Introduction:
Sometimes, when connecting to a Web Portal with the PAM Browser, we may need to search for a specific text string or for several ones.
It seems that the standard keystrokes CTRL+F, and many others, are not captured by the PAM Browser.
This document provides a workaround to achieve it.
Question:
I need to search some text within the PAM Browser but CTRL+F is not working. How can I do it?
Environment:
Any Virtual or Physical Appliance running any PAM Server version.
Answer:
  • The PAM Browser does only respond to the following Keystrokes for paging purposes (PgUp/PgDn/Home/End). So, unfortunately, the search capability is not implemented.
  • If you do not need the session recording capability when accessing the WEB Portal, the native browser can be used instead of the PAM Browser.
  • If the session recording is needed, as a workaround, an┬áRDP Application consisting of a regular browser connected to the portal you want to work on, can be created on a 'jump server' .┬áDoing so, we will be able to perform the recording of the RDP session and we will have all the features implemented in our favorite Web Browser.
Additional Information:
In the CA-PAM community an idea has been open to implement the most popular keystrokes in the PAM Browser:
