MobileFirst Operations Console overview

The MobileFirst Operations Console is a web application that provides a graphical user interface to simplify some MobileFirst development and administration tasks.

We can open the console from a browser. If you have installed IBM MobileFirstâ„¢ Platform Command Line Interface (CLI), we can also open the console by running the mfpdev server console command. For more information, see Opening the MobileFirst Operations Console.

To access the console, you need a valid user name and password, which is assigned to you by your MobileFirst Server administrator according to our role. The MobileFirst Development Server is preconfigured with the admin/admin combination.

This figure shows a screen capture of the Operations Console Dashboard.
