Sections

Super users and the root user can access the root console in Continuous Delivery for Puppet Enterprise (PE). Use the root console to manage users' account credentials, change super user permissions, configure single sign-on, access all workspaces associated with the installation, and update your installation's settings.

  • If you are the root user, sign into Continuous Delivery for PE with the root account credentials established during installation.

To exit the root console, click the name of a workspace.
