Creating profiles allows the administrator to define specific settings for the general working environment of the system. Settings in a Profile can affect the timeouts of a user session, change the default view for resources (icons or lists) or also affect agent timeouts and proxy settings. If multiple profiles are configures users can select different profiles when logging in, or the administrators can manage default environment settings for users preselecting a matching profile. A default profile always exists and cannot be deleted.
Step 1. Create a profile
- Log into the SSL VPN web interface.
- Go to the RESOURCES > Profiles page.
Verify that you have selected the correct user database on the top right of the page.
In the Create Profile section, select the database, for which you want to apply the profile from the User Database list.
- Enter a unique name for the profile in the Name field.
- From the Policies list, select the policies to associate with this profile and click Add >> to add them to the Selected area on the right.
- Click Add to create the policy.
Step 2. (Optional) Configure additional profile settings
The Edit Profile window lets you configure additional details if required, such as timeouts and local proxy settings.
- To edit the profile settings, click the Edit link next to the profile in the Profiles list.
- Modify the settings as required. The session parameters affect how the active session behaves and includes for example cache behavior and inactivity timeout.
- Click Save Changes.
Users who are granted the appropriate permissions can create and manage their own profiles. For example, a user might configure a home profile which is configured for use when working from home and another called On-site which could be used for when the user is on a customer site.
