The MAAS web UI is where users will spend much of their time. It is the preferred way to manage MAAS. This page will explain how to access the web UI for the first time and also draw attention to the first iteration of the MAAS Dashboard.
Unless MAAS was installed from the Ubuntu Server ISO (see Install from ISO), you'll need to create a user in order to access the web UI. This initial user is a MAAS administrator:
sudo maas createadmin --username=$PROFILE --email=$EMAIL_ADDRESS
sudo maas createadmin --username=admin --email@example.com
The username can be anything. You will also be prompted to supply a password
for the user. The command option
--password=$PASSWORD can be used to specify
one but, depending on your environment, this may pose a security risk.
Note: At this time MAAS does not make use of the email address. However, it may do so in the future.
You can now log in here:
Where $API_HOST is the hostname or IP address of the region API server.
Once logged in, an administrator can create regular users as well as additional administrators. See User Accounts for this.
See MAAS CLI for logging in via the CLI and working with the CLI.
