14.10 Disabling OSP Login in ZCC

ZENworks Control Center used to have a database or LDAP-based login. From ZENWorks 2020 Update 2 onwards, it uses OpenID connect-based login where it contacts OSP Authorization Server. The Access token received by OSP is saved in the session to achieve a single sign-on for microservices or other web apps hosted in ZCC.

If you are facing any issue with OSP login, then you have an option to switch back to the legacy login. To disable OSP login and switch back to legacy login, perform the following step:

In the custom-config.xml, update the following setting:

<setting id="use.legacy.zcc.login">

The custom-config.xml file is available in the following location:

  • On Windows: %ZENSERVER_HOME%\zocker\volume\zenserver\conf

  • On Linux: /opt/microfocus/zenworks/share/tomcat/webapps/zenworks/WEB-INF/conf/


  • Ensure that you always use custom-config.xml for customizing ZCC configurations instead of config.xml

  • Enabling this will affect services using tokens such as the Antimalware dashboard.
