The VIP Dashboard is a portal for application management, and for users to interact with the WordPress and Node.js VIP Platform environments that belong to applications.
More information and support options can be accessed by selecting the button labeled “Help Center” located in the upper right of the screen. The Resources tab in the Help Center provides a search field for VIP’s documentation, and links to a group of information resources for VIP Platform features.
To access the VIP Dashboard, a user must be invited to an organization with an Org role assigned to them. Invitations are created based on a user’s email address, and a user’s email address can be invited to the VIP Dashboard by more than one organization. After accepting an invitation, users can log into the VIP Dashboard with multi-factor authentication managed by Enterprise Authentication.
A user’s ability to access and interact with areas of the VIP Dashboard for each application is defined by the Org role and the App role that is assigned to them.
The VIP Dashboard application view provides access to more information about the environments that belong to that application and manage their settings.
