[JSA] X-Force feeds not updated with proxy enabled



Article ID: KB31626 KB Last Updated: 21 Jun 2019Version: 2.0

Managed hosts in a deployment contact the Console's Apache server to send cached requests. After X-Force data is received by the JSA Console, the result is cached and replayed for all other managed hosts that make a request for new IP reputation data. This article explains the issue and suggests a workaround.


Users cannot see any data updated in following locations:


If you have a proxy configured in your network, administrators will need to update httpd on the console in order to pass-through the existing request and to also send the request through the proxy server in order to receive the X-Force data.


NOTE: NTLM authentication is not supported.

  1. Use SSH to log in to the JSA Console.
  2. Open the /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf file in a text editor.
  3. Add the following lines before </VirtualHost>:
    ProxyRemote http://PROXY_IP:PROXY_PORT

    ProxyRemote http://PROXY_IP:PROXY_PORT
  4. Update the IP address and port of the corporate proxy server to allow an anonymous connection to the X-Force security servers.
  5. Save the changes to the ssl.conf file.
  6. Restart the tomcat service by typing the following command:
    For JSA release 7.2.8 and lower: 
    service tomcat restart

    For JSA release 7.3.0 and higher: 
    systemctl restart tomcat

    Restarting the tomcat service on the JSA console logs out all users;  the managed hosts might produce error messages. Restart the tomcat service during scheduled maintenance windows.

Modification History:
2019-06-20: Updated the KB with service restart command for JSA release 7.3.0 and higher.
