# Kuzzle Admin Console
The Kuzzle Admin Console is a web application that lets you manage Kuzzle, including data, real-time notifications and security.
In both cases the configuration is the same and you'll be able to select which Kuzzle installation you want to manage.

# Connect to Kuzzle
The Kuzzle Admin Console automatically searches for Kuzzle on
ws://localhost:7512 and prompts you to introduce your own host and port if it is unable to connect to that URL.
At any time, you can reconfigure the Kuzzle Admin Console to connect to any Kuzzle installation by clicking the "Choose Environment" dropdown menu and then selecting "Create new". This feature allows you to manage multiple Kuzzle installations on a single Kuzzle Admin Console.
To create a connection to Kuzzle, provide its name (e.g. "Development" or "My First Kuzzle"), address (or hostname) and port. Optionally, select a color to identify the connection (e.g. red could be used to identify production environments).
Your Kuzzle Admin Console is now connected to Kuzzle.
# Create an Admin Account
At this point Kuzzle is not secure and any
anonymous user has full access. The Kuzzle Admin Console configurator will automatically request that an Admin Account be created. For the purpose of this tutorial, leave the reset default and anonymous rights unchecked, as we will use the
anonymous account in the next steps.
Once the Admin Account credentials have been created, use them to login.
You can now manage Kuzzle via the Kuzzle Admin Console.
