Configure Web Browser Session Settings Using the SSO Configuration Tool

You can configure the settings that control the directives that
NetOps Portal
uses when it communicates with web browsers using the Single Sign-On Configuration tool (SSOConfig) or using
NetOps Portal
. This article details how to configure the settings using SSOConfig.
For more information about how to configure these settings using
NetOps Portal
, see Configure the Authentication Mechanisms.
Follow these steps:
  1. Open a terminal session on
    NetOps Portal
    host (as root or with the
    sudo
    command).
  2. Launch the Single Sign-On Configuration tool by running the
    ./SsoConfig
    command in the following directory:
    <installation_directory>
    /PerformanceCenter
    /opt/CA
    is the default installation directory.
    You are prompted to select an option. The available options correspond to CA applications running on the local server.
    Use the following commands as needed while you are selecting settings:
    • q
      (quit)
    • b
      (go back to the previous menu)
    • u
      (update)
    • r
      (reset)
  3. Enter
    1
    to configure
    NetOps Portal
    (CAPC) security settings.
    You are prompted to select a configuration option.
  4. Enter
    3
    to configure
    NetOps Portal
    (DX NetOps) security settings.
    You are prompted to specify the priority.
    The
    Priority
    parameter only applies to
    NetOps Portal
    .
  5. Enter
    one
    of the following options:
    • 1. Remote Value
      Propagates these settings to the data sources that are registered to this instance of
      NetOps Portal
      , including the Event Manager service, which embeds the
      NetOps Portal
      URL.
      NetOps Portal
      uses these settings only if a corresponding
      Local Override
      value is not present.
      To configure the scheme or port to include the correct
      NetOps Portal
      URL in threshold event email messages, use
      Remote Value
      .
    • 2. Local Override
      Overrides a setting only on this
      NetOps Portal
      instance. This setting takes precedence over the
      Remote Value
      setting and the default settings.
    You are prompted to select a property to configure.
  6. Enter
    one or more
    of the following properties:
    When prompted, enter
    u
    to update the value and supply a new value.
    • 21. Use base tags control relative URLs (Local Override)
      Determines whether to add base tags to
      NetOps Portal
      web pages that are rendered to the browser. This forces any relative URLs in the page (URLs that do not start with the host name) to always resolve to the same host. This setting affects security only in older web browsers (particularly Internet Explorer) which might be vulnerable to security attacks that take advantage of a now-obsolete method for resolving the absolute paths of CSS includes. Enabling this setting does not have a discernible effect on your system except when using some reverse proxies. In that case, you can disable this setting.
      Default:
      Enabled
    • 22. Users may have multiple concurrent sessions (Local Override)
      Determines whether a user can have multiple concurrent sessions open from web browsers at the same time.
      Options:
      • Enabled:
        When users establish a new browser session, other open browser sessions remain open (their login remains active).
      • Disabled:
        When users establish a new browser session, they are logged out of any other sessions they have open (and must log in again in that session).
      Default:
      Disabled
  7. Enter
    b
    and
    b
    again to go back to the first set of options.
  8. Enter
    q
    .
