Configure the application-authenticity security check

Configure the predefined MobileFirst application-authenticity security check to match your specific requirements.


Overview

The predefined application-authenticity security check (appAuthenticity) has a single configurable property: expirationSec. This property sets the expiration period for a successful security-check state. The expiration period determines the minimal interval for invoking the check again after a successful execution.

We can configure the value of the expirationSec application-authenticity security-check property, as outlined in the following procedure.

Note: The procedure explains how to use IBM MobileFirstâ„¢ Platform Operations Console to configure the property value. Alternatively, we can also set the property value directly in the application-descriptor file. For detailed information, see Configuring application security-check properties.


Procedure

  1. In MobileFirst Operations Console, select your application version from the Applications section of the navigation sidebar, and then select the application Security tab.
  2. In the Security-Check Configurations section, select Create New.
  3. In the Configure Security-Check Properties window, configure the application-authenticity security check:
    1. In the Security Check field, select appAuthenticity from the list.
    2. In the Expiration Period, Successful State (seconds) field, set your preferred expiration period for a successful state of the security check, in seconds.
    When the configuration is done, we can see and edit your appAuthenticity security-check configuration in the Security-Check Configurations table of the application Security tab. See Configuring application security-check properties.
