Jama Connect User Guide

Configuring the Admin Console settings (traditional)

Jama Connect uses Replicated technology to deliver all microservices to self-hosted customers. Replicated software is a container orchestration tool that provides the interface, Admin Console, for Jama Connect.

Replicated and Jama Connect are hosted on the same application server, running on different ports.

The Admin Console stores settings, such as SSL certificates and database connection information, that Jama Connect uses to start and run correctly. Some of its functions include:

  • Manage the run state of Jama Connect

  • Perform upgrades

  • Synchronize license renewals

Many of the settings for the Admin Console are configured during installation. However, you can make changes to the settings whenever you need.
