Logging On

  1. Click (in Microsoft Windows 7) Start > Programs > Silk > Silk Test > Clients > Silk Test Workbench or (in Microsoft Windows 10) Start > Silk > Silk Test Workbench. Silk Test Workbench starts and displays the Login to SilkTest Workbench dialog box.
  2. From the Authentication list box, select if you want to use the Silk Test Workbench authentication, or the Windows authentication.
    Note: You can use the Windows authentication only for users that were added to the Silk Test Workbench users by using Tools > Administration.
  3. If you are using the Silk Test Workbench authentication, type a user name in the User Name field and a password in the Password field. If you are using the Windows authentication, you do not have to provide a user name and password.
    Note: If you are using Silk Test Workbench for the first time, an administrative user name and password may be required. The default user name is Admin and the default password is admin. Change this password after logging on to prevent unauthorized access. You can change your logon password at any time.
  4. Select the database to use from the Database list. For a database to appear in the Database list, you must first configure its database connection for use. To configure a database connection, click Configure on the Logon dialog box.
  5. Click OK. If you are the first user that is logging in to this database, Silk Test Workbench will create a default project named Project1 in the database. All assets that you create will be stored by default into this project. You can change the project name by clicking Edit Project. The Start Screen opens. If you are logging in to Silk Test Workbench for the first time, Silk Test Workbench selects Project1 or the first available non-global object as the active object.
