Using the Akula Management Console
The Akula Management Console enables you to manage individual app scopes on an Akula Server. For each app scope, you can create and send push notifications and client actions, view push and action history, override default app properties, create roles using existing groups and permissions, and create log in and sync client rules.
The Akula Management Console is compatible with Akula Server version 2.0 or higher.
To open the Akula Management Console:
- In a web browser, enter the the URL of the server where the management console is deployed followed by the name of the Management Console app. For example, if the console is on your local machine then enter Set up the Akula Server Environment.) (If localhost fails to resolve on a Mac system, see "Update the hosts file (Mac only)" in
- In the Login screen, enter the URL of the Akula Server, your user name, and your password. For example, if the Akula Server is on your local machine, enter
http://localhost:8080/akulaas the URL, and use the default Akula administrator account - user name:
admin. Click Login. If the text fields are automatically populated and a server login error occurs, try entering the field information manually.
- The App Scopes screen appears listing app scopes defined for the Akula Server. Click the name of the app scope you want to manage.
The App Scope page appears when you first log in to an Akula Server or when you enter the page's URL directly in your browser. After you select an app scope, you can view a different app scope by selecting it from the App Scopes drop-down list in the top menu bar.
