Beginning with v8.0.0, the console relies on the App Control API. An incorrectly configured IIS server can prevent console access.

  • To confirm API functionality: go to System Configuration > Advanced Options in your current console and check the “API Access Enabled” box. If a green dot appears next to the checkbox, then you can assume that IIS is configured correctly. Otherwise, make sure you meet the following restrictions:
  • Site Bindings:

    The App Control API will not connect to localhost if the console web application is bound to a specific IP address instead of ‘*’. Make sure that ‘*’ is added to the list of bindings.

  • IP Address and Domain Restrictions:

    If you must limit console access to specific IP addresses, be sure that the IPv6 localhost address is added to the list.

  • Application Pools:

    App Control must be run within the DefaultAppPool application pool. Using a different app pool results in the App Control server not having the appropriate credentials to access the SQL Server database.

  • Authentication:

    You must disable Basic Authentication and Windows Authentication so that the App Control Server handles authentication. Otherwise, users will not be able to log into the App Control Server.
