Creating Web Server roles

Create a Web Server role to host a Web Client and to define the web address (URL) that users enter in their web browser to access Security Center Web Client.

What you should know

To create a Web Server role:

  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the System task, and click the Roles view.
  2. Click Add an entity (), and then click Web Server ().
  3. (Optional) Set Unlimited session time to ON so that users remain logged on to Web Client as long as they keep their browser window open.
    Set Unlimited session time to OFF so that users are automatically signed out of Web Client after 12 hours of inactivity.
  4. On the Basic information page, enter a name and description for the role.
  5. Select the Partition this role is a member of, and click Next.

    Only users that are members of the partition can view or modify those entities.

  6. Click Next > Create > Close .

    The new Web Server role is created.

  7. In the Web Server page, click the Properties tab.
  8. If you have multiple Web Server roles, verify that the default URL under Communications settings does not match the URL of other Web Server roles in your system. If it does, change the Web address or the port settings so that the URL of this Web Client is unique.
    The default URL of a Web Client is https://host:443/SecurityCenter, where host is the IP address or computer host name of the server that hosts the Web Server.
  9. Click Apply.
