Displaying Users Editing the Configuration

To display a list of users editing the device configuration, select Config Management > History. The list is displayed as Database Information in the main pane. Table 67 summarizes the Database Information display.

After you make changes to the configuration in this window, you must commit the changes immediately for them to take effect. To commit all changes to the active configuration, select Commit Options > Commit. See Using the Commit Options to Commit Configuration Changes (J-Web Procedure) for details about all commit options.

When you use an HTTPS connection in the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser to save a report from this page in the J-Web interface, the error message "Internet Explorer was not able to open the Internet site" is displayed. This problem occurs because the Cache-Control: no cache HTTP header is added on the server side and Internet Explorer does not allow you to download the encrypted file with the Cache-Control: no cache HTTP header set in the response from the server.

As a workaround, refer to Microsoft Knowledge Base article 323308, which is available at this URL: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/323308. Also, you can alternatively use HTTP in the Internet Explorer browser or use HTTPS in the Mozilla Firefox browser to save a file from this page.
