By default there is only 1 user created during the installation process of BVQ (default name: bvq role: grafana admin).

(warning) Because Grafana is using its own user management, the password by default is P@ssw0rd - So you are not able to modify the password during the installation process.

This user afterwards is used to connect to Grafana with a web browser.

(info) By default Grafana is using TCP port 3000. You can modify the port during the installation of the BVQ Server.
