This article is a complete reference to the Swivel Core Administration Web Console. This page lists all the top-level menus, and each menu has its own page, referenced from this page, with the exception of a few that can be summarized within this page.

Logging In

To log into the Swivel Web Console, enter the following URL into a web browser:


Here, <swivel_server> is the IP address or host name of the Swivel appliance.

You should be presented with the following login screen:

Enter the username of an administrator. The shipped application comes with a user named admin. Click on Start Session and a TURing image will be displayed.

You now need to enter your one-time code based on the TURing image shown. The default PIN for the admin user is 1234, so enter the first 4 digits of the TURing string - in this case 5034.

If this is the first time you have run the web console, you will be presented with the End-User Licence Agreement.

You should read this, and assuming you accept it, click on "Accept EULA" to continue.

You will now be presented with the Status page.
