### Apply the modifications
Now that you made various modifications to your configuration, you need to apply them it so that all OBM components are synchronized.

### Login with your newly created user
* You should be back to the front page.
* Enter login **admin**.
* Enter the password you chose.
* Make sure **obm.domain** is the selected *Domain*.
* Click *Submit* button
### Start a healthcheck
