Using Workbench

Once Workbench has been successfully deployed, you can use the Workbench Client to configure, control and use the Workbench features. To access the Workbench Client, open a web browser and navigate to:

http://<workbench-host>:8181/workbench

or

https://<workbench-host>:8443/workbench

Replace the <workbench-host> variable in the URL with the host name or IP address of the host where Workbench Server was installed.

Important
  • To enable HTTPS secure browser communication with Workbench, use the configuration steps under Configuring HTTPS for the Workbench Client.
  • The links above show the default ports. If you configured different ports, adjust these links accordingly.

When you enter one of the links above in a web browser, the Workbench login screen is displayed.
