Chapter 1. Accessing the web console
The OpenShift Container Platform web console is a user interface accessible from a web browser. Developers can use the web console to visualize, browse, and manage the contents of projects.
- Review the OpenShift Container Platform 4.x Tested Integrations page before you create the supporting infrastructure for your cluster.
1.2. Understanding and accessing the web console
The web console runs as a pod on the master. The static assets required to run the web console are served by the pod. After OpenShift Container Platform is successfully installed using
openshift-install create cluster, find the URL for the web console and login credentials for your installed cluster in the CLI output of the installation program. For example:
INFO Install complete! INFO Run 'export KUBECONFIG=<your working directory>/auth/kubeconfig' to manage the cluster with 'oc', the OpenShift CLI. INFO The cluster is ready when 'oc login -u kubeadmin -p <provided>' succeeds (wait a few minutes). INFO Access the OpenShift web-console here: https://console-openshift-console.apps.demo1.openshift4-beta-abcorp.com INFO Login to the console with user: kubeadmin, password: <provided>
Use those details to log in and access the web console.
For existing clusters that you did not install, you can use
oc whoami --show-console to see the web console URL.
