Logging In

After Launching the ADempiere Application the login dialog will appear. This dialog has two tabs, a connection tab and a default tab. Before you can set the defaults, you must complete the connection.

The icon Icon Ok24.png and Icon Cancel24.png at the bottom of each page will process or cancel the dialog respectively.

Connection Tab

Field Description
Server This field is for reference. You can change the definition of the server if you click in the field. This will bring the window Connection Test up
User ID Fill in with the user ID provided for you. There are a few defaults available below.
Password Fill in with the password provided for you. Again, the defaults are below
Language Select the language you wish to use. The change is immediate.

The first field called Server shows which server and database you are connected to. The Server field highlights the status of the application server and database that will be used. It indicates this status with a red background if either:

  • the database service is not available or the connection information is incorrect or the connection hasn't been initiated; and
  • the application server is not running of the connection information is incorrect.

If only one of the the application server or database service is the cause of the problem, the icons on the right and left of the field will appear red. For example, in the image above, the database icon is red indicating, in this case, that the database connection hasn't been attempted yet. If both the application server and database connection have issues, the entire field will be red.

When launching the client, the initiation process tests the application server status but not the database connection. The Server field will show the database with a red background as in the diagram above. This is normal. Once you enter the user name and password, the connection is established. The delay in the database connection allows you to change the database during the log-in process.

Click in the Server field to go to the Connection Test dialog to diagnose the problem causing red backgrounds in the field or to change the database parameters.

The Client will still operate if the database is available but the application server is not running.
