Administering FishEye

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:

  • log in to FishEye using an administrator's account.
  • click Administration at the foot of the screen and enter the admin password.
  • navigate to http://HOSTNAME:8060/admin/, where HOSTNAME is the name of the server on which you installed Fisheye.

Once logged in as an administrator you can get to the Admin area by clicking the 'cog' 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.

If you're running FishEye on Windows you might want to install it as a service so that FishEye starts up automatically during start-up. See Run FishEye as a Windows Service.

If you intend to use FishEye with Subversion, please ensure you read the Supported Platforms, Subversion client setup, and granting permission to FishEye to scan your repository.

If you intend to use FishEye with Perforce, please ensure you read about Perforce client setup.

FishEye runs its own HTTP web server, and additionally listens on a socket for administration/shutdown commands. These default to :8060 and 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.
