Starting the Web Console
The Drill Web Console is one of several client interfaces you can use to access Drill.
To open the Drill Web Console, launch a web browser, and go to one of the following URLs depending on the configuration of HTTPS support:
http://<IP address or host name>:8047
Use this URL when HTTPS support is disabled (the default).
https://<IP address or host name>:8047
Use this URL when HTTPS support is enabled.
Use this URL when running ./drill-embedded.
Drill 1.2 and Later
If user authentication is not enabled, all the Web Console controls appear to users as well as administrators:
Note: As of Drill 1.12, users must enter a username to issue queries through the Query page in the Drill Web Console if user impersonation is enabled and authentication is disabled. To re-run a query from the Profiles page, users must also submit a username. See REST API for more information.
If user authentication is enabled, Drill prompts you for a user name/password:
If an administrator logs in, all the Web Console controls appear: Query, Profiles, Storage, Metrics, Threads, and Options. The Profiles page for administrators contains the profiles of all queries executed on a cluster. Only administrators can see and use the Storage tab to view, update, or add a new storage plugin configuration. Only administrators can see and use the Threads tab, which provides information about threads running in Drill.
If a user, who is not an administrator, logs in, the Web Console controls are limited to Query, Metrics, and Profiles. The Profiles tab for a non-administrator user contains the profiles of all queries the user issued either through ODBC, JDBC, or the Web Console.
