Navigate to http://<your server>:<port>/<app name>/general/helloworld.html to see the a "Hello World" screen. In the Dashboard application, the page is called the Dashboard Installation Verification page and is located under the menu bar cog () < Help in the upper right side of the page (under the user name):

The Dashboard Installation Verification page serves as a tool to help verify your Dashboard installation in several categories:

  • Configuration Verification
  • Database Connection
  • Security
  • Application URLs
  • Version Information
  • Help Configuration
  • Styles

Configuration Verification

Review the security permissions held by the current logged in user (you):

License Keys

Properties currently defined in your License Key object are listed.

Application Functions

App functions and their respective CRUD (Create, Read, Update, and Delete) permissions are listed.

If a user's security settings are not working as expected or for additional information about these roles, see Dashboard Roles and Permissions.

Review the look and feel of the application as it applies to Menus, Buttons, and Icons (including Audit Icons and Staff Home Page Images):

 If you are upgrading from a 4.2+ version, you may get the following or similar error in your log:

ERROR [redlantern.actions.apis.common.dao.hibernate.AdminManagerHibernateImpl] - Admin value: CDEPT_FORMAT from app: SB not available or threw an exception when trying to set value
 Invalid property 'CDEPT_FORMAT' of bean class [redlantern.actions.collection.SBCollection]: Bean property 'CDEPT_FORMAT' is not writable or has an invalid setter method. Does the parameter type of the setter match the return type of the getter?

This is because an old admin value (in this case, "CDEPT_FORMAT") is no longer used. When you no longer want the error and are comfortable losing the old admin values, run the cleanup script for your current version.
