  1. Web UI

Obtaining a configuration log. Only one user can have read write access to Gaia configuration settings at a time. All other users can only log in with read only access to view configuration settings as specified by the assigned rules. For example, Administrator A logs in and no other user has read write access. Administrator A receives an exclusive configuration lock with read write access if Administrator A logs in and Administrator B already has the configuration lock, admin A has the option to override Admin B’s lock. If Admin A decides to override the lock, admin B stays locked on but will have read only access. If Admin A does not override the lock, they will be granted read only access. There are two commands used to obtain the configuration lock from another administrator lock database override and unlock database. Note the administrator whose Read Write access is revoked does not receive notifications.

  1. System Overview Page

Web UI the Web UI is an advanced Web based interface used to configure Gaia platforms. It provides clientless access to the gaia CLI directly from a browser. A majority of system configuration tasks can be done through the Web UI. To access the Web UI, navigate to Https Device IP address login with a username and password. The following browsers support the Web UI, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chromebook and Safari. The Web UI operates in the following two modes simplified shows only basic configuration options.

  1. Configuration Lock

Monitoring tab. The monitoring tab allows a user to view status and detailed operational statistics in real time. For some routing and high availability setting groups. This ability is useful for monitoring dynamic routing and VRRP cluster performance.

  1. Roles and Role Based Administration

The Web UI and CLI can be used to manage user accounts and perform the following actions Add users to your gaia system. Edit the home directory of the user edit the default shell for a user assign a password to a user. Assign privileges to users There are two default users that cannot be deleted. The administrator has full retail write access for all gaia features. This user has a user ID of zero and therefore has all of the privileges of a root user. The monitor has read only access for all features in the Web UI and the CLI and can change their own password.

An administrator must provide a password for the monitor before the monitor user account can be used. New users have read only privileges to the Web UI and CLI. By default, they must be assigned one or more roles before they can log in. Note permissions can be assigned to all gaia features or a subset of features without assigning a user ID of zero. If a user ID of zero is assigned to a user account, the user is equivalent to the administrative user, and the roles assigned to that user cannot be modified.

When a user is created, predefined roles or privileges are assigned to the user.

For example, a user with read ride access to user feature can change the password of another user or an administrative user. It is also possible to specify which access mechanisms the Web UI or CLI are available to the user. When users log into the Web UI, they see only those features for which they have read-only or read write access. If they have read only access to a feature, they can see the settings pages but cannot change the settings.
