Time policy

The time policy determines the timeframe when the users are permitted to access a particular channel. To list the available Time policies, use the following command.

curl --cookie cookies https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/policies/time_policies

The following sections detail the properties of Time policy objects.

URL
GET https:<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/policies/time_policies/<object-id>
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 the properties of a specific Time policy object.

curl --cookie cookies -https:<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/policies/time_policies/<object-id>
Response

The following is a sample response received, showing the properties of Content policy objects.

Element Type Description
name string Top level element, the name of the object. This name is also displayed on the SPS web interface. It cannot contain whitespace.
Fri list

A list of intervals for the day when the users are allowed to access the connection. Use the hh:mm format.

If the users are not allowed to access the connection for this day, use an empty list. For example:

"Sat": [],

To allow access for the whole day, use 0:00 for the starting time, and 23:59for the end. For example:

"Wed": [
  [
    "0:00",
    "23:59"
  ]

"Wed": [
  [
	"8:00",
	"18:00"
  ],
  [
	"19:00",
	"22:00"

Trusted Certificate Authorities

SPS can check the validity of certificates using the certificates and certificate-revocation lists of trusted certificate authorities (CAs) that issued the certificates.

URL
GET https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/policies/trusted_ca_lists
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 the trusted CAs.

curl --cookie cookies https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/policies/trusted_ca_lists

The following command retrieves the properties of a specific CA.

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

Element Type Description
key string Top level element, contains the ID of the CA.
body Top level element (string) Contains the properties of the CA.
authorities Top level list

Contains the certificates and the Certificate Revocation Lists (CLR) of the trusted CAs.

You can add multiple certificate and CRL pairs.

certificate string The certificate of the trusted CA.
crl string The URL of the Certificate Revocation List of the CA.
dn_check Top level item Certificates are only accepted if their content matches the configured values.
altEmailAddress string The certificate is only accepted if its alternative e-mail address matches the value of the altEmailAddress element.
c string The certificate is only accepted if its country matches the value of the c element.
cn string The certificate is only accepted if its common name matches the value of the cn element.
emailAddress string The certificate is only accepted if its e-mail address matches the value of the emailAddress element.
l string The certificate is only accepted if its locality matches the value of the l element.
o string The certificate is only accepted if its organization name matches value of the o element.
ou string The certificate is only accepted if its organization unit name matches value of the ou element.
st string The certificate is only accepted if its state or province matches value of the st element.
dns_lookup boolean Set to true to use the domain name server set on the /api/configuration/network/naming endpoint to resolve the hostnames and IP addresses for certificate validation. If you have enabled strict_hostcheck, you probably want to enable this option as well.
name string The name of the trusted CA. This name is also displayed on the SPS web interface. It cannot contain whitespace.
strict_hostcheck boolean Set to true to configure only accepting certificates where the Common Name of the certificate contains the hostname or the IP address of the host showing the certificate.

Status and error codes

The following table lists the typical status and error codes for this request. For a complete list of error codes, see Application level error codes.

Code Description Notes
201 Created The new resource was successfully created.
400 InvalidQuery The requested filter or its value is invalid.
401 Unauthenticated The requested resource cannot be retrieved because the client is not authenticated and the resource requires authorization to access it. The details section contains the path that was attempted to be accessed, but could not be retrieved.
401 AuthenticationFailure Authenticating the user with the given credentials has failed.
404 NotFound The requested object does not exist.

Local user databases

Local User Databases are available for RDP, SSH and Telnet protocols, and can be used to authenticate the clients to credentials that are locally available on SPS. Such credentials include passwords, public keys, and certificates. Local User Databases are most commonly used in inband gateway authentication scenarios.

URL
GET https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/policies/user_databases
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).

User lists

User lists are local white- or blacklists of usernames that allow fine-control over who can access a connection or a channel.

NOTE:

User lists on SPS cannot prevent a user from accessing the server from a local terminal.

You can use user lists when configuring gateway_groups or remote_groups in the allowed_for element of channel policies. For more information on configuring channel policies, see Channel policy.

To use this option, you must also configure web gateway authentication in the connection policy, or client-side gateway authentication back-end in the authentication policy.

URL
