DS Web services without the admin console. Is it possible ?

Hi

The client is concerned that they cannot enforce their password policy or integrate it with their Windows AD authentication for the admin console application. In our implementation we are using DS batch jobs with webservices enabled. Is there any way to have the webservices running smoothly without anyone installing/accessing the admin console.

We are using Tomcat. Can we use any options at tomcat level - 'Remote Address Filter' etc ?

If anybody has tried this, I would appreciate it if u can share the details

thanks

Dinesh

p.s. I have explained to the client about the functionality of the Admin console and what type of activities u can do within it. They still would like to explore options of controlling access to admin console since the jobs that are executed have sensitive data.

    WebService is a servlet within the tomcat, the servlet is interweaved with the Management Console. So the answer is no.

    But you can use all tomcat configurations to overcome security concerns, e.g. allow a specific IP address to access it only etc.

    Hi Werner

    Thanks for your reply. Has anyone tried IP restriction at the Tomcat level, any user experience that can be shared, will it affect the webservices WSDL when external applications make a call.

    Are there any plans to integrate windows AD or any authentication for the admin console
