Clarity PPM On Premise

Issue/Introduction

When using a Web Application Firewall with Clarity, we observed that Clarity New UX/ Old UX navigation is being blocked by the firewall citing different issues.

Cause

Web Application firewall scans the URL for potential threats/vulnerabilities based on the URL. Depending on the rules enforced all those requests are blocked by WAF and are not sent to Clarity Web server causing unexpected behavior on the application

Environment

Release : All Supported Clarity Release

Component : CA PPM APPLICATION

Resolution

Clarity is not supported with a WAF configuration. Clarity doesn't do an URL scan but we do an application level tests based on the data received and prevent popular web application vulnerabilities.

If there are any new vulnerabilities found in the application, we will address then as part of a Application Patch or Application Release.
