Configure System Properties#

When you download the Privacera package, system properties for each Privacera service are pre-configured and bundled in it. Privacera allows you to append additional system properties that were not pre-configured. To know which Privacera services can be configured, click here.

Configuration

To configure additional system properties, perform the following steps:

  1. Refer the table given in the link above and get the custom file name to be configured for service.

  2. Replace $ADD_FILE_NAME with the file name in the following command and run it.

    vi ~/privacera/privacera-manager/config/custom-properties/$ADD_FILE_NAME
    
  3. Add the required system properties.

  4. Run the update.

    cd ~/privacera/privacera-manager
    ./privacera-manager.sh update
    

Example

Let's illustrate the steps described above with an example. Suppose you are unable to access Privacera Portal due to a Whitelabel Error Page message. To address this problem, you need to add the following properties:

  • privacera.portal.saml.max.authentication.age.sec
  • privacera.portal.saml.response.skew.sec
  • privacera.portal.saml.force.authn

These properties are not configured in the default system properties of the Portal service and have to be added separately.

To add these properties, perform the following steps:

  1. From the table, refer to the Portal service in the Service column and gets its custom file name. In this case, it is portal-custom.properties.

  2. Add the file name in the following command and run it.

    vi ~/privacera/privacera-manager/config/custom-properties/portal-custom.properties
    
  3. Add the following properties with their values.

    privacera.portal.saml.max.authentication.age.sec=31556952 
    privacera.portal.saml.response.skew.sec=600 
    privacera.portal.saml.force.authn=true
    
  4. Run the update.

    cd ~/privacera/privacera-manager
    ./privacera-manager.sh update
