The WSO2 Identity Server Management Console is a Web-based user interface. It allows users to interact with a running Identity Server instance, without having to directly interfere with any underlying configuration files. The controls in the Management Console are usually self-explanatory. However, this page provides some additional insight on what can be configured here. The product documentation provides further information about the technology and offers guidance on using the features and configurations.

The Management Console makes use of the default HTTPS servlet transport, which is configured in the catalina-server.xml file in the <IS_HOME>/repository/conf/tomcat directory. It is essential for this transport to be properly configured in this file for the Management Console to be accessible to users. For information on how to access the management console, see Running the Product.

If you are using Mac OS with High Sierra, you may encounter the following warning message when logging in to the management console due to a compression issue that exists in the High Sierra SDK.

WARN {org.owasp.csrfguard.log.JavaLogger} -  potential cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attack thwarted (user:<anonymous>, ip:xxx.xxx.xx.xx, method:POST, uri:/carbon/admin/login_action.jsp, error:required token is missing from the request)

To avoid this issue, open the <IS_HOME>/repository/conf/tomcat/catalina-server.xml file and change the compression="on" to compression="off" in the HTTPS connector configuration, and restart WSO2 IS.

The following screen depicts the full overview of the management console.

The console's menu items appear in the left hand side of the Identity Server screen and the useable features appear in the center of the screen and depend on the menu item you select from the left menu. The Management Console of the Identity Server provides a list of tools and features that you can use. These are divided among the following.

While these menu items are usually divided into MainMonitorConfigure and Tools, additional menus may appear depending on the availability of features. Each of these menus carry a list of sub menus. A product's menus and sub menus may vary depending on the product version and any additional feature you have installed to provision the server.
