3. Enter the URL, user names and password for your server. If the server hosts multiple organization, enter the name of your organization as well.

The defaults are:

Commercial editions: http://localhost:8080/jasperserver-pro/
Community edition: http://localhost:8080/jasperserver/
     Organization: There is no default value for this field. If the server hosts multiple organizations, enter the ID of the organization to which you belong.
     User name: jasperadmin
     Password: jasperadmin

Note that if you are upgrading from a previous version of Jaspersoft Studio, the old URL (http://localhost:8080/jasperserver-pro/services/repository ) still works.

4. Click Test Connection.
5. If the test fails, check your URL, organization, user name, and password.

Connection problems can sometimes be caused by Eclipse's secure storage feature, which improves your security by storing passwords in an encrypted format. For more information, refer to our Eclipse Secure Storage in Jaspersoft Studio Community wiki page.

6. If the test is successful, click Finish.

The server appears in the Repository Explorer.
