Opened: Jun 07, 2017

Severity: 3-Major


The BIG-IP does not have a mechanism in the GUI to display information about login attempts.


Administrators cannot use the GUI to evaluate login attempts to the BIG-IP.




Administrators can view the logs at /var/log/secure.

Fix Information

New GUI pages were create to allow administrators, resource admins, and auditors to view information about login attempts to the BIG-IP. These pages are available at System >> Logins in the GUI. The user logins summary, available at System >> Logins : Summary can be set as the default start screen for BIG-IP users. However, this process is not as straightforward as other pages, as these pages are available only to users with a role of admin, resource admin, or auditor. Because of these restrictions, setting this page as default is accomplished by setting a DB variable, UI.Users.RedirectSuperUsersToAuthSummary, to true. When this DB variable is set to true, users with roles of admin, resource admin, or auditor will be redirected to the System >> Logins : Summary page. Users with other roles will be redirected to the Start Screen that is set in System >> Preferences.
