WLST - Mbean Tree Navigation

Card Puncher Data Processing


How to navigate in the mbean tree of weblogic.

Weblogic Mbean Tree


Default Tree (Connection Location)

After a connection to the Weblogic Server, you are in the serverConfig directory.

wls:/offline> connect('biadmin', 'welcome1', 't3://exalytics-01:7001')
Connecting to t3://exalytics-01:7001 with userid biadmin ...
Successfully connected to Admin Server 'AdminServer' that belongs to domain 'bifoundation_domain'.

Warning: An insecure protocol was used to connect to the
server. To ensure on-the-wire security, the SSL port or
Admin port should be used instead.


Tree Root Directory

You can navigate to another tree with the following function

  • config: (Deprecated) Navigate to the last MBean in configuration hierarchy. config
  • custom: Navigate to the root of custom MBeans. custom custom. To navigate to the custom MBean hierarchy on the Runtime MBean Server
  • domainConfig: Navigate to last domain configuration MBean or root. domainConfig
  • domainCustom: Navigate to the root of domain custom MBeans. domainCustom. To navigate to the custom MBean hierarchy on the Domain Runtime MBean Server
  • domainRuntime: Navigate to last domain runtime MBean or root. domainRuntime
  • edit: Navigate to last edit configuration MBean or root. edit
  • jndi: Navigate to the JNDI tree. jndi
  • runtime: (Deprecated) Navigates to the last MBean in runtime hierarchy runtime
  • serverConfig: Navigate to the last configuration MBean or root. serverConfig
  • serverRuntime: Navigate to the last runtime MBean or root. serverRuntime
wls:/bifoundation_domain/serverConfig> serverRuntime()
Location changed to serverRuntime tree. This is a read-only tree with ServerRuntimeMBean as the root
For more help, use help(serverRuntime)


Tree Navigation

From a root directory, you can navigate in the tree with the following commands:


Lists all the child beans and/or attributes for the current configuration or runtime bean.

In the customDomain, the ls command return only the child bean. The option below doesn't work !

You can optionally control the output by specifying an argument. If no argument is specified, the command lists all child beans and attributes in the domain.

wls:/bifoundation_domain/serverConfig> cd('Servers')
wls:/bifoundation_domain/serverConfig/Servers> ls()
dr--   AdminServer
dr--   bi_server1

where the attributes:

  • d designates an MBean with which you can use the cd command (analogous to a directory in a file system),
  • r indicates a readable property,
  • w indicates a writeable property,
  • and x an executable operation.

The ls command property information is based on MBeanInfo; it does not reflect user permissions.

Get Current bean attributes

To get a list of all the attribute names and values for the current directory (ie the current configuration or runtime bean).

wls:/bifoundation_domain/serverConfig>ls(pwd(), returnMap='true', returnType='a')

  • cd('myserver')

To navigate back to a parent MBean, enter cd(’..’)

By using the Weblogic - MBean Browser/Explorer, you can generate it:

Wlst Generate Cd

It will for instance generate the following code:



“print working directory” (pwd)

wls:/bifoundation_domain/domainCustom> pwd()

wls:/bifoundation_domain/domainCustom> cd ('EMDomain')
wls:/bifoundation_domain/domainCustom/EMDomain> pwd()



Returns the value of the specified attribute.
