First off I am new to igntion. I am a student and trying to get some projects set up for demo and learning purposes.
I have two qestions I would like some information or clarification on.
- I am using Active directory to access the config gateway. Everything works as expected except the security levels.
If I use Active directory as the IdP to access the gateway it WILL pull the user and roles. When tested on the config it shows the roles correctly and the “security levels” the user is granted, however, the security settings for accessing the config page refer to security levels needed to access.
Using the , seperated roles does not seem to work. Using the structure “authenticated/role/ADAssigned” does work. This is the “security level” that is assigned to the AD user.
This does not match the security level permissions in the gateways security page. In fact there are NO security levels configured outside of the default. Doing so also does not allow me to add those “roles” to ne users created in a local IdP provider.
While my understanding of the difference is starting to come together - I am struggling to understand the relationship and how to use one or both either with AD or locally. The 8.1 documentation does not explain it to a degree that I am able to visualize.
- I currently have an Ignition Server running on our network in good health(Alpha). I also have a raspberry pi running edge on the network.(Edge)
Alpha has Cirrus link mqtt engine, distributor, transmission installed and Edge has transmission installed.
Running wireshark on my laptop on the network (which has a designer installed) there is CONSTANT http/get requests going over the network between Alpha and Edge AND my PC asking for trial time remaindor.
I understand the need to update this between the running gateways and clients but how do I slow this polling rate down? It is eating a ton of bandwidth and boggin down Edge with requests and responses. (running on Pi)
