Once you have deployed or installed Curiosity, you should be able to access it on your browser. If running locally, the url usually is http://localhost:8080, but this can vary depending on how you set it up. For a Curiosity-managed instance, use the URL provided to you by Curiosity.

First Login

Login with the default credentials ( user: admin, password: admin). You'll be asked to change it soon after during the setup process. We recommend you use a strong password, as this is an administrator account that has unrestricted access to the system, data and configuration.

Configure your Curiosity System

After your first login, you should see the initial setup screen. This short assistant will guide you through the minimum configuration to get your system up and running.

Click Get started to go to the next screen.

Configure a strong password (recommended)

This step is optional, but we recommend you to change the admin account password to a strong one. This is critical if your Curiosity instance is connected to the internet.

Activate your license (optional)

Out of the box, your Curiosity system is free to use within the limits provided in the Pricing page. If you have already a license to use your system, you can enter the License details by clicking in the Import License button. You also have the option to use the Subscribe button to get an online license. This license needs internet access to activate and validate the subscription, so if you need an offline license, reach out to us for more information.

Customize your system

You can now make your Curiosity instance your own, by changing the app name, logo and primary color. The logo must be provided in the SVG image format. If you need to convert another image type to SVG, we recommend the free Convertio website.

Supported Languages

Finally, before adding any data, you should select which language or languages you expect your data to be in. Curiosity currently supports out of the box the following languages:

  • English
  • German
  • French
  • Italian
  • Portuguese
  • Spanish
  • Norwegian
  • Polish
  • Danish
  • Dutch
  • Swedish
  • Russian

More languages are in our roadmap, but if you have any special requirements, let us know.

Once you configure a language, it will show as configured in the list:

That's it 🚀

You have now configured the basics of your Curiosity system. You can continue by configuring external data sources, creating your own data connector, or importing your own data from a CSV file.
