is expired.

To sign out, select the “Sign Out” button on the toolbar as shown below.
