connection manager archive serverIn order to work with the ecoDMS Archive, you must register via the connection manager.

The connection manager is installed automatically with the ecoDMS client. It establishes the connection with the ecoDMS server. In order to work with the ecoDMS Archive, you must register via the connection manager. To do so, you can, for example, use the ecoDMS default user. The default user is created automatically when you first install ecoDMS. The default user can scan, archive and classify documents, use the version management function and has access to the document history. Moreover, the default user has admin permissions and thus has the permission to make system settings and add more users. The login credentials for the default user (if the password has not been changed) are:
  • User name: ecodms
  • Password: ecodms
Change your password as soon as possible for security reasons. For more information and default users, refer to the chapter "Login Credentials" in the ecoDMS manual.

If you use the AllinOneInstaller to install the ecoDMS Server and ecoDMS Client on a local computer, the connection manager already provides a local profile with the default user. If not, you can easily create a profile yourself. The following figure (Profile) shows an example of how to fill in the profile on a local installation (single workstation) for the connection manager.
