Upbound Console

Upbound’s Console is the command and control center for users to operate their organization’s internal cloud platforms. The Console consolidates management of your internal cloud platforms under a single pane of glass. You can view usage and logs, debug control plane operations, and more across all your control planes.


The default landing page for the Console is the control plane dashboard. On the dashboard is a table view of your managed control planes showing key details such as name, status, configuration version, and creation date. You can search the table by control plane name to filter down the table.

Above the dashboard is Upbound’s top navigation bar. Wherever you are in the product, the navigation bar allows you to access:

  • Control plane dashboard
  • Configurations list
  • Organization settings and management
  • Help and documentation
  • the Upbound Marketplace
  • Account management and an org picker (if you belong to several organizations)
