Start the Console

To start the WebLogic Administration Console:

  1. Start a WebLogic Administration Server. For more information, see Start and stop servers.
  2. Open a supported Web browser (See Supported Web Servers, Browsers, and Firewalls) and open the following URL:


    Where hostname is the DNS name or IP address of the Administration Server and port is the address of the port on which the Administration Server is listening for requests (7001 by default). If you start the Administration Server using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), you must add s after http as follows:


    For more information about setting up SSL for system administration, see Set up SSL.

    Note: If your Web browser is configured to send HTTP requests to a proxy server, you may need to configure your browser so that it does not send Administration Server HTTP requests to the proxy. If the Administration Server is running on the same machine as your Web browser, configure your browser so that requests sent to localhost or IP address are not sent to the proxy server.

  3. When the login page appears, enter the user name and the password you used to start the Administration Server (you may have specified this user name and password during the installation process), or enter a user name that is granted one of the default global security roles.

    The WebLogic Server Administration Console allows users to edit configurations or to perform other operations based on the default global security role they are granted. If this security role does not permit editing of configuration data, for example, the data is displayed in the Administration Console but is not editable. If the user attempts to perform a control operation that is not permitted, such as starting or stopping servers, the Administration Console displays an Access Denied error.

    Users granted the Admin default global role can perform any function using the Administration Console. The other default global roles (Deployer, Monitor, and Operator) primarily have read-only permissions, except for functions specific to their security role. See Default Global Roles for more information about the default global roles.
