Hi Oleksii,

Yes you need to follow the steps on that page and use these values and select a password:
Pincode field: 1234
Email field: [email protected]

Username that is being configured is: admin

After that you can login with admin and your password and you can use SKF

This information also need for other users.
I can auth in SKF.

I was unable to activate the admin user.

The users I am using are:

User id: 1
Access token: 1234
Email: [email protected]
Username: admin
Password: *
Re-type password: *

I am doing what is written in the documentation

I use docker SKFAngular image:

That I'm doing wrong?

Hi Edgar,

This should work, I just tried it myself 1 minute ago. Did you do the steps below?

First get the docker image:
docker pull blabla1337/skf-flask

Then run the docker image:
docker run -e "ORIGIN=localhost" -e "JWT_SECRET=change_this_super_secret_random_string" -ti -p blabla1337/skf-flask

The application will greet you on:

Hi Foobar,

Yes, I did the steps for installing SKF in Docker. SKF is running!

The problem is in the activation of user account.

I enter the data

User id: 1
Access token: 1234
Email: [email protected]
Username: admin
Password: *
Re-type password: *

Error: "Warning! User could not be activated, contact your administrator!"

You have an idea?

Thank you!

I have the same problem Edgar has.

The code seem to specify that we are doing the right thing, but the error persists.

In the documentation, there is this warning about the First Run: "Whenever a wrong pin number is entered the application automatically deletes the user for security purposes, should this happen the database should be set to defaults". I wonder if this is the reason why we are experiencing this issue: how could we ensure that database is set to defaults? I have removed the image and pulled it again, therefore I would expect to have reset the DB, but the error persists.

Please help!
Thank you.

Hi Guys,

The good news is you are getting the SKF application loaded, i think there is a small issue in how you access the application. are you using the to visit the app? It will go wrong if you use localhost.

If above not helping please join the chat channel so i can help you:

Hi Abid,

I need a bit more information, did you have it installed on a server or are you running the Docker container?
Can you maybe join our gitter channel? Its easier to troubleshoot :)

Kind regards,

I managed to install using the docker on my computer with the Windows operating system, not finding any problems at all.
Then I tried to install it to the server using a specific ip so that my team can access it. but after being installed and entering the first-login and and follow this instruction , error message always appears.

Warning! User could not be activated, contact your administrator!

is there something wrong ? I use this command when running container :
docker run -e "ORIGIN=<my_ipaddress>" -e "JWT_SECRET=change_this_super_secret_random_string" -ti -p <my_ipaddress>:443:443 blabla1337/skf-flask

thank you :)
