To determine the port

  1. In the left panel of the WebSphere web console, expand Servers > Server Types.
  2. Select WebSphere application servers.
  3. Select the application server.
  4. Expand Ports. The WC_defaulthost value is the port the application server is using for application. 

In this example, the port is 9080.


To determine the URL

  1. In the left panel of the WebSphere web console, expand Applications > Application Types.
  2. Select Websphere enterprise applications.
  3. Select your application.
  4. Select Context Root or Web Modules. The context root will be displayed.

For example, the context root of the IVT (Installation Verification Tool) application is /ivt. This means that when requesting, the IVT application is requested.


The application can be accessed at hostname:port/context_root. Following are some of the default URLs of the applications automatically included with WebSphere. Replace with the hostname of your WebSphere application server.
