After you have deployed Accurids (following the Installation instructions) it is recommended to verify if the setup was successful by going through the following list.
DNS and Proxy Configuration
Enter the URL where you expect the Accurids deployment into your browser and hit enter. You should see the welcome page without being signed in. If you see a blank page or a placeholder page by Nginx, the reverse proxy configuration (if used) may be incorrect. See Reverse Proxy Setup for more information. If you do not see any website at all, check if the DNS-configuration of your network points to the place where Accurids is running.
To check whether your Accurids license was configured correctly, refer to License Setup.
Depending on the configured authentication method, users can either sign up using their email-address (built-in security) or are managed in Azure Active Directory.
User Sign-Up and Sign-In With Built-In Security
If you use the built-in security of Accurids, click Sign-In (top right corner) and then Don't have an account? Sign up. Give your information including an email address. The first user to sign-up on a newly installed Accurids instance will be granted admin rights.
If you configured email confirmation, you should receive a confirmation email. If you expect an email and get none, check your spam filter or revise your Accurids email-config (see Installation). Please be aware that the Accurids instance should be able to reach the mail server via the network. If you receive an email, open the enclosed confirmation link. You should see a page informing you that the confirmation was successful. If not, please check that the computer you are using has network access to the Accurids instance.
After successful confirmation (if needed), try to sign-in with the selected credentials.
User Sign-In With Azure AD
Click the Sign-In button in the top right corner. You should be redirected to the Azure AD sign-in page asking which account you want to use. Try to sign-in with an account, that has been granted access to the application (as described in Azure AD Setup). You should be redirected to the Accurids UI with the search view opened. If this is not the case, ensure that the app registration within Azure AD is correct and the user has been granted access to the application.
Dataset Creation and Search
Datasets can be created by users with the roles
contributor, whilst the role
user can only search the datasets. The role contributor is currently only available when using Azure AD as the authentication method. When using built-in security, use an account with
admin role for creating datasets.
Try creating a dataset following the process described at Dataset Management. You may try file upload or SPARQL as data sources depending on your needs. Afterwards, search for entities within the created dataset(s) as described in Search & Browse. If no entities are found, check the Dataset properties for loading errors.
Further Questions and Support
