Accessing Administration Portal

To access Administration Portal:

  1. If you are an SP administrator, skip to 3.

    If you are an OpCo administrator and logging in to Administration Portal for the first time, do the following. If not, skip to 2.


    When your administrator creates a CSO account for you, an e-mail (with the subject line CSO Account Created) is sent. This e-mail contains a URL that allows you to log in to Administration Portal. The URL is active for only 24 hours and is valid only for the first log in.

    1. Click the URL that you have received in the e-mail.

      The Change Password page appears with a message that you must change your password for security purposes.

    2. Change your password following the guidelines provided in Table 1.
    3. (Optional) Click the Terms of Use link to view the Terms of Use document.
    4. Click the check box to accept CSO terms of use.
    5. Click OK.

    The login password is changed and you are logged out of the system. When you log in you must use the changed password.

  2. Login to Administration Portal using the link provided in the account activation e-mail.

    We recommend that you use Google Chrome (Version 60 or later) or Firefox (Version 78 or later) to access the Contrail Service Orchestration (CSO) GUIs.

  3. Enter your username and password.

    If you are an SP administrator, login with the username cspadmin and the password that you specified for Contrail OpenStack.

    The Welcome page appears listing the key features of the release.

  4. (Optional) If you want to hide the Welcome page on your next login, select the Hide this on next login check box.
  5. Click Go to Dashboard. The menu bar on the left-hand side of the every page allows you to access the different tasks easily. The top-level menu items are listed in Table 2.
