Setup staging - Username & Password

Tom Barker asked on August 9, 2016 14:09


I've read the documentation on setting up content staging, but I'm confused by what username & password combination I am suppose to use? It doesn't appear to be Kentico user, where do I get the credentials from?

Thanks, Tom

The username and password on the live server are set in Settings>Versoning and Synchronization under the target server. You them use those same credentials on the staging (client) server under the Synchronization app when you add a new server.

In setting up staging, there are 2 ways the Staging and the Live site authorize content pushes.

One is using a username and password. You set it on the Live Server (any username and password you want, does not have to be an actual user), then the staging site uses that username and password to validate itself, saying "Hey Live site, i have your username and password, so i'm authorized to push changes to you).

The other is through a key, same principle, it's just a very complex random key.

Hi Trevor,

Thanks for taking the time to reply, however "You set it on the Live Server" is the part I'm struggling with. Where do I create this username and password combination on the live server? Is it a Kentico user? A Windows User, etc...? I'm not sure what kind of user I'm suppose to create on the live server.

Thanks, Tom
