CA Performance Management - Usage and Administration DX NetOps


We upgraded our test env from 3.7.18 to NetOps20.2.8. 

We are using an external link in a dashboard. In the latest version, there is a message in the dashboard about the link being blocked.

"This content is blocked. Contact the site owner to fix the issue."

wget from the NetOps Portal command line works to access the URL 

External URL dashboard not working after upgrade 

External URL dashboard stopped working after upgrade 



Release : 20.2

Component : NetOps Portal 


We now no longer allow external links in browser views in PM by default. This is due to a new security setting. You can change the setting and allow these pages however you open yourself up to XSS (cross site scripting software attack) by not using X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN.


To allow Performance Center in Frames run the following: 

cd /opt/CA/PerformanceCenter/
1 DX NetOps
4. Single Sign-On; 
2 Local Value ; 
15. Allow Single Sign-On in a frame:; 
u to update the value; 
1 to set to enable.
