Access the Administration Consoles for Oracle Java Cloud Service

You can use various consoles to administer the software that an Oracle Java Cloud Service Software instance is running, and to also administer related Oracle Cloud services.

Access an Administration Console for a Service Instance

From an Oracle Java Cloud Service instance, you can access the administration consoles for the software that the service instance is running.

You can access these consoles:

  • WebLogic Server Administration Console

  • Fusion Middleware Control Console

  • Load Balancer Console (Oracle Traffic Director only)

Note:

By default, if you created your service instance in an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic region, external access to these administration consoles is disabled for security purposes. If you did not enable console access while provisioning your service instance, see Enabling Console Access in an Oracle Java Cloud Service Instance. If you created your service instance in an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure region, this procedure is not necessary. Access to the administration consoles is enabled by default in these regions.

Note:

If you created your service instance and chose not to assign public IP addresses, then these administration consoles are not directly accessible from the Internet. They are accessible only from within your private IP network, or from your on-premises data center over a VPN network.

Note:

Prior to modifying the default configuration of these software components, see Administration Best Practices. For example, if you disable a console or modify the default port number used to access it, the shortcuts described here may not work.
To access a console:
  1. Access the Oracle Java Cloud Service console.
  2. Click Manage this instance Menu icon for the desired service instance, and then open the console that you want to access:

    A new browser opens and you are redirected to the selected console’s login page.

    If the server is protected with a self-signed certificate, you will be warned that this certificate is not trusted.

  3. Accept the certificate if prompted. These steps are browser-dependent.
    • If you are using Firefox, click Advanced , click Add Exception and then click Confirm Security Exception.

    • If you are using Chrome, click Advanced and then click Proceed.

  4. When the console login page appears, enter the Oracle WebLogic Server user name and password you provided when you created the service instance.
    If you created this service instance from a QuickStart template, these credentials were generated for you and placed in an archive file that you downloaded to your local machine.

Access the Console of a Related Oracle Cloud Service

You can access the consoles for related Oracle Cloud services, such as Oracle Database Cloud Service, from the Oracle Java Cloud Service console.

  1. Access the Oracle Java Cloud Service console.
  2. Click the Navigation menu icon menu at the top left of the page, expand Services, and then choose the service that you want to access.
    For example, choose Database Classic to access the Oracle Database Cloud Service console.
