Logging in

Log in to your IBM Event Streams UI from a supported web browser. Determining the URL depends on your platform.

Using the OpenShift Container Platform CLI

Event Streams uses OpenShift routes. To retrieve the URL for your Event Streams UI, use the following command:

  1. Log in to your Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform as a cluster administrator by using the oc CLI.
  2. Run the following command:

    oc get routes -n <namespace> -l app.kubernetes.io/name=admin-ui
    

    The following is an example output, and you use the value from the HOST/PORT column to log in to your UI in a web browser:

    NAME                        HOST/PORT                                                           PATH   SERVICES                    PORT   TERMINATION   WILDCARD
    my-eventstreams-ibm-es-ui   my-eventstreams-ibm-es-ui-myproject.apps.my-cluster.my-domain.com          my-eventstreams-ibm-es-ui   3000   reencrypt     None
    
  3. Enter the address in a web browser. Add https:// in front of the HOST/PORT value. For example:
    https://my-eventstreams-ibm-es-ui-myproject.apps.my-cluster.my-domain.com
    
  4. Use your credentials provided to you by your cluster administrator. A cluster administrator can manage access rights by following the instructions in managing access. Enter your username and password to access the Event Streams UI.

Using OpenShift Container Platform UI

Event Streams uses OpenShift routes. To retrieve the URL for your Event Streams UI, you can find it in the OpenShift UI:

  1. Log in to the OpenShift Container Platform web console using your login credentials.
  2. Expand Operators in the navigation on the left, and click Installed Operators.
    Operators > Installed Operators
  3. Locate the operator that manages your Event Streams instance in the namespace. It is called IBM Event Streams in the NAME column.
  4. Click the IBM Event Streams link in the row and click the Event Streams tab. This lists the Event Streams operands related to this operator.
  5. Find your instance in the Name column and click the link for the instance.
    IBM Event Streams > Event Streams > Instance
  6. A link to the IBM Event Streams UI is displayed under the label Admin UI. Click the link to open the IBM Event Streams UI login page in your browser tab.
  7. Use your credentials provided to you by your cluster administrator. A cluster administrator can manage access rights by following the instructions in managing access. Enter your username and password to access the Event Streams UI.

Logging out

Logging out of Event Streams does not log you out of your session entirely. To log out, you must first log out of your IBM Cloud Pak foundational services session, and then log out of your Event Streams session.

To log out of Event Streams:

  1. Log in to your IBM Cloud Platform foundational services management console as an administrator. For more information, see the IBM Cloud Platform foundational services documentation.
  2. Click the user icon in the upper-right corner of the window, and click Log out.
  3. Return to your Event Streams UI and click the user icon in the upper-right corner of the window, and click Log out.
