Administrative console areas
Use the administrative console to create and manage objects in the WAS configuration such as resources, applications, and servers. Additionally, use the administrative console to view product messages. This topic describes the main areas that display on the administrative console.
To view the administrative console, ensure that the application server for the administrative console is running. Point a Web browser at the Web address for the administrative console, enter your user ID and, if needed, a password on the Login page.
You can resize the width of the navigation tree and workspace simultaneously by dragging the border between them to the left or the right. The change in width does not persist between administrative console user sessions.
The console has the following main areas.
The taskbar offers options for logging out of the console, accessing product information, and accessing support.

The navigation tree on the left side of the console offers links to console pages that you use to create and manage components in a WAS administrative cell.
Click a plus sign (+) beside a tree folder or item to expand the tree for the folder or item. Click a minus sign (-) to collapse the tree for the folder or item. Click an item in the tree view to toggle its state between expanded and collapsed.
The workspace on the right side of the console contains pages that you use to create and manage configuration objects such as servers and resources. Click links in the navigation tree to view the different types of configured objects. Within the workspace, click configured objects to view their configurations, run-time status, and options.
