WebLogic Remote Console

The WebLogic Remote Console is a lightweight, open source console that you can use to manage your WebLogic Server domain running anywhere, such as on a physical or virtual machine, in a container, Kubernetes, or in the Oracle Cloud. The Remote Console does not need to be colocated with the WebLogic Server domain.

You can install and run the Remote Console anywhere, and connect to your domain using WebLogic REST APIs. You simply launch the desktop application and connect to the Administration Server of your domain. Or, you can start the console server, launch the console in a browser and then connect to the Administration Server.

The Remote Console is fully supported with WebLogic Server,, and

Key Features of the WebLogic Remote Console

The WebLogic Remote Console provides an alternative WebLogic Server administration GUI that enables REST-based access to WebLogic management information, in alignment with current cloud-native trends. When connected to a WebLogic domain using the Remote Console, you can:

  • Configure WebLogic Server instances
  • Configure WebLogic Server clusters
  • Configure WebLogic Server services, such as database connectivity (JDBC), and messaging (JMS)
  • Deploy and undeploy applications
  • Start and stop servers and applications
  • Monitor server and application performance
  • View server and domain log files
  • View application deployment descriptors
  • Edit selected runtime application deployment descriptor elements

Differences With the WebLogic Server Administration Console

The WebLogic Remote Console is distinct from the WebLogic Server Administration Console that is deployed as part of your WebLogic domain. As you explore the WebLogic Remote Console, you’ll notice these key differences between the two consoles:

  • The user interface has been completely redesigned to conform to the Oracle Alta UI Design system and the Oracle Redwood theme included with Oracle JET.
  • The configuration and monitoring content is separated into separate pages in the Remote Console. In the WebLogic Server Administration Console, the configuration and runtime information is presented on one page. See Separation of Configuration and Runtime Data.
  • The Change Center is now expressed as a shopping cart. See Use the Shopping Cart.
  • Instead of logging directly into the Administration Console deployed in a WebLogic domain, the Remote Console connects to the Administration Server in a WebLogic domain, with the credentials supplied by the user, using WebLogic REST APIs.

Get Started

You can access the Remote Console through your browser or by running a desktop application. Both versions are available to download from The browser installer,, consists of the Remote Console JAR file and associated libraries necessary to use the console. For the desktop application, simply run the appropriate installer for your operating system.

You should also download and install the Remote Console extension for your WebLogic Server domain. The extension provides additional functionality that is not available with the console alone. Although installing the extension is optional, we recommend that you install it to get the optimum functionality from the Remote Console.

For details about installing and running the Remote Console, see Install and Configure the WebLogic Remote Console.
