Authenticating in Opsview Monitor

To access Opsview Monitor's web user interface, you need to login to the system


A user logs in based on their username and password combination stored in the configuration database. You can configure Opsview to use LDAP or Active Directory if you prefer.

When a user logs in, the button will change to a spinner until the page is reloaded and the user's home page is shown.

If you see an error such as the following:


then you have already hit the maximum sessions you are allowed to have, as configured by your system administrator (default: 10). This session limit covers both the UI and the REST API sessions combined.
