Quickstart with Jedox Web

image_pdfimage_print

Jedox Web is a web-based app that allows you to plan, analyze, and report, as well as build configurable dashboards, manage databases and data integration and more, using an intuitive interface, with no coding knowledge required. The app runs in your default web browser, for both Jedox Cloud and an On Premise installation.

In Windows, access Jedox Web via Start > All Programs > Jedox > Jedox Web. The login dialog is displayed in the setup language:

By default, the administrator login and password are both admin.

After logging in, the Jedox Web start screen is displayed. On Cloud Trial environments, Jedox Web opens with the Cloud Homepage, which gives you quick access to demo reports, and learning materials.

Otherwise, the Jedox Web home screen is shown, giving you access to several panels which contain the various components of Jedox Web. You can always navigate to the home screen by using the keyboard shortcut CTRL + H.
You can also see a list of the recently open items and their corresponding thumbnails. To clear this list, go to Options > General > Overview Page > Clear List.

The panels that are displayed in your Jedox Web home screen depend on your Jedox license and access rights. While the “admin” user always has access to all panels, other users might only be able to see specific panels, such as “Reports”.

In addition to the start panels there are also the following buttons on the left corner:

From left to right:
•    Jedox Web home screen
•    Recent documents
•    Help (active only after registration at Jedox Online under Options)
•    About Jedox
•    Options
•    Logout
