Launching the Admin Console
The Admin Console runs externally to the Alfresco user interface and therefore you launch the application independently. This allows you to run the Admin Console without the need to run Alfresco Share or Explorer.
Admin Console: System Summary
The System Summary page shows an overview of the status of the Alfresco repository, including the general system information, subsystem status, clustering settings, the current authentication chain, and details of which AMPs are applied to the system.
Admin Console: Consoles
The Consoles section on the Admin Console contains pages for administering models, tenants, and workflow definitions and property bundles at runtime in the repository.

Customizing the Alfresco Admin Console
