Before any task is performed using dLibra GUI applications an authorization process must be carried out. After the dLibra GUI application startup login dialog ( Figure 2.1, “Login dialog”) will appear on the screen.

The needed authorization data (user id, password) can either be entered directly in User ID and Password fields or stored in a login profile. Login Profiles Editor ( Figure 2.2, “Login Profiles Editor”) makes it possible to add new profiles or alter the existing ones.
