Endpoint Context Servers

Hi all,

 

sorry if this is a dumb question but I couldn't find anything meaningful.

 

Does any one have info regarding the use/function of the generic http endpoint context servers on CPPM?

 

cheers

Re: Endpoint Context Servers

From the online help:

 

"

Endpoint Context Servers

Policy Manager provides the ability to collect endpoint profile information from different types of Aruba IAPs and RAPs via Aruba activate. Policy Manager supports Aruba Activate, Palo Alto Networks' Firewall and Panorama, and MDM (Mobile Device Management) from Aurwatch, JAMF, Maas360, MobileIron, and SOTI.

The mobile device management platforms run on MDM servers. These servers provision mobile devices to configure connectivity settings, enforce security policies, restore lost data, and other administrative services. Information gathered from mobile devices can include policy breaches, data consumption, and existing configuration settings.

Endpoint context servers are listed and managed at Administration > External Servers > Endpoint Context Servers."

Re: Endpoint Context Servers

I read that too, but what I am trying to find out is what can the generic http context specifically be used for.

 

i.e does it work like the Palo Alto context where it can be used to forward user info to a firewall or is it for use with a generic mdm platform?

Re: Endpoint Context Servers

Its a foundation of some coming features that was put in some earlier releases. :)

 

I will try to do a post sometime in the next few days to cover it.

Thank You,
