How to configure WatchGuard WebCenter

WatchGuard WebCenter is a dynamic, interactive, real-time web UI application, with a single click you can quickly move from page to page, see more refined data in your log messages and reports, and manage your certificates.

Note: When the WatchGuard log server, the management, or the report server is installed, Watchguard WebCenter is automatically installed. WatchGuard WebCenter tool is a web-based user interface that includes these tools for viewing logs and reports.

  • Log Manager
  • Report Manager
  • CA Manager

And this enables log messages to appear at the local time of the client’s PC.

Note: If you decide to implement WatchGuard log server alone, the associated log manager appears in the WebCenter and reports cannot be generated as the report manager menu would not be available.

You can optionally configure WebCenter to enable users to view log messages. These messages are converted to reports
that can easily be reviewed for security needs.

Note: These reports are “Available reports” which are (configured to run at a specific time) and “On-demand Reports” which can be generated at any point in time.

  • And these settings are all configured in the WatchGuard firebox or XTM environment.
  • And to enable users to view these reports they must first be added to the WatchGuard server centre users page and the reports that are being made available (appears on the Web-UI) are the ones you want to make available.

For further permissions in restricting which users are allowed to see certain menus, use the WebCenter role-based administration.

Lastly, ensure that you enable JavaScript for Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari.
