Configuring access to the Dynamic Workload Console

As soon as you finish installing the Dynamic Workload Console, you can launch it by logging in at the following link:
You can access the Dynamic Workload Console from any computer in your environment using a web browser through the secure HTTPS protocol and using the credentials specified at installation time.

By default, the Dynamic Workload Console is configured to use a local file-based user repository. Users defined in the user registry can log in to the Dynamic Workload Console and need to be associated to a role to be able access the Dynamic Workload Console features (see “Configuring roles to access the Dynamic Workload Console.)

If you use a central user registry that is based on the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) to manage users and groups and provide single sign-on, then you can set up an LDAP server and create an LDAP user registry to use with the Dynamic Workload Console. You can implement an LDAP user repository in place of the default file-based user registry by configuring the sample authentication templates provided in XML format. The following are the supported LDAP servers and the corresponding sample template that can be configured to replace the configuration file currently in use:
  • File-based: auth_basicRegistry_config.xml
  • IBM® Directory Server: auth_IDS_config.xml
  • OpenLDAP: auth_OpenLDAP_config.xml
  • Windows Server Active Directory: auth_AD_config.xml

In addition you can also add a line

See Configuring HCL Workload Automation using templates for more information about the templates and the location.

Note: If two or more instances of Dynamic Workload Console share the same database repository for their settings, but they are not configured to be in a High Availability configuration, they all must be at the same fix pack level.
