Once you have successfully installed IPMonitor, the next critical step is to configure it to suit your specific monitoring needs. This guide will walk you through the configuration process, starting from accessing the IPMonitor dashboard to setting up projects.
Accessing the IPMonitor Dashboard
Following the installation, log in to the IPMonitor dashboard using the credentials you set up during the installation process. The login URL and instructions are provided at the end of the installation process.
Navigating the Dashboard
Once logged in, you'll find several key areas on the dashboard:
Project Dropdown List: On the left side of the screen, there's a dropdown list for projects. It includes sections like "Event Log", "Data Streams", "Instant Scan", "Assets", and "API Tokens".
Account Settings: Located at the bottom left side of the screen. Here, you can manage various aspects of your user account.
In the "Account Settings" section, you have several options:
- Update Profile: Modify your user account profile, including details like your profile photo.
- Change Password: Secure your account by updating your password.
- Two-Factor Authentication: Enhance security by enabling or disabling two-factor authentication.
- Active Sessions Management: View and manage your current active sessions for added security.
Project Selection: At the top left side of your screen, you'll see a dropdown list of your projects. This list will include all projects you've created, along with a default project set up during installation.
Switching Between Projects: Click on the project name to access a dropdown menu, allowing you to switch between different projects.
Creating New Projects: From the same menu, you can create a new project or edit the settings of the current project.
Isolated Project Environments
It's important to note that each project in IPMonitor operates in its own isolated environment. This means that assets, events, data streams, and all other sections are exclusive to their respective projects. Depending on your license specifications, you can set up multiple projects to monitor different environments or assets.
