Let’s start with Exchange Environment:

The login credentials are: username Admin, password the one you choose during the setup ( ‘new_password‘).

After completing the login phase, add a name to the tenant and its e-mail address (don’t worry, nothing will be sent to that e-mail address for now). Click the save button and make a note of the automatically generated. password (Picture 7)

The Dashboard is still empty (Picture 11), don’t worry it’s because the portal is not still connected to VBO.

After the connection has been successfully completed (Picture 13), the dashboard is filled up (Picture 14) and you are ready to work with it.
