After the server is installed, access the Administrative Console, https://<host>/console/login, to verify the configuration and manage the server. The root user DN or the common name of a root user DN is required to log into the Administrative Console. For example, if the DN created when the server was installed is cn=Directory Manager, directory managercan be used to log into the Administrative Console.

If the Administrative Console needs to run in an external container, such as Tomcat, a separate package can be installed according to that container's documentation. Contact Ping Identity Customer Support for the package location and instructions.

Note: The session timeout for the console is 24 hours by default. When this duration is exceeded, all inactive users are logged off automatically.
To set a different timeout value, configure the server.sessionTimeout application parameter, which specifies the timeout duration in seconds. You can set the value as an init parameter either in the console or on the command line, as shown below.
  • Console

    Select Web Application Extensions > Console and then use the Init Parameter field.

  • Command line

    The following example uses a value of 1800 seconds (30 minutes).

    dsconfig set-web-application-extension-prop --no-prompt \ 
    --extension-name Console \ 
    --add init-parameter:server.sessionTimeout=1800

For the change to take effect, restart the HTTP(S) Connection Handler or the server itself.
