[FishEye Knowledge Base]
The FishEye Administration area allows you to administer your FishEye instance and manage your repositories, users and back-end settings.
To log in to the Admin area, you can either:
HOSTNAMEis the name of the server on which you installed Fisheye.
Once logged in as an administrator you can also get to the Admin area by clicking your user menu in the FishEye/Crucible header, and choosing Administration.
You will also want to read about the command-line options for controlling FishEye.
You can disable FishEye's Administration Console by setting
admin-hash="" in the
<config> element of
config.xml before starting FishEye.
We recommend that you run FishEye as a user that has only read access to your repository.
FishEye runs its own HTTP web server, and additionally listens on a socket for administration/shutdown commands. These default to
127.0.0.1:8059 respectively. You can change both of these addresses by editing
config.xml. You'll need to restart FishEye after doing that.
If you need to reset the administrator password, delete the
admin-hash attribute in the
<config> element. You will be prompted to enter an administrator password next time you start FishEye. See How to reset the Admin password in Fisheye or Crucible.
One of your first steps will be to add a repository.
