Getting started

sensenet has an admin-ui which enables you to connect to your repos and do basic content management actions. In the following you can learn about the different features of the admin surface.


Admin-ui is a central place to manage sensenet repositories by logging in to a specific repo with the correct credentials. First, enter repository URL then log in using your email address (and password) or your Google, GitHub account.

repo url login

If you don't have a repo yet, you can log in to our demo repository by clicking the big blue button either on repo url or login screen (see above).

You will be logged in with an admin user called Business Cat.

Menu and dashboard

Once logged in you can see the admin-ui in its whole beauty with different actions in the left pane menu and a nice dashboard with the most important info about your repo.
