HTTP settings policies

HTTP settings policies define protocol-level settings for idle and session timeout. You can create multiple policies, and choose the appropriate one for each HTTP connection.

URL
GET https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/http/settings_policies
Cookies
Cookie name Description Required Values
session_id Contains the authentication token of the user Required

The value of the session ID cookie received from the REST server in the authentication response, for example, a1f71d030e657634730b9e887cb59a5e56162860. For details on authentication, see Authenticate to the SPS REST API.

Note that this session ID refers to the connection between the REST client and the SPS REST API. It is not related to the sessions that SPS records (and which also have a session ID, but in a different format).

Sample request

The following command lists HTTP settings policies.

curl --cookie cookies https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/http/settings_policies

The following command retrieves the properties of a specific policy.

curl --cookie cookies https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/http/settings_policies/<policy-id>

  }
}
Element Type Description
key string Top level element, contains the ID of the policy.
body Top level element (string) The elements of the HTTP settings policy.
client_tls_security_settings JSON object Configures TLS security settings on the client side.
name string Name of the HTTP settings policy. Cannot contain whitespace.
server_tls_security_settings JSON object Configures TLS security settings on the server side.
session_timeout int Session timeout, in seconds.
timeout int Idle timeout, in seconds. Note that the SPS web UI displays the same value in seconds.
webapp_session_cookies​ list (string)

To distinguish the audited HTTP requests and responses based on the session cookies of web applications, enter the name of the session cookie, for example, PHPSESSID, JSESSIONID, or ASP.NET_SessionId. Note that the names of session cookies are case sensitive.

Note that this is a priority list. If there are multiple cookie names, SPS will use the first one from this list it finds in the request headers to assign the requests to a session.

Elements of client_tls_security_settings and server_tls_security_settings Type Description
cipher_strength JSON object Specifies the cipher string OpenSSL will use.
custom_cipher string

The list of ciphers you want to permit SPS to use in the connection. For more details on customizing this list, check the 'openssl-ciphers' manual page on your SPS appliance.

selection string

Specifies the cipher string OpenSSL will use. The following settings options are possible:

  • recommended: this setting only uses ciphers with adequate security level.

  • custom: this setting allows you to specify the list of ciphers you want to permit SPS to use in the connection. This setting is only recommended to ensure compatibility with older systems. For more details on customizing this list, check the 'openssl-ciphers' manual page on your SPS appliance.

    For example: ALL:!aNULL:@STRENGTH

minimum_tls_version string

Specifies the minimal TLS version SPS will offer during negotiation. The following settings options are possible:

  • TLSv1_2: this setting will only offer TLS version 1.2 during negotiation. This is the recommended setting.

  • TLSv1_1: this setting will offer TLS version 1.1 and later versions during negotiation.

  • TLSv1_0: this setting will offer TLS version 1.0 and later versions during negotiation.

Add HTTP settings policies

To add a settings policy, you have to:

  1. Open a transaction.

    For details, see Open a transaction.

  2. Create the JSON object for the new policy.

    POST the JSON object to the https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/http/settings_policies/ endpoint. You can find a detailed description of the available parameters listed in Element .

    If the POST request is successful, the response includes the key of the new policy. For example:

    {
      "key": "3848c708-2e1d-4463-b232-0c8c5875ff55",
      "meta": {
        "href": "/api/configuration/http/settings_policies/3848c708-2e1d-4463-b232-0c8c5875ff55",
        "parent": "/api/configuration/http/settings_policies",
        "transaction": "/api/transaction"
      }
    }
  3. Commit your changes.

    For details, see Commit a transaction.

Modify HTTP settings policies

To modify a settings policy, you have to:

  1. Open a transaction.

    For details, see Open a transaction.

  2. Modify the JSON object of the policy.

    PUT the modified JSON object to the https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/http/settings_policies/<key-of-the-object> endpoint. You can find a detailed description of the available parameters listed in Element .

  3. Commit your changes.

    For details, see Commit a transaction.

ICA connection policies

Connection policies determine if a server can be accessed from a particular client. Connection policies reference other resources (policies, usergroups, keys) that must be configured and available before creating a connection policy.

Caution:

The connection policies of this protocol are available in READ-ONLY mode on the REST API. Also, the returned data is incomplete, it does not include any protocol-specific settings, only the parameters that are common to every supported protocol.

To modify the connection policies of this protocol, you must use the SPS web interface.

Using the REST API, you can modify the connection policies of the RDP and SSH protocols.
