Integrate Aternity with SteelCentral Suite and Other Systems (Integration Settings)

You can integrate Aternity with other products in the SteelCentral Suite, and to several third party enterprise systems to enable or enhance some features.

SteelCentral Portal™ (learn more)

The SteelCentral Portal™ offers an end-to-end digital experience by enabling you to view data from several Riverbed products side by side in a single dashboard. Add the Aternity Data Source to the Portal to view Aternity's data from the past seven days alongside that of other products.

Connect the Portal to an Aternity data source in the cloud

See Connect SteelCentral Portal to the Aternity Data Source.

SteelCentral AppInternals™ (learn more)

Troubleshoot a long server time (part of a slow response time) of a user's activity, by drilling down from the activity into SteelCentral AppInternals™. In AppInternals you can trace an activity's call (AppInternals transaction) to the server as it crosses the server-side components, and follow it across the back-end components. If the activity makes two calls to the same server, or to two different servers, you can drill down from this activity to trace two separate transactions.

See Troubleshoot Server Times by Integrating with SteelCentral AppInternals.

SteelCentral NetProfiler™ (learn more)

When viewing a monitored device in Aternity, you can link directly to the same device SteelCentral NetProfiler™ to view its network connections, traffic volume, ports and so on, to help troubleshoot slow network performance. From a single device in NetProfiler, you can monitor its broader subnet to see if there is a flood of traffic in this area of the network, or perhaps other subnets are clogging access to a shared network component, which may be causing poor network performance.

One subnet which shares a server with others can clog access to that server

See Troubleshoot a Device's Network Connections by Linking to SteelCentral NetProfiler.

SSO (learn more)

Single Sign-On (SSO) allows you to bypass Aternity's sign in screen, by authenticating just once with your enterprise's chosen identity provider (IdP). Every time you access Aternity, it automatically reroutes you to the IdP, and then after authentication, it automatically routes you back to your Aternity home page as a signed in user. As such, the IdP manages the entire authentication process, which can include two-factor authentication, biometrics, or a simple password, hence Aternity does not store any passwords in the system.

Access your Aternity homepage using SSO

See Integrate Single Sign-On (SSO) Access to Aternity.

Email server (learn more)

Configure the connection of your Aternity on-premise to your enterprise email server, as the route to send automatic email notifications.

Aternity sends emails via its configured email server

See Connect Email Server to Aternity.

Your Active Directory (LDAP) service (learn more)

You can connect Aternity to your Microsoft Active Directory (AD), so that usernames defined in the AD can also be usernames to sign in to Aternity. Their usernames and passwords are managed in the AD only.

Connect the enterprise LDAP directory to use network usernames and passwords

See Connect Aternity to your Active Directory (LDAP).

SNMP Trap Manager Ticketing System (learn more)

You can integrate Aternity with your ticketing system (SNMP trap manager) to route all incident alerts or Aternity system errors (like database connectivity issues), to display them centrally on your SNMP management system, alongside alerts from other applications.

See Configure Aternity with a Ticketing System (SNMP Trap Manager).
