Docker Enterprise Container Cloud web UI

Docker Enterprise Container Cloud web UI

The Docker Enterprise (DE) Container Cloud web UI is mainly designed to create and update the managed clusters as well as add or remove machines to or from an existing managed cluster. It also allows attaching existing UCP clusters.

You can use the DE Container Cloud web UI to obtain the management cluster details including endpoints, release version, and so on. The management cluster update occurs automatically with a new release change log available through the DE Container Cloud web UI.

The DE Container Cloud web UI is a JavaScript application that is based on the React framework. The DE Container Cloud web UI is designed to work on a client side only. Therefore, it does not require a special back end. It interacts with the Kubernetes and Keycloak APIs directly. The DE Container Cloud web UI uses a Keycloak token to interact with DE Container Cloud API and download kubeconfig for the management and managed clusters.

The DE Container Cloud web UI uses NGINX that runs on a management cluster and handles the DE Container Cloud web UI static files. NGINX proxies the Kubernetes and Keycloak APIs for the DE Container Cloud web UI.
