What is enPortal

Edge enPortal is the industry's only secure, vendor-neutral network management integration platform. With pre-built Product Integration Modules (PIMs) for common third-party applications, enPortal is a Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) solution that quickly integrates these network management tools and offers advanced capabilities including:

  • Integration of existing web-based tools and applications
  • Advanced Security including role/domain-based access via a secure proxy
  • Single Sign-On (SSO) and Sign-Off
  • Integration with external user authentication systems
  • Branding and Customization
  • Dashboard Views
  • Multi-tenancy
  • Scalability

New Features

  • Log total session time to session.log. (EN-286)
  • Enhance times shown in log files to include full date and time. (EN-291)
  • Include Actor (role, user, domain) and session details in access log for better auditing support. (EN-302)

Resolved Issues

  • Security Fix: Fixed redirect validation. (EN-309)
  • Removed runtime configuration settings specific to Java 7 as the system now requires Java 8. (EN-314)

Known Issues

  • The Session Validation Filter, added in 2.6.1, will redirect any unauthenticated request to the login page. This was added as a security enhancement. If you see this behavior and want the page to be accessible, you must add an allowed path to the custom configuration file.
