Okera UI Basics

The Okera UI is the browser-based interface used for:

For information about advanced administrator features, see UI Admin Settings. For information about SaaS tenant management, see SaaS Tenant Management.

Accessing the UI

To access the Okera UI, browse to the URL provided by your Okera administrator.

Supported Browsers

The Okera UI is supported on the latest versions of the following browsers:

  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Microsoft Edge
  • Apple Safari

Logging In

Use the Login screen to access the UI. The Login screen is configured to provide login options depending on your cluster configuration. These options include:

Okera Login Screen
Example login screen with Active Directory and Token login

A Note on SSL

If Okera is configured to run with SSL enabled using a self-signed certificate, the SSL certificate must be decrypted on your local system for the UI to be accessible to your browser. If, upon navigating to the UI, the browser warns that the site is not trusted, the SSL certificate may need to be installed.

Please note that even if you bypass your browser's certificate warning, the Okera UI will not work, with the Login screen reporting this message:

Could not contact server. Check your network connection and try again later.

If you see this message, it could mean you need to install the SSL certificate. Contact your Okera administrator.

Note: Okera does not support SSL termination on a load balancer.

Using the UI

After you log into the Okera UI, an Okera Home page appears. Depending on the roles and permissions assigned your Okera username, you will see either the Call-to-Action Home page or the User Profile Home page. In addition, the options available to you vary, based on your roles and permissions. Use the menu options in the left-side menu to access other areas of the UI. See The Okera Call-to-Action Home Page and The Okera User Profile Home Page.

Logging Out

To logout, select your username at the bottom of the navigation menu and select Logout.


Your credentials are saved in the browser until either your token expires, or you explicitly log out. Be aware of this security issue when sharing access to your computer.

Block Use of the UI on Mobile Devices and Tablets

You can block access to the Okera UI on mobile devices and tablets. Use the configuration parameter, BLOCK_WEB_UI_FOR_MOBILE_CLIENTS, to control this behavior. Valid values for this parameter are true (the UI is blocked on mobile devices) and false (the UI is not blocked on mobile devices). The default is false.
