The Code42 console is the browser-based environment you use to detect and investigate concerns, as well as manage your Code42 environment. This tutorial describes the basics of the Code42 console.

Access the Code42 console

To access the Code42 console:

  1. From a supported web browser, visit the URL for your Code42 environment:

Your credentials only work at one of these URLs. If you don't know the URL for your Code42 environment, contact our Customer Champions for support.

Code42 console URL was formerly For more information, see Changes to US2 server URLs in August 2021.
  1. Enter your Code42 username and password.
    The Code42 console dashboard appears.
Two-factor authentication
If you see a prompt for an authentication code, and your organization has not configured two-factor authentication for local users, verify that your email address is correct. 
Code42 console access
The content and options displayed in the Code42 console are determined by the user roles of the signed-in user. An administrator is allowed full access to configure all aspects of the Code42 environment, while end users only receive access to settings related directly to their individual devices and accounts. In addition, you must have certain product plans to see all the available menu options. Contact your Customer Success Manager (CSM) for assistance with product plans. 

Code42 console basics

Menus and general navigation

  • At the top of the screen, the toolbar allows you to view your account profile and change language settings as well as easy access to key information.
  • The navigation menu at the top contains links for viewing and managing the different components of your Code42 environment.
  • Action menus display contextual actions and options.

Columns and lists

(Incydr Basic and Advanced, CrashPlan Cloud, and other plans only)

  • Sort any column by clicking the column title.
  • Column widths are adjustable, and the width settings are remembered across sessions.

Settings in the Code42 console

Apply settings

(Incydr Basic and Advanced, CrashPlan Cloud, and other plans)

For settings in the Code42 console that impact user devices, there are three options for applying settings: save, push, and lock.

  • Saving a setting applies it for new devices in the future. Saving settings does not affect any existing devices.
  • Push button Pushing a setting changes it on user devices, but still allows users to change the setting later.
  • Lock button Locking a setting pushes it out to user devices and also prevents users from changing the setting later.


Applies changes to future devices Applies changes to existing devices Allows users to change settings
Save Yes No Yes
Push Yes Yes Yes
Lock Yes Yes No

Inherit settings

Your Code42 environment can hold many organizations, and each organization (called parent organizations) can contain other organizations (called child organizations). Each organization is visible in the Code42 console at Organizations. By default, each new organization inherits the settings of its parent organization.

Incydr Professional and Enterprise 

From Organization Details, click the edit icon to enable or disable inheritance for those organization settings. 

Inherit Settings  

Incydr Basic and Advanced, CrashPlan Cloud, and other plans

From the action menu, select Edit to enable or disable inheritance for an organization.

Inherit settings from parent

Tips on inheritance
  • When you disable inheritance for an organization, that organization (and any child organizations belonging to that organization) will not receive existing or new settings from the parent organization.
  • All newly-created organizations inherit all settings from their parent organizations by default.
  • Inheritance can be enabled or disabled for groups of settings, such as settings for Reporting, Security, for example.
  • If you re-enable inheritance for an organization, any unique settings are lost and replaced by the parent organization's settings when you click Save.
  • Depending on the settings you have configured in your own Code42 environment, enabling or disabling inheritance can apply settings that may lead to data loss, such as disk quotas or cold storage settings.

Command-line interface

In addition to the graphical user interface of the Code42 console, you can also interact with your Code42 environment through a command-line interface (CLI). To access the command-line interface:

  1. From anywhere in the Code42 console, enter Ctrl + Shift + X
    The command-line interface appears.
  2. Enter commands at the top of the command-line interface.
  3. Review the output below.
