Disable a Web interface on specific web servers

By default, all Web interfaces are available on all web servers where Adaxes Web interface is installed. However, you may want to restrict access to a Web interface and disable it on specific web servers. For example, you may not want the Web interface for administrators to be available on the web servers running in the DMZ.

To specify which Web interfaces are available on a particular web server, you need to allow or deny the web server in the configuration settings of each Web interface.

To restrict access to a Web interface on specific web servers, do the following:

  1. Open Adaxes Web interface configurator.

    • On the computer where Web interface configurator is installed, open Windows Start menu.

    • Click Adaxes Web Interface Configurator.

    To configure the Web interface, you need to have the appropriate permissions.


    The permissions to configure the Web interface are delegated via security roles. By default, only service administrators have the appropriate permissions. To enable other users to configure the Web interface, grant them the corresponding permissions.

    To create a security role that grants the permissions to configure Web interface:

    • In Adaxes Administration console, right-click your Adaxes service, point to New and click Security Role.

    • Enter a name for the new security role and click Next.

    • On the Permissions step, click the down arrow embedded into the Add button and click Configure Web Interface.

    • Click Next and follow the steps in the wizard.

  2. In the top left corner, select the Web interface you want to customize.

  3. In the left navigation menu, click Access control.

  4. In the Web servers section, configure the list of web servers you want to allow or deny the Web interface on.

  5. Save the changes.

    The settings in a section can be applied to other Web interfaces. For this purpose, in the top right corner of the section, click the down arrow button and choose Apply to other Web interfaces.
