When you have successfully completed the installation, various configuration steps now need to be worked through in order to complete the deployment process:

Step 1Configure authentication

By default, a "local" authentication system is active (additional users must be created manually and groups are not supported). The default login credentials are as follows:

  • admin/admin (this user already has the ADMIN role)
  • cast/cast

You can also configure CAST Imaging to function with your organization's authentication service. The following are supported:

  • LDAP/S
    • Basic Active Directory domain controllers
    • Other members of the Active Directory family such as ADAM / AD LDS
    • Non-Microsoft directories such as Apache, Oracle, Novell etc.
  • Microsoft Active Directory
  • SAML
Step 2Configure a license key

CAST Imaging requires a license key - this key restricts access based on:

  • The number of Applications that can be imported into CAST Imaging.
  • The expiry date
Step 3First login and become super adminGrant the SUPERADMIN role to a specific user - this role grants permission to access all data, configuration settings and tenants.
Step 4Export/import Application data
When using AIP Console integrated with your CAST Imaging instance, there is no need to manually export and import your Application data - this process instead forms a step in the analysis process and is therefore automated.

Before you can start to use CAST Imaging, you will need to:

  • export the Application data that will be displayed in CAST Imaging from a CAST Analysis Service schema
  • import the CSV format data (resulting from the export process) into CAST Imaging
Step 5Configure user permissions

There are two sets of access permissions that can be granted to a User or a Group of Users:

  • Ability to access the Admin Center
  • Access to Application data - permission must be granted before a user/group can view a specific Application data in CAST Imaging
This step can only be actioned when an application has been imported into your CAST Imaging instance.
Step 6Configure the source code viewer

If you would like to make the source code of the objects in your Applications available to end users, this is possible. 

This step can only be actioned when an application has been imported into your CAST Imaging instance.
