 2. Logging in to Analytics

To access Analytics, you can:

  • Log in to the  Resource Manager interface, using your  Resource Manager user name and password

  • Log in directly to Analytics, using your  Resource Manager user name and password or as an Analytics superuser

 2.1. Logging in Through the  Resource Manager Interface

Access to Analytics through the  Resource Manager interface requires  Resource Manager Manager, ZenManager, or ReportingUser privileges. (Manager and ZenManager provide Analytics administrative privileges; ReportingUser provides user-level privileges.) You cannot log in to Analytics solely with Resource Manager administrator privileges.

  1. Log in to the  Resource Manager interface with your  Resource Manager user name and password.

  2. Select Reports > Advanced.

    The Getting Started page appears.

     

    Figure 3.1. Getting Started

    Getting Started

    From here, you can choose shortcuts to:

    • View your reports

    • Create a report

    • Analyze report results

    • Change Analytics settings

    Alternatively, make a selection from one of the Analytics menu options:

    • View - View the Analytics repository, reports, analyses, or messages.

    • Manage - Organizations, users, or roles (accessible by administrators)

    • Create - Create ad hoc reports or dashboards.

Note

If you log out of Analytics after logging in through the  Resource Manager interface, you must log out of  Resource Manager to log in again through  Resource Manager. Further, if the  Resource Manager server is restarted, you must log back in to Analytics.

 2.2. Logging in Directly to Analytics

You can log in directly to Analytics by using your  Resource Manager user name and password (with appropriate  Resource Manager privileges), or as an Analytics superuser.

  1. Browse to the URL of your Analytics server.

    The Analytics login page appears.

  2. Log in:

    • With your  Resource Manager user name and password:

      1. From the  Resource Manager Instance list of options, select the  Resource Manager instance for which you will provide a user name and password.

      2. Enter your  Resource Manager user name and password in the User ID and Password fields.

    • As an Analytics superuser:

      1. From the  Resource Manager Instance list of options, select Internal Authentication.

      2. If the user is located in an Analytics organization other than  Resource Manager, enter the organization name. (Typically, you would not enter a value in this field.)

      3. Enter your Analytics User ID and password in the User ID and Password fields.
