WUI Session Management can be enabled in the WUI Configuration screen of the LoadMaster Web User Interface (WUI). To access this screen, go to Certificates & Security > > Admin WUI Access.
Only the bal user or users with ‘All Permissions’ can use this functionality, but only the bal user can enable or disable Session Management. Users with ‘User Administration’ permissions set can view the screen but all buttons and input fields are greyed out. All other users cannot view this portion of the screen.
When WUI Session Management is enabled, there are two levels of authentication enforced in order to access the LoadMaster WUI. The initial level is Basic Authentication where users login using the bal or user logins, which are usernames defined by the system.
Once logged in via Basic Authentication, the user then must log in using their local username and password to begin the session.
