Login and Connecting Broker

There are two different ways to open the login dialog:

  1. By clicking the red bar in the main Thundra tool window (located to the right of the page by default).

  2. By using the “Connect” link in the Thundra Tracepoint tool window (located at the bottom of the page by default).

Either way, you will see the following screen:

If you don’t have a Thundra account yet, you can click the “Sign up now!” link located at the bottom-left of the page to open the sign-up page on the browser.

If you have a Thundra account, you can fill in the connection parameters to log in. By default, the broker address is filled as broker.thundra.iowhich is our cloud broker address. You can also connect to your own on-premise Thundra deployment by filling in the broker address accordingly.

If you want to set up an on-prem broker to your address, please reach us by sending an email to [email protected].

If the credentials are incorrect, you’ll see the “Invalid username or password” error as follows.

If the login succeeds, the application instances and associated tracepoints (if any) will be listed in the main Thundra tool window:

To disconnect, you need to click the "disconnect" icon () at the top-right, and then confirm the operation:

Note that the initial release only supports the ability to connect from one project source at a time. So, if you open the source code of multiple projects simultaneously, you can only connect from a single project and will be disconnected automatically from other ones.
