First Party Configuration

In First Party Mode, the PxModule acts as a reverse proxy for client requests and
sensor activity.

The PxModule is configured with First-Party mode enabled by default.

To confirm that you have configured your PerimeterX ASP.NET Enforcer in First-Party mode, review the PxModule configuration.

First Party Enabled Example (default value)

Below is an example of a basic configuration for the PerimeterX PxModule.

<perimeterX>
    <pxModuleConfigurationSection
      enabled="true"
      appId="<PX Application ID>"
      apiToken="<API token>"
      cookieKey="<cookie key>"
      monitorMode="true"
      blockingScore="100"
      >
    </pxModuleConfigurationSection>
  </perimeterX>
  • If firstPartyEnabled or firstPartyXhrEnabled are not found in your PxModule configuration block, the First-Party Mode is enabled in the Enforcer. (Continue to the Next Steps below.
  • Otherwise, proceed to the First Party Mode Disabled Example.

First Party Mode Disabled Example

Below is an example of a basic configuration for the PxModule module.

The presence of the firstPartyEnabled and firstPartyXhrEnabled with values of false confirm that the default configuration has been changed and First-Party mode is disabled.

<perimeterX>
    <pxModuleConfigurationSection
      enabled="true"
      appId="<PX Application ID>"
      apiToken="<API token>"
      cookieKey="<cookie key>"
      monitorMode="true"
      blockingScore="100"
      firstPartyEnabled="false"
      firstPartyXhrEnabled="false"
      >
    </pxModuleConfigurationSection>
  </perimeterX>

In order to enable First Party Mode, you need to set both the firstPartyEnabled and firstPartyXhrEnabled to true and reload your configuration and continue to the Next Steps below.
