Introduction

The Reporting page is for administrators to review and log authentication events.

Administrators can look up specific user's access, failed authentications, and successful authentications during any desired time period.

A Reporting realm would be created to require Multi-Factor Authentication to access the Reporting page outside of the appliance (Reporting page is also accessible in the Logs tab).

Prerequisites

1. Create a New Realm for the Reporting page

2. Configure the following tabs in the Web Admin before configuring the Post Authentication tab:

  • Overview – the description of the realm and SMTP connections must be defined
  • Data – an enterprise directory must be integrated with SecureAuth IdP
  • Workflow – the way in which users will access this application must be defined
  • Multi-Factor Methods – the Multi-Factor Authentication methods that will be used to access this page (if any) must be defined
SecureAuth IdP Configuration Steps
Data

 

1. Restrict the realm to only admins in the Membership Connection Settings section by selecting Allow Access from the User Group Check Type dropdown, provide the User Groups name(s) (e.g. "admins"), and the Groups Field in the enterprise directory that contains group information of each user

Click Save once the configurations have been completed and before leaving the Data page to avoid losing changes

Post Authentication

 

2. Select Reporting from the Authenticated User Redirect dropdown in the Post Authentication tab in the Web Admin

3. An unalterable URL is auto-populated in the Redirect To field, which appends to the domain name and realm number in the address bar (Authorized/Reporting.aspx)

4. A customized post authentication page can be uploaded, but it is not required

Forms Auth / SSO Token

 

5. Click View and Configure FormsAuth keys / SSO token to configure the token/cookie settings and to configure this realm for Single Sign-on (SSO)

These are optional configurations

 To configure this realm's token/cookie settings, follow these steps:
Forms Authentication

 

1. If SSL is required to view the token, select True from the Require SSL dropdown

2. Choose whether SecureAuth IdP will deliver the token in a cookie to the user's browser or device:

  • UseCookies enables SecureAuth IdP to always deliver a cookie
  • UseUri disables SecureAuth IdP to deliver a cookie, and instead deliver the token in a query string
  • AutoDetect enables SecureAuth IdP to deliver a cookie if the user's settings allow it
  • UseDeviceProfile enables SecureAuth IdP to deliver a cookie if the browser's settings allow it, no matter the user's settings

3. Set the Sliding Expiration to True if the cookie remains valid as long as the user is interacting with the page

4. Set the Timeout length to determine for how many minutes a cookie is valid

No configuration is required for the Name, Login URL, or Domain fields

Machine Key

 

5. No changes are required in the Validation field, unless the default value does not match the company's requirement

If a different value is required, select it from the dropdown

6. No changes are required in the Decryption field, unless the default value does not match the company's requirement

If a different value is required, select it from the dropdown

No configuration is required for the Validation Key or Decryption Key fields

Authentication Cookies

 

7. Enable the cookie to be Persistent by selecting True - Expires after Timeout from the dropdown

Selecting False - Session Cookie enables the cookie to be valid as long as the session is open, and will expire once the browser is closed or the session expires

No configuration is required for the Pre-Auth Cookie, Post-Auth Cookie, or the Clean Up Pre-Auth Cookie fields

Click Save once the configurations have been completed and before leaving the Forms Auth / SSO Token page to avoid losing changes

To configure this realm for SSO, refer to SecureAuth IdP Single Sign-on Configuration

To configure this realm for Windows Desktop SSO, refer to Windows desktop SSO configuration

Logs

The following configuration steps are required in the Reporting page realm and all realms from which Reports pulls information

 

6. In the Log Options section, check Database from the Audit Logs options

Log Database

 

7. Configure the Log Database section with a SQL-type database integration

Click Save once the configurations have been completed and before leaving the Logs page to avoid losing changes
