Getting startedLink

Accessing web dashboardLink

Open up the dashboard on http://localhost:8080/

You will be presented with the Sign-in screen. If you are on a freshly created instance, then you need to create a user first.

First userLink

Use the dashboard to sign-up as the first user or call the sign-up API manually to create the first user.

API CALL

As you will see later in actions sign up and sign in api's are nothing special but just actions defined on certain tables.

Request

curl 'http://localhost/action/user_account/signup' 
--data '{"attributes":{"name":"name","email":"email@domain.com","password":"password123","passwordConfirm":"password123"}}'

Response

[{
    "ResponseType": "client.notify",
    "Attributes": {
        "message": "Created user_account",
        "title": "Success",
        "type": "success"
    }
}, {
    "ResponseType": "client.notify",
    "Attributes": {
        "message": "Created usergroup",
        "title": "Success",
        "type": "success"
    }
}, {
    "ResponseType": "client.notify",
    "Attributes": {
        "message": "Created user_account_user_account_id_has_usergroup_usergroup_id",
        "title": "Success",
        "type": "success"
    }
}, {
    "ResponseType": "client.notify",
    "Attributes": {
        "__type": "client.notify",
        "message": "Sign-up successful. Redirecting to sign in",
        "title": "Success",
        "type": "success"
    }
}, {
    "ResponseType": "client.redirect",
    "Attributes": {
        "__type": "client.redirect",
        "delay": 2000,
        "location": "/auth/signin",
        "window": "self"
    }
}]

Nothing important in the response of signup to keep track of.

Successful response means now we can login as a user and become the administrator.

A failure response would look like this:

[{
    "ResponseType": "client.notify",
    "Attributes": {
        "message": "Failed to create user_account. Error 1062: Duplicate entry 'email@domain.com' for key 'i79f4e12e72442d30f2b99a84fce3c392'",
        "title": "Failed",
        "type": "error"
    }
}]

Or

[{
    "ResponseType": "client.notify",
    "Attributes": {
        "message": "http error (400) email and 0 more errors, invalid value for email",
        "title": "failed",
        "type": "error"
    }
}]
