Onboarding for On-Premises Customers

(a) ON-Premise WAF installation

Step 1 : Prophaze waf will be installed in the allocated VMS.

Step 2: Go to "Settings" page. Now, we need to connect the WAF. For that, click on the “On Premise WAF” tab on the left side of the page

To set up on premise we need cluster endpoint and service account token.

Port 6443 which is the Management port used for the dashboard to communicate with the Management node for the ip: Prophaze ip should be allowed

Step 3: A token is created for the dashboard to communicate with the cluster, copy and paste the SA token in the dashboard using the execution of the following command: kubectl get secret $(kubectl get sa prophaze-service-account -n kube-system -o jsonpath={.secrets[0].name}) -n kube-system -o jsonpath={.data.token} | base64 --decode

(Note down the output of this command to configure the cluster in Prophaze dashboard.)

Step 4: .The ON-Premise WAF is set up , all good to go. While onboarding a domain, select the newly added WAF instance for installation.

Note: On Premise WAF is available only for enterprise customers. Please contact Prophaze customer support to upgrade the plan.

Also, you can find the logs and its corresponding graphical representation in the dashboard home page.
