The Node terminal gives users a remote ssh session to the Node. This can be very helpful in times where you need full control of the gateway.

Accessing the Node terminal

The Node terminal is only available to Organization Owners, and can be accessed either through the ACTION menu on the Node page or by hitting CTRL+R and type:

ssh [node name]


As you open the terminal, you are logged in as the same user as the microservicebus-node service is running with. Depending on your setup, this might only give you limited privileges.

Also, the back-end of the terminal is hosted by microservicebus-node process. If you kill this process, -you terminate the terminal session.

Be careful, and remember

-With great powers comes great responsibilities!
