In the URL field, enter the full URL to the DHIS2 instance (server) for which you want to capture and manage events for. Be careful to enter the http:// or https:// part of the URL as well. In the username and password field, enter the username and password for your account at the given DHIS2 instance. Note that you can use this login on the online DHIS2 server as well, i.e. you will be using the same account as you will use when logging into DHIS2 using a Web browser.
