Hello @Jlu23 ,

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to SSH into a component because SSH is not enabled. The console is similar to running “docker exec -it CONTAINER_ID /bin/bash” command and not a Linux box. It is useful for diagnostic purposes; by running commands in the console, you can see the active processes that are running inside the container, browse its local file system, monitor resource usage, observe system logs, and more.
