Managing Jobs

Step 1 of 3

Logging In

The first task is logging into SaltStack Enterprise (SSE). We've already built out a simple environment for you to kick the tires in. Near the middle of the screen, you will see two tabs; Terminal and Dashboard. You're probably on the Terminal tab now. Click on the Dashboard tab to bring up the SSE login page.

If you've just started the tutorial, you will see a temporary status page that says Connecting to Port 80. If so, wait 30-60 seconds for SSE to be fully-provisioned.

When the login page is displayed, input a username of root and a password of salt.

Once logged in, click Continue below to learn how to edit a job.
