Introduction

The "Sync with User Center" feature lets users synchronize certain information regarding their environment to the Check Point UserCenter.
The additional information that is presented in the UserCenter account provides:

  • Pro-active support
  • More efficient ticket resolution

 

Example of a UserCenter Account

 

 

Prerequisites

  1. Device with licenses and installed policy / database.

  2. Uploading/downloading data to Check Point is allowed.

    For details, refer to sk111080.
  3. Internet connectivity to Check Point.

    • Connectivity between the Security Management Server and usercenter.checkpoint.com.

    • Proxy configuration (if needed).

      For details, refer to sk83520.
      • MDS / Domain : Configure Proxy in the Gaia Portal.
      • Single-Domain: Proxy can be configured in SmartConsole / Gaia Portal.
        Note: When proxy is configured in SmartConsole, the "Install Database" operation is required.

 

How to configure the "Sync with UserCenter" feature

    • In SmartConsole R80.10 and above

      In SmartConsole, on the Navigation Toolbar, click "MANAGE & SETTINGS" > "Sync with UserCenter".

      When synchronization is enabled, an update will occur once a day.


       
      Note: For MDS, The above procedure needs to be done at least on one Domain Management Server in order to sync with the UserCenter. 

  • In SmartDashboard R75.47 - R77.x

    In SmartDashboard, go to the "Help" menu and click "Sync with UserCenter...".


    Clicking the "Sync Now" button runs a relevant script on the Security Management Server. The script collects information from the Security Management database, as well as from the managed Security Gateways and writes it into the $FWDIR/conf/SMC_Files/SU/data_file.xml file.

    Checking the box "Periodically sync server and gateways data with UserCenter" will run the script once a week.

    Once the information is sent to Check Point, the User Center can present it in the list of "Software Products & Appliances".

    Note: In a Multi-Domain Security Management Server environment, this feature is only available per Domain context. Currently, it does not work with Multi-Domain (MDS) context.
