1.4. Logging into the admin console

After you create the initial admin account, you can log in to the admin console. In this console, you add users and register applications to be secured by Red Hat Single Sign-On.


  • You have an admin account for the admin console.


  1. Click the Administration Console link on the Welcome page or go directly to http://localhost:8080/auth/admin/ (the console URL).


    The Administration Console is generally referred to as the admin console for short in Red Hat Single Sign-On documentation.

  2. Enter the username and password you created on the Welcome page to open the admin console.
