This chapter introduces the user interface and its basic functions.

5.1. Login

Figure 5.1 shows the login screen of Klaros-Test­management. To login enter the username in the Username field and the associated password into the Password field.

Figure 5.1. The Login Screen

Three user accounts are predefined in the database with the following roles:


Username: admin / Password: admin


Username: manager / Password: manager


Username: tester / Password: tester

Confirm the login to Klaros-Test­management by clicking the Log In button.

For a description of the users roles and the permissions associated with each role, see Appendix A, Access Permissions.

The Klaros-Test­management Enterprise Edition also supports authentication using an external directory service (LDAP / Active Directory). For more information about configuring an external directory service, see Section 10.5.5, “LDAP”.

[Note] Automated User Creation Option

If a user is authenticated for the first time using an external directory service, a user account with the Tester role can be created automatically for this user. The LDAP attributes for the username and the e-mail address are automatically transferred to the newly created user account in this case.

[Note] Setting the User Interface Language at Login

By default, the user interface is displayed in the language specified by the localization setting of the server operating system. Clicking on one of the flags to the right above the username text box also allows you to select a different language for the user interface.

After a successful login the Projects page is shown ( Figure 5.2).
