curl -X PUT -u cast:cast http://localhost:8088/rest/user/admin-role 


If you are using the Standalone Dashboards for Docker deployment, then you will need to run this command from within the Docker container itself. To enter the container use the following command:

docker exec -it <id|name of your container>

When the BECOME ADMIN action has been completed, you should then log in to the Dashboard and grant roles to other users as necessary for your deployment - see User roles.
