About the Gloo UI

The Gloo UI is automatically installed in the Gloo management cluster. Let's explore some of the key features that you have access to when using the Gloo UI:

For a detailed overview of what information you can find in the Gloo UI, see Explore the Gloo UI.

To further protect the Gloo UI from unauthorized users, set up authentication and authorization (AuthN/AuthZ) for the Gloo UI by using OpenID Connect (OIDC) and Kubernetes role-based access control (RBAC). The Gloo UI supports OpenID Connect (OIDC) authentication from common providers such as Google, Okta, and Auth0. For more information, see Set up external auth for the Gloo UI.

Monitored metrics in the Gloo UI

The Gloo UI monitors and visualizes the following metrics from the built-in Prometheus server for the workloads in your cluster. You can see and work with these metrics by using the Gloo UI Graph.

To learn more about the built-in Prometheus server and the metrics that are available to you, see Prometheus.
