MobileFirst Operations Console configuration details

The console is packaged as a WAR application for us to deploy to the application server. You need to make some specific configurations for this application.

Before proceeding, review Manual installation on WebSphere Application Server and WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment for the configuration details that are common to all services.

The console WAR file is in mfp_install_dir/MobileFirstServer/mfp-admin-ui.war.

We can define the context root as we want. However, usually it is /mfpconsole.


Mandatory JNDI properties

We can set JNDI properties with the WebSphere Application Server administration console. Go to Applications > Application Types > WebSphere enterprise applications > application_name > Environment entries for Web modules and set the entries.

You need to define the mfp.admin.endpoint property. The typical value for this property is *://*:*/<adminContextRoot>.

For more information about the JNDI properties, see JNDI properties for MobileFirst Operations Console.


Security roles

The following roles are defined for the application:

Any user that is mapped to a security role of the console must also be mapped to the same security role of the administration service.
