Logging in to Unica

Use this procedure to log in to Unica.

Before you begin

You need the following.

  • An intranet (network) connection to access your Unica server.
  • A supported browser installed on your computer.
  • User name and password to sign in to Unica.
  • The URL to access Unica on your network.

The URL is:



host is the machine where Unica Platform is installed.

domain.com is the domain in which the host machine resides.

port is the port number where the Unica Platform application server is listening.

Note: The following procedure assumes that you are logging in with an account that has Admin access to Unica Platform.


Access the Unica URL using your browser.
  • If Unica is configured to integrate with Windows Active Directory or with a web access control platform, and you are logged in to that system, you see the default dashboard page. Your login is complete.
  • If you see the login screen, log in using the default administrator credentials. In a single-partition environment, use asm_admin with password as the password. In a multi-partition environment, use platform_admin with password as the password.

    A prompt asks you to change the password. You can enter the existing password, but for good security you should choose a new one.

  • If Unica is configured to use SSL, you may be prompted to accept a digital security certificate the first time you sign in. Click Yes to accept the certificate.

If your login is successful, Unica displays the default dashboard page.


With the default permissions assigned to Unica Platform administrator accounts, you can administer user accounts and security using the options listed under the Settings menu. To perform the highest level administration tasks for Unica dashboards, you must log in as platform_admin.
Note: Starting with version 12.1.4 Unica Campaign has migrated to OpenSSL 3.x.

Although we expect all functionality to work normally, there may be cases that any third-party software running on same machine as Campaign server may not yet support OpenSSL 3.x.

In such cases it may be necessary to have installed Campaign version to switch to OpenSSL 1.x.
