You can configure the settings for the Bitpoke App from the configuration wizard that appears when you install it, or later from System settings.
After you install the Bitpoke App and paste the install link in your browser, you’ll be redirected to a configuration wizard to setup further details. You can configure these settings now or skip them and configure them later from the App’s System Settings . Skipping the configuration steps is a good approach if you want to check out the App as soon as possible to see what it has to offer, but they need to be followed for the App to be fully operational.
- If you skip the configuration steps, keep in mind that the installation link regenerates every 2 hours and you’ll have to go back to the Bitpoke App on GCP and recopy the install link to access the App again.
- The installation link is automatically disabled when you login for the first time with your Auth0 or Google OAuth credentials.
- If you somehow mess up your credentials, you can reactivate the installation link to fix them.
