Info: Mobile devices like smartphones or tablets are not supported.

How to log into DataHub

After the Cumulocity IoT DataHub services have been subscribed for your tenant, you have to log into your tenant. In the application switcher you will find the DataHub button. When you click this button, you will be taken to the home page of DataHub. DataHub provides the management and monitoring UI of Cumulocity IoT DataHub. Alternatively your tenant administrator can give you the URL directly navigating to DataHub, which requires a login as well.

As working with DataHub requires you to have corresponding DataHub permissions, you will get a warning after login if you omit those permissions.

When you want to log out, click the User button at the right of the top bar and from the context menu select Logout.

Overview of UI features

DataHub provides the UI you use for managing and monitoring your offloading pipelines. The main navigation bar on the left provides links to the relevant pages. The access to these pages is restricted and depends on corresponding user roles/permissions as defined in section Defining DataHub permissions and roles.

Tenant and user settings

The DataHub instance you have access to is tenant-specific, i.e., this instance solely serves your tenant. You use your Cumulocity IoT account to access your DataHub instance.

In addition to your Cumulocity IoT account, you have a separate account (which is created during the initial setup) for accessing Dremio. Contact your administrator for the Dremio account credentials. On the Home page there is a direct link to the Dremio instance under Quick links .
