When you start the Automation Engine Pilot, a Logon Information dialog will appear and you have to enter the User name, Password and the Server each time. The Pilot doesn't remember the previous log on information.
The Pilot logon Information is saved in the bg.properties file. Make sure you have Read-write permissions to the folder that holds the bg.properties file. Following steps guide you to set folder permissions:
On your Mac, go to Applications > Right click the Automation Engine Client XX.X.X folder (applies only to 10.0, 10.1).
Click Get Info and go to Sharing and Permissions.
Add your Mac user in the list and set the privilege to Read & Write > Apply the Privilege to enclosed items
Now, logon to your Automation Engine Server from the Pilot.
The next time you login to the Automation Engine Pilot on Mac, the logon information from the previous attempt will be displayed.
From Automation Engine 12.0 onwards, the bg.properties file is located in this folder > users:currentuser:Esko
