Sometimes it can be worthwhile to see if the Jama Application login page is running from inside the Application server (without the need for any outside browser). To do that, we can curl the login webpage.

  1. At the command line of the Application server use command:
kubectl get svc nginx

to retrieve the IP of the ngnix webserver running the application. This will show you the IP address under the 'EXTERNAL-IP' section

support@support-app-server:~$ kubectl get svc nginx
nginx ClusterIP <none> 80/TCP 3d7h

   2. Take the IP address (in this case and curl the login screen address

curl -I -


This output will return an HTTP status code. If the status is 200, the application is up:

support@aws-support-app-02:~$ curl -I -
HTTP/1.1 200
Server: nginx
Date: Tues, 23 Jan 2024 17:16:18 GMT
Content-Type: text/html;charset=UTF-8
Content-Length: 8707
Connection: keep-alive


Use Case: This can be useful in troubleshooting to narrow down whether an inability to access the application via browser is networking related, or if the application is up at all in relation to pod status.
