Web GUI#

The i-doit GUI is a WEB application that can be used with the respective supported browser. This Knowledge Base article describes the various features and functions of the Web GUI.

Logon Screen#

When you activate i-doit after successful installation, the logon screen is displayed first. Here you can logon to i-doit directly or you can go to the Admin Center by clicking the "Admin-Center" button in the lower area of the window.

For log-in to i-doit our default users apply, such as Admin, Archivist, Author, Editor or Reader, provided that i-doit was installed only just. All these users have their name as password, for example, you can log-in with the user name "Admin" and the corresponding password "Admin".

On the right of the i-doit button is your personal i-doit area called "my-doit". Here you can set various CMDB status filters, bookmarks for i-doit objects or areas and you get an overview of your tasks from the workflow system. You can activate this in Administration → User settings → User interface → Main menu.


Objekt Type Group Selection#

In the central part of the upper task bar you can see the single object type groups. You can adapt this area completely to your requirements and depending on your configuration it can look completely different. By selecting a single menu item, the respective object type groups are displayed within the tree view on the right-hand side of the i-doit user interface.
