  • 1.  What's the default Data Control Tower password?

    Posted 03-13-2024 04:42:00 PM


    I just installed Data Control Tower (DCT). However, I'm unsure what the default login username/password is. 


    For the first login, the administrator will use an API Key rather than a username and password. 
    The API key is automatically generated and presented in the DCT Gateway Pod's logs. For security reasons, you use this key to create a new administrative user and immediately delete the API Key user afterward. We call this API Key the "bootstrapping" API Key.


    Navigate to DCT's Kubernetes cluster to perform a `kubectl` or `oc` command to view the Gateway Pod's logs. You might need to consult your Cloud Administrator.
    The API Key will look something like the following early in the Gateway logs:
    Use this key to authenticate via the API Key approach on the DCT homepage.

    Hello Nicholas

    We had this question and we weren't very sure what to do with these directions:

    Thanks for this post. Here there are some instructions that might help others.

    This command gets all pods in the cluster:

    kubectl get pods -n dct-services

    Output example:

    NAME                                                 READY   STATUS      RESTARTS      AGE
    gateway-75a6aa5c88-m3kml             1/1           Running       0                      14h

    Look for the gateway pod name and replace for the correct one in the following command to get gateway logs.

    kubectl logs gateway-75a6aa5c88-m3kml -n dct-services | grep 'NEWLY GENERATED API KEY'

    The output will be something like this:

    NEWLY GENERATED API KEY: 1.aXyz123Abc456dEf .... 

    Using this API key, execute curl to create a new admin user, like this:

    curl -k --location --request POST 'https://DCT IP Address/v2/management/accounts'   --header 'Content-Type: application/json'   --header 'Accept: application/json'   --header 'Authorization: apk 1.aXyz123Abc456dEf ....'   --data-raw '{
        "username": "admin",
        "password": "yourPasswordDct$123",
        "generate_api_key": false,
         "is_admin": true

    Don't forget to replace DCT Ip Address and APi key in curl command.

    Password must be at least 15 characters long including upper & lower letters, one special character and a number. If password requeriments are not met, curl response will tell them.
