Patterns Overview

nevisAdmin 4 comes with an extensive set of patterns to configure Nevis.

This chapter provides an overview of the functionality covered by the standard pattern library.

The library contains patterns for known use cases, as well as generic patterns for low-level configuration.

The following categories exist:

  • Instance Patterns: Patterns that set up instances of nevisProxy, nevisAuth, nevisIDM, and other Nevis components.
  • Application Protection: Patterns to configure reverse proxy and WAF features using nevisProxy.
  • Authentication: Patterns that set up authentication using nevisAuth.
  • Identity Management: Patterns to configure identity management and authentication using nevisIDM.
  • Mobile Authentication: Patterns to configure mobile authentication use cases.
  • Key Management: Patterns to configure key material and certificates.
  • Add-ons: Patterns that can be assigned to other patterns to configure certain aspects.
  • Experimental: Patterns that are incubating and may change in future releases. After the experimental phase, they will become standard patterns.

Graphical User Interface

Detailed settings and help for the individual patterns can be found in the Help section of the nevisAdmin 4 GUI. See also: Working with Patterns.

Generic Patterns

If the standard patterns do not cover your use case, consider using a generic pattern. This allows configuring the functionality at the component level.
