Management Documentation


Overview

Authorised engineers are able to manage all aspects of their installation on the UH Enterprise web interface from either a mobile or desktop computer. During installation of one’s UH Enterprise infrastructure, relevant entities will be given account credentials and a tutorial for managing their deployment.

This documentation page serves as a reference manual for common operations engineers may wish to perform on their UH Enterprise infrastructure.


Organisations

Definition

UH Enterprise organisations represent a collective group of personnel with access to a set of VPN servers. Every member registered in an organisation has access to all VPN servers defined within an organisation. Therefore, organisations should be constructed to reflect the relevant access permissions of users within a corporation.

Admin Management

Every UH Enterprise organisation contains a list of administrators that are authorised to alter every part of an organisation including membership of other administrators. An admin can view the list of administrators at any point by clicking admins next to any organisation one has access to.

Creating an admin

New admins can be enrolled by any organisation administrator by clicking the Associate New Admin button. Then one must enter the user ID of the new admin to associate them to the organisation in question. User ID’s can be obtained from the profile page in UH Enterprise.

Deleting an admin

Existing admins can be deleted at any time by clicking the admins next to an admin one wishes to remove. All access to the organisation for that admin will immediately be revoked.

Organisation Management

Every UH Enterprise organisation has a set of associated properties which include:

These properties are editable at any time by clicking edit next to any organisation one has access to. Changes to these options will then be dynamically pushed to UH Enterprise applications.

Creating an organisation

An organisation can only be instantiated if one has been given the UH Enterprise global admin scope by Ultra Horizon. If this has been given, a user can create an organisation at any point by clicking the Create New Organisation button on the remote access page.

Deleting an organisation

Existing organisations can be deleted at any time by clicking the admins next to an organisation one wishes to remove. The entire organisation will be removed including all servers, identities and profiles. This is a non-recoverable action.


Servers

Definition

Servers within UH Enterprise are remote access VPN servers that are specific to a UH Enterprise organisation. All identities and profiles within an organisation have access to these servers and can connect to them at any time.

Server Management

Every UH Enterprise server has a set of associated properties which include:

These properties are editable at any time by clicking edit next to any server one has access to. Changes to these options will then be dynamically pushed to UH Enterprise applications.

Creating a server

A server can be instantiated at any point by clicking the Create New Server button within any organisation one has access to. This will then prompt the admin to enter the details referenced in Server Management above.

Deleting a server

Existing servers can be deleted at any time by clicking the admins next to a server one wishes to remove. The server will be removed from all UH Enterprise profiles and the ability to select the server as a connection option in UH Enterprise applications will be removed.


Identities

Definition

UH Enterprise identities represent authorised personnel within an organisation. These identities can be thought of as any entity who is authorised to connect to the organisation’s servers.

Identity Management

Every UH Enterprise identity has a set of associated properties which include:

These properties are editable at any time by clicking edit next to any server one has access to. Changes to these options will then be dynamically pushed to UH Enterprise applications.

Creating an identity

An identity can be instantiated at any point by clicking the Create New Identity button within any organisation one has access to. This will then prompt the admin to enter the details referenced in Identity Management above.

Deleting an identity

Existing identities can be deleted at any time by clicking the admins next to an identity one wishes to remove. The identity will be removed and all profiles within the identity will be deleted, revoking all access to the organisation’s servers for the affected profiles.


Profiles

Definition

UH Enterprise profiles represent devices belonging to identities defined within an organisation. As such, profiles are immutable objects which grant access to an organisation’s server and the deletion of a profile immediately revokes access to all organisation servers for that device.

Profile Management

Every UH Enterprise profile has a set of associated properties which include:

Profiles are immutable one-time objects. They cannot be altered once created. If alternations must be made, the profile must be deleted and a replacement created instead.

Creating a profile

A profile can be instantiated at any point by clicking the Create New Profile button under any identity within an organisation one has access to. This will then prompt the admin to enter the details referenced in Profile Management above.

Deleting a profile

Existing profiles can be deleted at any time by clicking the admins next to a profile one wishes to remove. The profile will be removed and access to all organisation servers for that device will immediately be revoked.

Exporting a profile

In the case that one wishes to export a profile for a more exotic operating system where UH Enterprise applications have not yet been ported, UH Enterprise offers a static export facility compatible with regular OpenVPN clients. By clicking the export icon a prompt will appear enabling an admin to build a static profile for download. The admin can choose a server and whether to auto-add credentials into the profile. If the Download button is pressed a zip file is generated containing the newly generated static profile. Within this zip file is README.txt which explains how to set up the static profile on standard OpenVPN clients.
