How to enable/disable view device credentials option on Airwave

Aruba Employee
Requirement:

 

On Airwave under Manage page for a device we have an hyperlink to "view device credentials" which allow us to view the SNMP/Telnet credentials provided for a device. Sometimes due to security challenges we would have to disable the link so that it cant be viewed by other users who logs into Airwave.

 

 

 



Solution:

 

We have a field in Seas_config table in db which have a column called hide_secrets which would allow us to set a value for enabling or disabling this hyper link.



Configuration:

 

To disable the hyperlink you can execute the below command from Airwave CLI,

 

# dbc "update seas_config set hide_secrets = 1;"

 

To enable the hyperlink we can execute the below command,

 

# dbc "update seas_config set hide_secrets = 0;"

 

 



Verification

 

To verify we can login to Airwave GUI and check whether the link. When its disabled we wont find the link anymore as in the screen shot below,
