Refreshing Security for Users Logged On to the Web Console

You can configure the Web Console to refresh the security of users who are logged on. Without this configuration, users must log off and then log on again for security changes to take effect.

Example: A user is removed as the client owner of a laptop. After the security refresh, the user will not see the client in the Web Console.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, right-click CommServe and then click Properties.
  2. In the CommCell Properties dialog box, click the Additional Settings tab and then click Add.
  3. In the Add Additional Settings dialog box, enter the details for the following additional settings:
    Additional Setting Category Type Value
    nAutoCredsRefreshCount CommServe INTEGER Enter the number of users to refresh as part of the security refresh.
    nAutoCredsRefreshTime CommServe INTEGER Enter the number of hours between security refreshes.
    nStaleCredsCheckHeartBeat CommServe INTEGER Enter the number of seconds between checks to Active Directory (AD) providers for users whose permissions need to be refreshed.

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