Setting up your User
Using the Parse Dashboard, we need to create your admin user.
By default, when your API service is running locally, it will be accessible on http://localhost:9000/api. You will also have a Parse dashboard site running at http://localhost:9000/parse.
The Parse dashboard can be a useful development tool.
API/src/env.jsonfile, use the
PARSE_DASHBOARD_USERSenv.json variable to configure your parse dashboard.
Object Array container user, pass key value pairs.
Don't commit dashboard users to git if you intend to use this file in production. Instead, do one of the following: - Supply an environment variable
PARSE_DASHBOARD_USERScontaining a JSON string. - Supply an env.json file in your production environment by file extension using the environment variable ACTINIUM_ENV_FILE
Visit http://localhost:9000/parse to view the Parse Dashboard login:
Login with username and password specified in PARSE_DASHBOARD_USERS
The Parse Dashboard provides a very low level "super-user" look at your Parse mongo database! This should only be used by an administrator (or for local development).
Once logged into Parse, you should be able to manually create an application user for your API. You can use this to assign a role and its associated capabilities
