Kong Admin GUI

Access the GUI with SSL enabled

  1. Configure

    The Admin GUI configuration settings in kong.conf to enable SSL.

  2. Navigate

    Go to your configured Admin GUI ip:port using the https:// protocol.

  3. Confirm

    If you are using Kong 0.30 or newer, make sure that the admin_listen configuration value binds to the desired network interface. By default, and for security reasons, this setting binds to the local interface only.

Note: If you access the Admin GUI over the http:// protocol the Admin GUI will not attempt to connect to the Kong Admin API over SSL.
