Configuring the Enterprise Console

The Enterprise Console is the main user interface that supports administration, item configuration, and reporting.

Before you begin

The Enterprise Console settings must be configured so users can:
  • receive alerts for job, report pack or dashboard events
  • use server-dependant components such as Manual Explore and Recorded Login


  1. Log in to the Enterprise Console from your web browser.
  2. Go to the General Settings page of the Administration view, and click Edit in the Enterprise Console Settings section.
  3. Enter an SMTP server name and SMTP server port (typically 25).
  4. Enter the URL of the Enterprise Console instance, for example, https://<ServerName>/<product name>/.
    Note: Do not use localhost or as the server name in the instance URL, or Manual Explore and Recorded Login will not work.
  5. (Windows authentication): Enter the name of the LDAP server or domain and LDAP group query used to retrieve user group information.
  6. Select the amount of time to keep issue data in the database.
  7. If you manage issues in AppScan Enterprise, leave the Use settings from imported file check box unchecked so that issue attributes, such as the status and severity of existing vulnerabilities, will not be overwritten when you import a file from other AppScan products. Select the check box if you manage the status and severity of the vulnerabilities outside of AppScan Enterprise so that when the file is imported, those settings are taken from the imported file.
  8. (Optional) Enable enhanced security. This option enforces FIPS 140-2 compliance.
    Note: If this option is enabled, some functionality that is not FIPS 140-2 compliant will not work as expected or will be disabled, including the Manual Explore plugin.
  9. Click Done.
