VIP Dashboard

The VIP Dashboard is the home for managing VIP Platform applications. Upon signing in, a list of all apps available to a user is visible.

User access and authentication

GitHub is used to authenticate access to the VIP Dashboard. In order for a user to have access to the VIP Dashboard for an application, the user must have access to the GitHub repo for that application. Some parts of the dashboard require read access to the repository to view, while other parts, and many actions, require write or admin access.

An “e002 User Not Found!” error indicates that we were unable to find any VIP Go repositories the user has access to. If the GitHub user account does not have access to any VIP Go repositories, authentication will not be successful. 


Application view

The main Dashboard panel displays a list of Open Pull Requests, recent Deployments, and links to the WordPress login andGitHub repositories for each of the app’s environments.
