Find application credentials

Find credentials using the Microsoft Azure Marketplace

You have two options for obtaining your application credentials:

Option 1: Find credentials by checking the System Log on the Microsoft Azure management console

IMPORTANT: The application password is only available in the system log for the first 24 hours after you first start the instance. We strongly recommend that you note it down immediately on the first boot and save it in a safe place, as you will be unable to access the instance console without it. We also recommend that you change it as soon as possible for security reasons.

The following video shows you the process to obtain the application credentials on the Microsoft Azure management console:

The administrator password to log in to your application is randomly generated during the first boot. This password can be viewed as follows:

  • Log in to the Microsoft Azure management console.

  • Click the “Virtual machines” icon in the toolbar and select your server from the resulting list.

  • In the “Support + Troubleshooting” menu, select the “Boot diagnostics” option.

    Application credentials

  • Review the system log until you find the administrator username and password.

Option 2: Find credentials by connecting to your application through SSH

The application credentials are stored in a standalone file. To obtain the credentials at any time, follow these instructions:

Find database credentials

Database username

If you started a server (for example, MongoDB or similar) that isn’t a Web application server or your application includes a database server, you can use the default administrator user to log in to the database (for example, root). In the table below you will find the username for the most popular databases:

Database Username
MySQL, MariaDB, MongoDB root
PostgreSQL postgres

You can find more information for each specific server in our documentation.

Database password

The database password is the same as the administrator password you use to log in to your application.
