Connect to the UCP web UI

Connect to the UCP web UI

After you deploy a new or attach an existing UCP cluster to a management cluster, start managing your cluster using the UCP web UI.

To connect to the UCP web UI:

  1. Log in to the Docker Enterprise (DE) Container Cloud web UI with the writer permissions.

  2. Switch to the required project using the Switch Project action icon located on top of the main left-side navigation panel.

  3. In the Clusters tab, click the More action icon in the last column of the required UCP cluster and select Cluster info.

  4. In the dialog box with the cluster information, copy the UCP UI endpoint.

  5. Paste the copied IP to a web browser and use the same credentials that you use to access the DE Container Cloud web UI.

Warning

To ensure the DE Container Cloud stability in managing the DE Container Cloud-based UCP clusters, a number of UCP API functions is not available for the DE Container Cloud-based UCP clusters as compared to the attached UCP clusters that are deployed not by DE Container Cloud. Use the DE Container Cloud web UI or CLI for this functionality instead.

See Reference Architecture: UCP API limitations for details.

Caution

The UCP web UI contains help links that lead to the Docker Enterprise documentation suite. Besides UCP and Docker Engine - Enterprise, which are integrated with DE Container Cloud, that documentation suite covers other Docker Enterprise components and cannot be fully applied to the DE Container Cloud-based UCP clusters. Therefore, to avoid any sort of misconceptions, before you proceed with UCP web UI documentation, read Reference Architecture: UCP API limitations and make sure you are using the documentation of the supported UCP version as per Release Compatibility Matrix.
