Monitoring, Management & Location Tracking

How do I hide device credentials in the GUI?

If the user does not need access to the AP -> Manage page at all, you could simply limit their role to a Monitoring or Audit user to prevent them from having access to the plain-text credentials. The option for hiding the credentials for all users can be enabled via a database command:

1. Log in to the AMP console as root directly or via SSH
2. Type db to access the database

[root@kelvin ~]# db
Welcome to psql 8.1.3, the PostgreSQL interactive terminal.

Type: \copyright for distribution terms
\h for help with SQL commands
\? for help with psql commands
\g or terminate with semicolon to execute query
\q to quit

airwave=>

3. Update the hide_secrets field

airwave=> update seas_config set hide_secrets=1;
UPDATE 1
airwave=>

4. Type \q to quit the database.

airwave=> \q
[root@kelvin ~]#


Once that field is toggled, the AMP will no longer display the AP credentials in the web interface.
