To get started with Arcana you will first need to head over to dashboard.arcana.network and configure your app. Once you have configured the app you will get an app ID which you can then use to initialise the Arcana SDKs and subsequently integrate into your apps.
First, login to the dashboard using any of the supported OAuth methods.
As soon as you have signed up you will be taken through the configuration steps to set up your app. Please note that this is our Alpha release therefore do not use important data without back ups.
First, enter your app name (this is a mandatory field).
After that choose the region where you want to store your data. At the moment the "Anywhere" is selected by default and cannot be changed. As we onboard more storage node providers and expand into different regions you will be able to choose where you want your data to reside.
Next, choose which blockchain your application will be built on if it is using one.
After that choose the login type for your application. Users can bring in their own key pairs or be assigned a new pair upon registration through our Distributed Key Generation system.
Each login type has its own set of parameters. For example, Google requires a client ID in order to give the required permissions to your app. Once you choose a login type it will show the required parameters for that login (e.g. client ID) and a link to how you can get them.
Finally, select the user level limits for storage and bandwidth for your application (default is unlimited at the moment).
In case you want to choose a specific value it would look like this.
Once you have configured you application you will be taken to the dashboard which shows you an overview of the utilisation across the app. You can view the total no of users registered on your app and the number of files they have uploaded. Apart from that you can get a broad overview of how much storage and bandwidth has been used at the app level along with how it has changed over time.
The Users page shows the user level usage (storage, bandwidth, action count) for each user.
Clicking on a particular user will pop up a window which shows the transaction history for that wallet address.
Finally, the profile page will show your personal and organisation level details which can be edited at any point in time.
If at any point you want to reconfigure the app head over to the configure page from the dashboard. Here, you can also change the blockchain from Testnet to Mainnet (once available) or even delete the existing app.
