Management Console

This guide describe how you can use the Management Console to configure and monitor the Orchesto object storage server.

Overview

The Management Console is a web-based management tool for the Orchesto storage server. To access it, go to the gateway endpoint using your web browser and log in with a valid security credential.

To manage Orchesto itself, make sure to use the administrative security credential. This will grant you admin privileges, providing access to all features in the management console.

On the left-hand side of the management console is the sidebar, which provides access to all principle management functions. At the top of the console is the top-bar, where you will find buttons to toggle the sidebar, access documentation, notifications and user menu.
