Linking to the CommCell Console from the Web Console

You can configure the Web Console to show or hide the CommCell Console GUI link on the My Applications page of the Web Console using command line scripts or additional settings.

Procedure

Using the Command Line Interface

You can add or remove the CommCell Console link for a specific user group using the command line interface.

Note: To change the URL for the CommCell Console link, see Updating the URL for the CommCell Console Link.

  1. At the command prompt on the CommServe computer, go to Installation_Directory/Base, and type the following command:

    qoperation execscript -sn updateUserGroupUserPropertiesCap -si 'ug=user_group' -si 'Cloud Capabilities' -si 'COMMCELLCONSOLE' -si 'add|remove'

    Examples:

    • Adding the Link

      qoperation execscript -sn updateUserGroupUserPropertiesCap -si 'ug=user_group' -si 'Cloud Capabilities' -si 'COMMCELLCONSOLE' -si 'add'

    • Removing the Link

      qoperation execscript -sn updateUserGroupUserPropertiesCap -si 'ug=user_group' -si 'Cloud Capabilities' -si 'COMMCELLCONSOLE' -si 'remove'

    where, user_group is the name of the user group that is updated.

  2. Sign out and then sign back in to the Web Console to see the change.

Using Additional Setting

To add the CommCell Console link for all users logged on to the Web Console , complete the following steps:

  1. Verify that you have a CommCell Console installed on the Web Console computer.
  2. To the Web Console computer, add the showGuiConsoleSSO additional setting as shown in the following table.

    Note: Users who log on on to the Web Console using Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) login can view the CommCell Console link without the additional setting configuration.

    For instructions on adding additional settings from the CommCell Console, see Add or Modify an Additional Setting.

    Property Value
    Name showGuiConsoleSSO
    Category WebConsole
    Type Boolean
    Value True
  3. Restart the Tomcat service on the computer where the Web Console is installed. For instructions on restarting the Tomcat service, see Restarting a Service.
  4. Sign out and then sign back in to the Web Console to see the change.

    Users can now view the CommCell Console link on the My Applications page of the Web Console. If Single Sign On (SSO) is enabled on the domain, when users click the link, they are automatically logged on to the CommCell Console using the same login credentials.

    Note: If the CommServe system includes SAML SSO and Active Directory SSO configuration, the SAML SSO takes precedence over the Active Directory SSO.
