How to access the WebSphere web console

You can access the web console for a variety of different WebSphere products, such as an application server, a network deployment manager (dmgr), a job manager, or an admin agent. There is no web console for a Liberty installation. Technically, the web console is known as the Integrated Solutions Console. To access the web console, ensure the appropriate server is running.

Also ensure that the HTTP or HTTPS port is open in iptables or firewalld. Check the was_home/profiles/your_profile_name/properties/portdef.props file to determine the ports being used. 

WC_adminhost=9060
WC_adminhost_secure=9043

 

Or, the port may be configured in the was_home/profiles/your_profile/config/cells/your_cell/nodes/your_node/serverindex.xml file.

<specialEndpoints xmi:id="NamedEndPoint_10" endPointName="WC_adminhost">
  <endPoint xmi:id="EndPoint_10" host="*" port="9060">
</specialEndpoints>

<specialEndpoints xmi:id="NamedEndPoint_10" endPointName="WC_adminhost_secure">
  <endPoint xmi:id="EndPoint_10" host="*" port="9043">
</specialEndpoints>

 

The URL for the web console will be the hostname of the server, followed by the HTTP or HTTPS port, followed by /ibm/console. Following are the default HTTP and HTTPS URLs.

 

If setting up IBM Job Manager, following is the default URL.

 

When accessing the web console, if you are prompted to only provide a User ID and no password, this suggests that the application server or deployment manager is configured to use the local operating system as the source of usernames. In this scenario, use a username from the operating system of the application server or deployment manager.

 

When accessing the web console, if you are prompted to only provide a User ID and a password, this suggests that the application server or deployment manager is configured to use a federated repository or LDAP as the source of the username and password. In this scenario, use a username and password from LDAP, or a username and password that was created when the federated repository was set up.

 

After signing in, the web console should be displayed.
