Finding the WebSphere Automation UI

After WebSphere Automation is installed and an instance is created, a cluster administrator can use the Red Hat® OpenShift® console or the Red Hat OpenShift CLI (oc) to find the URL for the IBM Automation foundation. The IBM Automation foundation UI contains the WebSphere Automation UI.

Procedure

  • Finding the URL by using the Red Hat OpenShift console
    1. Open a browser to the access URL for the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform console.
    2. For the username and password, enter the credentials for an Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform cluster user profile with administrator privileges.
    3. In the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform console, select Operators > Installed Operators.
    4. From the Projects list, select the project that contains the WebSphere Automation instance.
    5. From Name, select WebSphere Automation.
    6. Select the All Instances page.
    7. From Name, click the name of the entry with kind WebSphereAutomation.
      The default instance name is wsa.
    8. On the Details page, click the link under IBM Automation UI of Endpoints.
      A browser window opens to the IBM Automation UI. Store this URL so that you can communicate it to other users. Use this URL to access the IBM Automation UI login page. Within the IBM Automation UI, click menu icon > Operate > Application runtimes to open the WebSphere Automation UI.
  • Finding the URL by using the Red Hat OpenShift CLI
    Use the following oc command to find the UI URL. Replace instance_name with the name of the WebSphere Automation instance, and replace instance_namespace with the namespace of the WebSphere Automation instance:
    oc get websphereautomation instance_name -n instance_namespace -o jsonpath='{.status.endpoints.automationUI}'

What to do next

When you access the URL in a browser, the IBM Automation UI opens. Store this URL so that you can communicate it to other users. Use this URL to access the IBM Automation UI login page. Within the IBM Automation UI, click menu icon > Operate > Application runtimes to open the WebSphere Automation UI.
