Opening the Console for the first time will prompt the user for a Magic Word:
This prompt will appear each time the Console is opened until at least one set of credentials (Windows, SQL, Linux, etc.) have been added to the Console via the ‘Manage Credentials’ tab. Once one or more credentials are saved, the user will be prompted for their chosen Magic Word going forward:
The Magic Word is not stored on disk nor in the cloud and therefore cannot be reset or recovered. It can be the same or unique to each copy of the Console you choose to deploy in your environment; but it must be at least 12 characters long and include the following characteristics:
- One upper case letter,
- One number; and
- One special character.
IMPORTANT: If you forget the Magic Word after saving credentials in the Console, then you will need to uninstall then reinstall the Console to regain access. You can then reenter any credentials previously added.
The Magic Word is masked in the log.service file to eliminate the need to remove these entries from the log before they can be shared with partners and/or Movere Support:
