The Harvester login page is shown below:


Developer Mode

In developer mode, which is intended only for development and testing purposes, more authentication modes are configurable using the environment variable HARVESTER_AUTHENTICATION_MODE.

By default, the Harvester Dashboard uses the local auth mode for authentication. The default username and password is admin/password.

The currently supported options are localUser (the same as local auth mode) and kubernetesCredentials.

If the kubernetesCredentials authentication option is used, either a kubeconfig file or bearer token can provide access to Harvester.
