LogScale with a Single User

Single-user authentication is an easy way to get started with LogScale, but with added security compared to the no-authentication mode, in that you need a password to log in to LogScale. The default login username is user.

Be advised that the password is stored in clear-text in the LogScale configuration file. As a result, anyone with read permissions to that file will have access to the password. The single-user authentication method is meant as a quick way to get started. However, for productions systems you should use some of the Multi-User Authentication methods.

To start LogScale in single-user mode you need to specify the following two configuration settings:

ini files
AUTHENTICATION_METHOD=single-user
SINGLE_USER_PASSWORD=<your-password>

You log in with the user account and the password specified in SINGLE_USER_USERNAME and SINGLE_USER_PASSWORD in the configuration file.
