Specifying Initial Passwords

Initial user password provides a default password for each new user account.

Users can specify this password to gain access to the Vocera Platform Web Console the first time they log in. Users can then change this initial password.

By default, the Initial User Password field is blank. That is, users do not have to provide a password the first time they log in to the Vocera Platform Web Console.Users who are enabled to access the Genie from a phone must specify a phone password if Caller ID is not supported.

To add an initial password:

  1. Click Initial Passwords in the User Defaults section.
  2. Enter a value for the Initial User Password and Initial Phone Password fields.
    You must also enter the same value in the Repeat User Password and Repeat Phone Password fields.
  3. Select one of the following to close the dialog:
    • Save — to save the initial passwords in the system.
    • Cancel — to return to the Settings page.
