Web Administration Overview


The TIBCO Streaming Web Administration Interface is a web-based application that offers secure cluster management and configuration convenience from one location, including:

  • Dynamic service discovery.

  • Hierarchical views of clusters, with the option to drill down to the specified managed entity.

  • Node lifecycle management, including node install/stop/start/removal.

  • Application lifecycle management.

  • Logging management.

  • Security management.

You log into the Web Administration Interface from a running node via Studio or the epadmin command line.

From the Command Line:

Run a command like the following:

C:\TIBCO\str\11.0>epadmin --servicename sbnode.C display web --type webservice
[sbnode.C] Web Service Name = admin-ui
[sbnode.C] Engine = System::administration
[sbnode.C] Base URL = http://sbuser:8008/admin-ui
[sbnode.C] Authentication Realm = default-realm
[sbnode.C] Documentation Endpoint =
[sbnode.C] Status = STARTED

Copy-paste the base URL into your browser. If your node is connected using the default authentication realm, enter your machine's user name with no password:

From Studio:

Right-click a started node in the Clusters View and select Open Admin Web.

The Sign in dialog appears as described above.

You can logout from the Admin Web by clicking on the Log out button in the right corner of the UI.


After successfully logging into a node, you are automatically logged into all currently active managed nodes in the cluster. You can manage multiple clusters from the Web Administration Interface. If an entity fails to connect with the server, an error will be displayed. Notice the Clusters view in the left-hand pane and the child entities displayed in the right-hand pane, as shown below:
