You can use the Jedox Cloud Console to administer your Jedox Cloud instances.
Connection to Cloud Console
After your registration, you will receive an email with a link to activate your personal Cloud instance. Follow the link to login with your email and your password.
After logging in, you will be presented with the Jedox Cloud Console. The numbered sections are described below the screenshot.
1 – Instance
Select the instance you want to manage from the drop-down menu. Most accounts come with multiple instances. The drop-down menu will display all available instances, their names, and the version of Jedox running on them.
2 – Account Settings
Here you can adjust your name, email, and password for the Jedox Cloud Console.
3 – Statistics
Displays real-time information about CPU, storage, and snapshot usage, including CPU usage graph. Uptime report allows you to download availability reports for the current and previous two months. The reports are downloaded in .csv format as a zip file.
4 – Services
Controls status of each service individually by providing buttons to stop/start/restart/kill (force stop) each service individually, as well as restart functionality of the whole instance. Please note that Web Server can only be restarted.
5 – Connection
Displays information relevant for connecting to the instance from a remote Excel Add-in front end. This section also contains a field for the Security Token, which is necessary for connections from Excel Add-in to the Cloud.
Note: The Copy to clipboard button copies all the connection data to your clipboard. When you add a new connection in Excel, all the fields are automatically filled-in.
6 – Snapshots
Here you can define time slot for instance-maintenance time by picking the hour (in UTC) at which regular maintenance will be performed. Furthermore, this section provides a list of the last 5 snapshots, including download functionality. Snapshots contain all the instance data (database, reports, log files, etc.).
7 – Jedox
Displays help information and links.
Enabling multi-factor authentication
Your cloud console now allows you to enable multi-factor authentication. To enable it, follow these steps:
- Log in to your cloud console.
- Go to Account Settings. A QR code is displayed.
- Enable the Activate multi-factor authentication option.
- Scan the QR code using the camera of your device and your virtual MFA application (e.g. Google Authenticator).
Once the multi-factor authentication is enabled, you will be prompted to input the authentication token in addition to your password on your login screen.
