WebYaST 1.3

Release Notes

Publication date: 2014-06-17

1 General

WebYaST is a web-based remote console, providing a set of configuration modules appropriate to enable minimal user control of the application image or appliance black box environment.

2 Installation of WebYaST 1.3

WebYaST 1.3 has merged the REST service and the Web User Interface services into a single service, running on port 4984. If you update from 1.2 to 1.3 and want to expose the Web User Interface, make sure to open port 4984 in the firewall (this will be done automatically during update). Both the REST service and Web User Interface are now running via protocol HTTPS.
