This guide is intended for account Administrators.
Jungle Disk will allow you to:
- Backup data using your choice of Amazon S3 or Google Cloud Storage.
- Protect data with AES-256 encryption using a key that you control.
- Share files between employees and securely access data from outside the office.
- Access and Manage data remotely using any Mac, Windows, or Linux computer with equal functionality on each platform.
Note: Don’t forget to note your login credentials! (admin email and password)
To log into the Jungle Disk Control Panel, navigate to this page and log in using the email address and password you used during the sign-up process.
This will be the page you will use whenever you need to:
- Check your Invoices.
- Update your Billing Information.
- Add or Remove Users.
- Edit User Passwords/Permissions.
- Add or Delete Online Disks.
- Check Usage/Backup Reporting.
After logging into the Control Panel, click the admin drop-down in the upper right corner. Select
Domain, then enter the name you'd like to use for your domain.
domainfield will be used to log into our software and into Web Access (Web Access is an Online tool used to view data you've uploaded to the Network Drive).
- For the domain name, you can use anything you wish as long as it is not already taken. We suggest using something easy to remember and representative of you, your team, or your company. Take note of this once you create it, as you will need this during the software configuration.
Now that the domain is set, you need to create a User. If you'll be using Jungle Disk across a team, you may need to create several users.
Before we continue, let's define a few key terms:
- User: A non-administrative user who will be using software to backup files and access files stored through Jungle Disk. The domain you set and their username/password will be what they use to verify their account with our software.
- Online Disk: Main storage point for Jungle Disk, this is where files and backups are stored. Accounts can have multiple Online Disks that can be accessed by one or many Users. Administrators can set "permissions" for users' access to disks.
Manage Users & Permissions. Click on
Create a New User, then enter a username, password, and tags (optional, but may be helpful if you're setting up for a team).
Note: Tags are used if you want to sort your team members into separate reports; such as finance, marketing, etc. Users will not see their tag or know that their account is tagged.
For a more in-depth explaination on how to add users, assign licenses and modify online disk access, refer to our support article User Management.
After you have set up your user(s), you may want to create additional online disks for you or your other users to access. This is particularly useful in a team-based environment if, for example, you have two groups who need to access different sets of data. Your financial department may not need access to your developers' content, so you can set up a separate Online Disk for each group. To create a new Online Disk, Click the
Online Disk drop down on the top of the Control Panel. Next, select
Manage/Add Online Disks You may want to use a name that represents the content of that disk; such as, "Finance" or "Documents."
Please note that the name of this disk cannot be changed after it's created.

Reporting User To explain this in more detail, we have two types of Usage Reports: one that centers around the amount of data stored in an Online Disk, and the other that centers around the amount of data stored in an Online Disk for which one user is responsible. Click Here to see more information about Backup Reporting.
Note: You can ignore this section if you only wanted to have a single username (this account is just for you) and you opted to create your Online Disk via the "Private Online Disk" option when setting up your username.
If you will have more than one user accessing an Online Disk, you will need to manually apply access rights for those users. Access can be set up in three different sections in the Control Panel; one example is included below.
- Click on the
- Select the user that needs access applied.
