Issue/Introduction

Sometimes, when connecting to a Web Portal with the PAM Browser, we may need to search for a specific text string or for several ones.
It seems that the standard keystrokes CTRL+F, and many others, are not captured by the PAM Browser.
This document provides a workaround to achieve it.

I need to search some text within the PAM Browser but CTRL+F is not working. How can I do it?

Environment

Any Virtual or Physical Appliance running any PAM Server version.

Resolution

  • The PAM Browser does only respond to the following Keystrokes for paging purposes (PgUp/PgDn/Home/End). So, unfortunately, the search capability is not implemented.
  • If you do not need the session recording capability when accessing the WEB Portal, the native browser can be used instead of the PAM Browser.
  • If the session recording is needed, as a workaround, an┬áRDP Application consisting of a regular browser connected to the portal you want to work on, can be created on a 'jump server' .┬áDoing so, we will be able to perform the recording of the RDP session and we will have all the features implemented in our favorite Web Browser.

Additional Information

In the CA-PAM community an idea has been open to implement the most popular keystrokes in the PAM Browser:
