Configuration

HTTP(S)

Install the perfServletApp Application

  1. Log in to your Websphere administration console.
  2. Go to Applications > Application Types > WebSphere enterprise application.
  3. Click Install.
  4. Select Remote file system and browse to {WebSphere_Home}/AppServer/installableApps/PerfServletApp.ear.
  5. Click Next.
    The Context Root for the application will be set to /wasPerfTool, but you can edit this during installation. 

Configure Security for the Application

  1. Go to Security > Global Security.
  2. Select Enable application security.
  3. Go to Applications > Application Types > Websphere Enterprise Applications.
  4. Select perfServletApp.
  5. Click Security role to user/group mapping.
  6. Click Map Users/Groups.
  7. Use the Search feature to find and select the FortiSIEM user you want to provide with access to the application, 
  8. Click Map Special Subjects.
  9. Select All Authenticated in Application's Realm.
  10. Click OK.

Start the Application

  1. Go to Applications > Application Types > WebSphere enterprise application.
  2. Select perfServletApp.
  3. Click Start.
  4. In a web browser, launch the application by going to http://<ip>:<port>/wasPerfTool/servlet/perfservlet. Default HTTP Port The default port for HTTP is 9080, HTTPS is 9443. You can change these by going to Servers > Server Types > WebSphere application servers > {serverInstance} > Configuration > Ports.

JMX

Configuring the Default JMX Port

By default, your Websphere application server uses port 8880 for JMX. You can change this by logging in to your application server console and going to Application servers > {Server Name} > Ports > SOAP_CONNECTOR_ADDRESS. The username and password for JMX are the same as the credentials logging into the console. To configure JMX communications between your Websphere application server and FortiSIEM, you must copy several files from your application server to the Websphere configuration directory for each FortiSIEM virtual appliance that will be used for discovery and performance monitoring jobs. FortiSIEM does not include these files because of licensing restrictions. 

  1. Copy these files to the directory /opt/phoenix/config/websphere/ for each Supervisor, Worker, and Collector in your FortiSIEM deployment. 
    File Type Location
    Client Jars
    • ${WebSphere_Home}/AppServer/runtimes/com.ibm.ws.admin.client.jar
    • ${WebSphere_Home}/AppServer/plugins/com.ibm.ws.security.crypto.jar
    SSL files
    • ${WebSphere_Home}/AppServer/profiles/${Profile_Name}/etc/DummyClientKeyFile.jks
    • ${WebSphere_Home}/AppServer/profiles/${Profile_Name}/etc/DummyClientTrustFile.jks
  2. Install IBM JDK 1.6 or higher in the location /opt/phoenix/config/websphere/java for each Supervisor, Worker, and Collector in your FortiSIEM deployment.

 

You can now configure FortiSIEM to communicate with your device by following the instructions in the User Guide > Section: Setting Credentials, and then initiate discovery of the device as described in the topics under Discovery Settings.

Settings for Access Credentials

Use these Access Method Definition options to let FortiSIEM access your IBM Websphere device over HTTPS and SNMP. When you set the Device Credential Mapping Definition, make sure to map both the HTTPS and SNMP credentials to the same IP address for your Websphere device. HTTPS.

Start the Application

  1. Go to Applications > Application Types > WebSphere enterprise application.
  2. Select perfServletApp.
  3. Click Start.
  4. In a web browser, launch the application by going to http://<ip>:<port>/wasPerfTool/servlet/perfservlet. Default HTTP Port The default port for HTTP is 9080, HTTPS is 9443. You can change these by going to Servers > Server Types > WebSphere application servers > {serverInstance} > Configuration > Ports.

JMX

Configuring the Default JMX Port

By default, your Websphere application server uses port 8880 for JMX. You can change this by logging in to your application server console and going to Application servers > {Server Name} > Ports > SOAP_CONNECTOR_ADDRESS. The username and password for JMX are the same as the credentials logging into the console. To configure JMX communications between your Websphere application server and FortiSIEM, you must copy several files from your application server to the Websphere configuration directory for each FortiSIEM virtual appliance that will be used for discovery and performance monitoring jobs. FortiSIEM does not include these files because of licensing restrictions. 

  1. Copy these files to the directory /opt/phoenix/config/websphere/ for each Supervisor, Worker, and Collector in your FortiSIEM deployment. 
    File Type Location
    Client Jars
    • ${WebSphere_Home}/AppServer/runtimes/com.ibm.ws.admin.client.jar
    • ${WebSphere_Home}/AppServer/plugins/com.ibm.ws.security.crypto.jar
    SSL files
    • ${WebSphere_Home}/AppServer/profiles/${Profile_Name}/etc/DummyClientKeyFile.jks
    • ${WebSphere_Home}/AppServer/profiles/${Profile_Name}/etc/DummyClientTrustFile.jks
  2. Install IBM JDK 1.6 or higher in the location /opt/phoenix/config/websphere/java for each Supervisor, Worker, and Collector in your FortiSIEM deployment.

 

You can now configure FortiSIEM to communicate with your device by following the instructions in the User Guide > Section: Setting Credentials, and then initiate discovery of the device as described in the topics under Discovery Settings.
