FlexRule Workbench is a responsive web-based administration and management console for FlexRule Server.
You can use the workbench to perform the following tasks.
- Manage Packages and Services
- Provide different access levels to users and applications
- Manage Agents and related compatibility with Services and Jobs
- Administer Licenses for Server and Runtime
- See the health and logs of services
These are the resources you can manage in the workbench:
- Schedule Jobs
- Event Groups
Open your web browser and navigate to the address you defined during the workbench configuration step or in the FlexRule server configuration file (i.e., the default example is http://localhost:9010/).
Once you open the workbench, it will ask you to log into the system if you have not logged in already, or if your authentication token is expired. NOTE: the duration of the token is 24 hours.
Simply enter your username and password and press the “Sign In” button. The default login is “Admin” and you have already entered the password on configuring the Master Server during the installation process.
Once you have logged in, you will see your username.
To sign out, select the “Sign Out” button on the toolbar at the top right of the Workbench view, see below showing the button.
After you sign in to the system, you will see the home view of the Workbench including the following main sections.
To navigate to different parts of the Workbench, use the left-hand side navigation:
There are two main menu items in the navigation, Execution Server and Administration.
The Execution Server menu items are related to any execution of deployed services. Items include Packages, Services, Workflows, and Jobs.
If you want to see the status of running services, workflows, and jobs and test them you can select the relevant options under this section. You can also edit the services and select which versions you want to run.
This section is for administering all aspects of FlexRule Workbench.
If you want to add, remove, or edit the users, applications, agents and different roles select the relevant options in this section. You can have full control over providing access to different users or applications
See Access Permission to learn how to provide access to different packages and manage roles.
