Get your license, watch a video, and you're ready to go!
Kumba Software LLC imposes no limits on the number of appliances for which you are licensed. Our license agreement is simple and straightforward. One seat, one license!
Set up your appliances quickly and easily. Arrange your appliances into categories for geographic, environmental, organizational or any other purpose to simplify selection. Share appliance configurations securely with others to prevent duplication of effort, or to be able to switch between clients or any other purpose.
One prerequisite and one-time setup. Nothing could be easier than setting up DPAA®. All you need is Open JDK or Oracle Java JRE version 19 or better, and you're ready to go! Use the Contact Us page to get your license and watch the Getting Started video, and that's all you need to do.
Easily understand appliance and appliance category status with real-time display of categorical relationships, appliance connected state, and when appliances are quiesced. Clearly tell the difference between appliance categories and appliances. Know the difference icons that show for domains, such as quiesce state, when the domains need to be saved, when trace or diagnostics are enabled, when the logs are set at debug, and when probes are turned on for one or more services within a domain.
Locate, Manage and control Configuration Objects
Though DataPower will show you object references going down the hierarchy, DPAA® not only allows you to see references in both directions, but shows the references is a much more understandable way and can show them for any number of objects at the same time. Not only that, DPAA® will drill all the way down to the file level so you can easily see which files are being referenced by the various objects within the hierarchy.
DPAA® is designed with productivity, ease of use, and always the ability to perform tasks against multiple objects across any number of appliances and domains. These features include simple and complex property management, editing and synchronization. Synchronize your load balancer group members. Set up your probe triggers for all your service objects at the same time. Manage ciphers for SSL Server and Client profiles, and much, much more.
Do you like that object configuration and need another one almost just like it? DPAA® allows you to save objects of any kind under a new name, effectively cloning them on the spot. And, of course, it can do it for any number of objects across any number of appliances and domains.
Sometimes a little magic comes your way. DPAA® is the only tool on the planet allowing you to perform a refactoring rename of objects with just a few clicks of a mouse and a little typing. Once the object is renamed, DPAA® reconfigures all objects referencing the object to ensure the references and object hierarchy remain properly intact.
When exporting configurations from DataPower using DPAA®, you'll no longer have to worry about overwriting other exported objects, even when acting upon the same object from multiple appliances and domains.
DPAA® puts a unique twist on configuration imports by allowing you to import multiple files in one go, all the while controlling the order the files are imported. For each import file, whether it be XML or XCFG, you can apply deployment policies with associated deployment policy variables.
There is no other feature like DPAA®'s SnapShot. Snapshot allows you to put every single individual object, file and certificate under version control. Then, after you have taken a few snapshots, you can compare any two snapshots from any two historical dates to quickly identify exactly which objects, files and certificates have changed.
With DPAA®, you can update certificates and keys referenced by a crypto identification credential from ob-board or external sources. For on-board files, just select the files for each certificate and key, apply any needed passwords, and you're set. For external sources, locate the files, indicate where you want them uploaded, what the file names should be when uploaded to the appliance, set any needed passwords, and you'll be done sooner than you can say "Update my Crypto Identification Creden
Configuration objects can be deleted in a snap with DPAA®. In addition to your normal object delete, DPAA® gives you the power of cascading deletes, meaning when you delete an object, you can delete all the objects referenced by that object! Not only that, DPAA® takes cascading delete all the way down to the file level, helping you keep you DataPower environment clean and fresh without all the trash typically left behind.
Locate Certificates by CN, DN, SAN, or Issuer or any other way. Compare, export and update them from a variety of sources.
DPAA® allows you to locate certificates wherever they happen to be. Just select where you want to search, or search everything, DPAA® doesn't care. Enter a regular expression to find certificates by Subject DN, SAN or Issuer. You can also quickly list certificates coming up for expiration
DPAA® automates certificate creation from files located on your local file system. You'll never be able to do it faster in any other way. Just select the files you want, customize any names as needed, and you're done! That is simple!
Compare certificates within and across appliances and domains. You can also compare certificates within the appliances with certificates in files within your local file system or with certificates hosted at URLs.
When you keep your certificates and keys as separate files within your appliances, DPAA® makes updating them simple and straightforward. You can update certificates from files located on your local file system, and even update them from certificates hosted on remove servers!
In just a few clicks, DPAA® gives you the power to create validation credentials from any arbitrary list of certificates, and you can do it all at one time on as many appliances and domains as needed! DPAA® puts the "power" in DataPower.
When managing certificates, it is nice to be able to clean out old and expired certificates and their related password maps and files. DPAA® gives you that ability in a few quick clicks, all the while helping you to protect the things you want to keep.
There are so many features DPAA® offers with certificate management, you'll never need to turn to anything else. You can find what references certificate objects. Easily disable and enable certificate objects. Delete certificates directly from the search screen or within the object management screen.
Locate IP addresses, add, edit, copy, move and delete IPs wherever they are configured.
DPAA® offers robust IP management features including the ability to copy and move IP addresses across appliances. Want to move some IP addresses from an ethernet interface to a VLAN or Link Aggregation interface? No problem!
There is no more powerful DataPower tool for quickly and effectively conducting ping and TCP connection tests than what DPAA® provides. Test arbitrary lists of IPs and ports and entire network ranges in one go. Test all the members of load balancer groups with just a click of the mouse!
DPAA® removes the laborious process of creating host aliases by allowing you to create them when adding new IPs, or by mass-creating them for IPs already on your Ethernet, Link Aggregation or VLAN interfaces.
Find and control user accounts on the appliances
Keeping users synchronized and managed across multiple appliances is so much easier with DPAA®. From adding, finding and deleting accounts, to password management, to disconnecting user sessions, everything is simple.
Every status provider can be viewed, monitors, graphed, saved & compared
Easily view and actively monitor status providers aggregated across appliances and domains in seconds. DPAA® supports every status provider within DataPower, even some no longer available to you via the Web interface. Setup continuous monitoring.
DPAA® provides a robust and dynamic graphing capability for eligible status providers. Create multiple graphs per provider. Change graph style on the fly. Graph one or more properties at a time, and aggregate the view across multiple appliances and domains at once.
DPAA® gives you the ability to slice and dice status output with extremely advanced filtering. Build your filter expression using a convenient dialog using regular expressions. Save your favorite filtering expressions and recall them on a later date when needed.
When viewing status information, in many cases, DPAA® enables you to pop up a menu of actions you can invoke right from the status output screen. From clearing Kerberos tickets to document caches, there are many actions you can take.
Aggregate real-time log views for any logging target
