For advanced administrator features, see UI for Admins

Accessing the UI

To access the Okera UI, browse to the URL provided by your Okera administrator.

Supported Browsers

The Okera UI is supported on the latest versions of the following browsers:

  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Microsoft Edge
  • Apple Safari

Logging In

Use the Login screen to access the UI. The Login screen is configured to provide login options depending on your cluster configuration. These options include:

Okera Login Screen
Example login screen with Active Directory and Token login

A Note on SSL

If Okera is configured to run with SSL enabled using a self-signed certificate, the SSL certificate must be setup on your local system for the UI to be accessible to your browser. If, upon navigating to the UI, the browser warns that the site is not trusted, the SSL certificate may need to be installed.

Please note that even if you bypass your browser's certificate warning, the Okera UI will likely continue to not work, with the Login screen reporting this message:

Could not contact server. Check your network connection and try again later.

If you see this message, it could mean you need to install the SSL certificate. Contact your Okera administrator.

Using the UI

Once you are logged in, the UI starts you off in your Okera Home page. From here, you can directly access most of your options.

You will see a quick access list of your recently starred datasets and your user tags. Clicking on one of the tags opens a list of your datasets with that tag.
