Web Console Configuration

The ESF Web Console exposes a set of configuration parameters that can be used to increase the overall UI security.
The ESF Web Console configuration can be accessed in the Security section.

Web Server Entry Point

This parameter allows to configure the relative path that the user will be redirected to when accessing http(s)://gateway-ip/. Note: this parameter does not change the ESF Web UI relative path, that is always /admin/console.
The default value set is /admin/console

Session max inactivity interval

The session max inactivity interval in minutes. If no interaction with the Web UI is performed for the value of this parameter in minutes, a new login will be requested.
The default value set is 15 minutes

Access Banner Enabled

For security reasons, it may be needed to display to the user a banner that describes the intended system use before authenticating.

Once enabled and configured, the ESF Web UI will display a banner before every access attempt, as depicted in the image below.
