McAfee Web Reporter Does Not Show Some UserNames In The Reports

Jump to solution

Hello All,

regarding the McAfee Web Reporter, it does not bring the usernames in the reports for some websites, I just want to ask if the authentication rule location affects such behaviors??

because we have a WhiteList rule before the authentication rule in the McAfee Web Gateway Policy??!

Thanks in advance.
Anas

That can well be. Any URL that is whitelisted from authentication will not be authenticated (obviously) in addition there might be URLs with response code 407 w/o a user name, as these are the request that hit MWG and it replies back with 407 in order to trigger authentication.
