In a default setup Package Drone always has an
admin user which is not registered but
built in. It has the role
ADMIN but not
MANAGER. Which allows it
to configure the system, but not play around with artifacts.
admin token is the password for the admin user. Since it is normally
randomly generated, it is called
token instead of
There are two ways how this password is being generated. The default setup will create a
new token on every startup of Package Drone. It is printed on the console and written to
~/.drone-admin-token with limited read permissions.
The second way is to provide the token externally, through a system property or environment variable.
It is also possible to disable the
admin mode completely or change
the admin user name.
See the documentation for this.
You have to know how your system is configured. Because if you don't know, it probably is not your system.
