List Domains and LDAP Servers on the Login Page

Users can log in to the management console using Active Directory or LDAP credentials. When this site setting is enabled, the user can select a domain or LDAP server. Domain and LDAP server information is based on the Active Directory and LDAP user group information.

The log in to list is only displayed on the Login page when there are either Active Directory user groups or LDAP user groups created in the management console.

By default, the setting is enabled. If you do not want to display domains or LDAP severs, disable the setting.

  1. In the BeyondInsight console, go to Configuration > System > Site Options.
  2. UnderLogin Page, click the toggle to disable Show list of domains/LDAP servers on login page.
  3. Click Update Login Page Options.

You must log out and log back in for the change to take effect.

Display Forgot Password Link

Users logging into the console using Active Directory credentials cannot use the Forgot Password feature. In this scenario, you can disable the setting so the link is no longer displayed on the Login page.

  1. In the BeyondInsight console, go to Configuration > System > Site Options.
  2. Under Login Page, click the toggle to disable Show Forgot Password link on login page.
  3. Click Update Login Page Options.

You must log out and log back in for the change to take effect.

  1. In the BeyondInsight console, go to Configuration > System > Site Options.
  2. Under Login Page, click the toggle to turn off Show social media links on login and about pages.
  3. Click Update Login Page Options.

You must log out and log back in for the change to take effect.

Change the Refresh Interval for Smart Rules

Scans can run more efficiently when Smart Rules are set to refresh at longer intervals.

  1. In the BeyondInsight console, go to Configuration > System > Site Options.
  2. Under General, set the number of minutes for Maximum Smart Rule refresh frequency for asset updates. The default is 60.
  3. Click Update General Options.

Configure a Pre-Login Banner

  1. In the BeyondInsight console, go to Configuration > System > Site Options.
  2. Under Pre-Login Banner, click the toggle to enable the Show Banner.
  3. Provide a title and message, and then click Update Pre-login Banner Options.

Configure Session Options

You can configure the following session related options on the Options page:

  • Notification time before session timeout
  • Minimum interval between session extension requests
  • User Quarantine Cache refresh interval

The default session timeout period is 20 minutes, as specified in the configuration tool. If you wish to lower the session timeout period, please contact BeyondTrust Technical Support

  1. In the BeyondInsight console, go to Configuration > System > Site Options.
  2. Under Session, set the following:
    • Notification time before session timeout: Sets the amount of time, prior to the session timing out due to inactivity, that the system will notify the user that their session will timeout shortly.
    • Minimum interval between session extension requests: Sets the number of minutes that pass between session extension requests. In general, this setting should always be set low and should always be less than the session timeout value. The only time you should change this from the default of three minutes is if there are a severely high number of simultaneous users and session refresh requests to the server causing high loads.
    • User Quarantine Cache refresh interval: Account Quarantine is a feature that can be set at the user account level that prevents a user from logging on the console or API and also terminates any active sessions immediately. It is a preventative measure taken when suspicious activity is detected. The User Quarantine Cache refresh interval sets the number of seconds that pass before the database is updated with the most recently discovered user accounts from the quarantine cache. The quarantine is only applied to the user account after the database is updated. The user can remain logged on and sessions remain active up until the refresh interval time passes, and the database is updated with a Quarantine status. The default value is 600 seconds. The maximum value is 1200 seconds.
  3. Click Update Session Options.
