- add/delete/upade notebooks
- access to all tasks executed
- add/delete/update users (only for Pro)

Set up Admin Panel¶
You need to define three environment variables during the deployment to access the Admin Panel. You can do this by adding them in
.env file if you are using
docker-compose method for deployment:
DJANGO_SUPERUSER_USERNAME=your_user_name DJANGO_SUPERUSER_PASSWORD=your_secret_password DJANGO_SUPERUSER_EMAIL=your_email
If you are not using
docker-compose for deployment, then the process of setting environment variables depends on the cloud provider where you deploy the Mercury. For example in Heroku, you can set them with command line:
heroku config:set DJANGO_SUPERUSER_USERNAME=your_user_name heroku config:set DJANGO_SUPERUSER_PASSWORD=your_secret_password heroku config:set DJANGO_SUPERUSER_EMAIL=your_email
