Diagnostics Service and Diagnostics Console

Diagnostics Service and Diagnostics Console
Foundation 23.1

The Diagnostics Console allows administrators to connect to the OnBase Application Server and view all the sessions for all data sources currently running in that process. The administrator can disconnect sessions as needed.

Access to this feature is protected by Windows security. The service the Diagnostics Console connects to must be configured to require integrated Windows authentication. Access to the service is denied to all users except those explicitly allowed in the service's configuration file on the server.

  1. In Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager, disable Anonymous Access on the Admin directory within the Application Server's virtual directory.
    1. Open Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager by entering inetmgr in a Run dialog box on the Application Server machine.
    2. Navigate to the Application Server's virtual directory (named AppServer by default).
    3. Click Authentication.
    4. Right-click Anonymous Authentication and select Disable.
    5. Ensure that Windows Authentication is enabled.
  2. Open the sessionAdminSecurity.config file from the Admin directory.
  3. Grant access to the users or groups who should have administrative access to the Application Server's sessions.
    • To grant access to a specific user, use the <allow users=""/> element. Between the quotation marks, enter the administrator's local or domain user name. To grant access to multiple users, separate each user name with a comma.

    • To grant access to all users within a local or domain group, use the <allow roles=""/> element. Between the quotation marks, enter the local or domain group to grant access to. To grant access to multiple groups, separate each group name with a comma.


    When listing multiple users or roles, ensure that there is no space before or after the comma between users or roles.

  4. Save the file.
