Fiorano Webconsole provides a web based monitoring tool for the Fiorano ESB Network and hence is commonly called as the Dashboard. Apart from the monitoring feature, it also provides support for launching, stopping and restarting an application using a web interface. Below section gives a comprehensive insight on how to log on to the Dashboard and about the features available in each section of the Dashboard.
Fiorano ESB Webconsole can be accessed by starting the Fiorano Enterprise Server (FES) and then opening http://localhost:1980/ESBDashboard on a web browser.
Alternatively, access the Fiorano Web Container from the link present in the welcome page at http://localhost:1980.
Log in to the Fiorano ESB Webconsole by entering the credentials configured for the FES; default credentials are:
- Username: admin
- Password: passwd.

Audit Management section in web console allows you to define audit policies and search for audit events as per your requirement. This section has been divided into 3 sub-sections.
- Event Viewer
- Audit Policy Store Synchronization
In this view, you can view/edit available audit policies. These policies define the actions that will be audited by the system. In a fresh installation, all policies are in passive state, meaning none of the action is audited. You can selectively enable the actions that they want to audit.
Figure 46: Policies
This view shows audit events based on the search criteria's specified by you. A comprehensive list of audit event filters is available to refine the audit events as per your requirement. This view also allows saving search preferences for later use, thus avoiding the painful task of creating audit filters each time you need to search. Below is a snapshot of Event Viewer page rendered after searching for certain audit events.
Figure 47: Event Viewer
Audit Policy Store Synchronization
This view shows the result of synchronization of audit policy store operation (See image below). A synchronized audit policy store means that the same audit policies (as in Enterprise Server) are active in peer servers as well. If stores are not synchronized, the status field will display 'false' and the reason for which the synchronization not achieved will be displayed under Comment column. You can force re-synchronization of audit policies with a particular peer server by clicking on the image shown under 'Synchronize' column.
Figure 48: Audit Policy Store Synchronization
This section allows you to search for different resources that have been configured to be used by Fiorano Event Processes. The search for the resources can be performed on three different views:
