On EX4300 switches, the structured-data format for system log messages is not supported in the J-Web interface. If system log messages are configured to be written in structured data, the event logs in J-Web is not populated, and you are unable to view them using Monitor > Events and Alarms > View Events.

Workaround: Use the show log operational mode command for viewing structured-data format files.

The J-Web interface does not support role-based access control; it supports only users in the super-user authorization class. Therefore, a user who is not in the superuser class, such as a user with view-only permission, is able to launch the J-Web interface and is allowed to configure everything, but the configurations fail on commit, and the switch displays access permission errors. This is a known software limitation.

If you uninstall the J-Web Platform package by using CLI, reinstalling the Application package will not restore J-Web.
