VisibleThread Administration site username and password 

Note: This only applies to VT Docs v4.4.3 and below. In VT Docs v5+, there is no https://your-visiblethread-server/sandboxAdmin URL and the system is administered by a System Admin user managed by the VT Docs application. There is no longer a default username/password for VT Docs v5+

The VisibleThread administration site is protected by a username and password.

On initial deployment the credentials for this page are username: ‘visiblethread’ password: ‘password’. These can be modified by logging in to the VisibleThread virtual appliance console and changing the settings in the following file:
