  1. Check whether you need to include a port number as well as a hostname in the connection URL. For example, Metabase might be at instead of
    • If you’re an administrator, you’ll have configured this.
    • If you’re not, please ask your admin.
  2. Check whether your Metabase instance has moved. For example, if you were using a trial instance of Metabase, but you’re now in production, the URL might have changed.

I don’t know how my logins are managed

What do you use to log in?

  • An email address and password.

    You’re using Metabase or LDAP.

  • A button that launches a pop-up dialog.

    You’re using SSO.

  • I’m signing in at a site that doesn’t have in the URL.

  • I’m signing in at

    If you’re using Metabase Cloud, the password for the Metabase store (where you pay for things) is not automatically the same as the password for your Metabase instance (where you log in to look at data).

    If your password and URL are correct, go to Troubleshooting Metabase Cloud logins.
