WebLogic Remote Console

The WebLogic Remote Console is a lightweight, open source console that you can use to manage domain configurations of WebLogic Server Administration Servers or WebLogic Deploy Tooling (WDT) metadata models.

The advantage of the WebLogic Remote Console is that it does not need to be colocated with the WebLogic Server domain. You can install and run the WebLogic Remote Console from one computer and connect to a domain running anywhere: a physical or virtual machine, in a container, Kubernetes, or in the Oracle Cloud. The WebLogic Remote Console connects to your domain using WebLogic REST APIs.

As for the WDT metadata models, they are descriptions of a WebLogic Server domain configuration, generally written in YAML but occasionally JSON. These models are not connected to a live domain and you edit them ‘offline’ before using the WebLogic Deploy Tooling (WDT) to build or modify live domains from the models. See the WebLogic Deploy Tooling documentation for more information.

Simply launch the desktop application and connect to an Administration Server or WDT model. Or, you can start the console in a browser and then connect to the Administration Server.

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