Pulse Secure Traffic Manager 20.1 Released

In this release, Pulse Secure Traffic Manager offers some additional capabilities to support secure authentication for administrators, and functions to assist in building custom policies for Global Load Balancing. This release will also benefit from Long-Term Support for customers looking for extended operations. Highlights include:

  • LDAPS Authentication for Administrators - Traffic Manager now supports authentication for administrators over both LDAP and LDAPS, configured through the System > Users > Authenticators admin page. The new ldap!ssl configuration key can be used to require that connections to a remote LDAP server are SSL-encrypted using either the STARTTLS or LDAPS mechanism.

  • TrafficScript support for GLB workloads - In this release, Pulse vTM includes a new Traffic Script function glb.service.getLocationLoad() which can be called from within a custom script to inspect the workload at a given location. In addition to the built-in algorithms for distributing global traffic, this new function gives more flexibility when writing custom algorithm for a Global Load Balancing Service that needs to access the workload at a GLB location.

    The workload must be set by an external monitor using the setLoad() API call: if not set, this new function will return the response time (in ms) of the health monitor on the service. Using this function allows TrafficScript rules to query the workload from the dataplane without impacting performance. In this simple example, the rule will give priority to available locations with a workload below a given threshold:

    $locations = glb.service.listLocations();
    foreach( $loc in $locations ) {
        $load = glb.service.getLocationLoad($loc);
        if(glb.service.isLocationLive($loc) && $load < $max_load) {


  • Long-Term Support release - For customers who prefer longer support cycles to support their operational model, Pulse Secure is identifying Pulse vTM 20.1 as an LTS (Long Term Support) release. As a result, support for Pulse vTM 20.1 will be available for three years after the release date.

For more information, please refer to the release notes, available on the download portal. A complete set of user documentation is also available on including getting started guides, installation, configuration and API reference documentation.
