  activemq, hawtio, java, jolokia, windows

I’ve installed Apache ActiveMQ 5.16.3 on my windows 10 laptop for testing purposes
And i downloaded hawtio 2.13.3 as a webapp for monitoring.

Steps i did to install and configure :

  1. Downloaded ActiveMQ and extracted it to a folder
  2. Downloaded Hawtio and extracted it at ActiveMQ webapps folder
  3. Added Hawtio as a resource under jetty.xml file
  4. Added -dhawtio configurations under activemq file at bin folder
  5. Ran ActiveMQ service installer "InstallService.bat"
  6. Ran ActiveMQ Service and navigated to
  7. ActiveMQ works , i now navigate to
  8. I attempted logging in using the default user and password (admin,admin)
  9. I received an error stating my credentials are invalid

After attempting to login to hawtio web i notice this error in my activemq batch file

INFO  | qtp1675905101-41 | Hawtio login is using 1800 sec. HttpSession timeout
WARN  | qtp1675905101-41 | Login failed due to: No LoginModules configured for karaf

Did i miss something on the way?

  • HI, I am facing the same issue as you. I am using Apache ActiveMQ 5.15.12 and Hawtio-default 2.13.6.war . I am getting the same error in the cmd prompt with “invalid credentails” error in the Hawtio UI.

    Can you please let me know how you resovled this issue?
