Emails from server use localhost (not hostname) in urls


Steve Francisco (26139) | asked Feb 20 '09, 11:51 a.m.
I'm playing with RTC in a small setup. The server and main client are on the same machine. I added a new user and the email they received gave a url to the server, but the hostname they received was:
https://localhost:9443/jazz/
That didn't work for them of course because they don't have the server on their own machine.

Is there a configuration so the url's given are properly pointing the the actual server name?

Hi,

The configuration property you are looking for is the Public URI Root,
which can be set by an administrator on this page:
https://<your_server>:9443/jazz/admin/#action=com.ibm.team.repository.admin.configureAdvanced

Once you set that property to point to your server (for example the
jazz.net property is set to https://jazz.net/jazz) it will be used for
links in emails, URIs copied to the clipboard from RTC, etc.

Thanks - that helped but not entirely. It no longer puts "localhost" as the server (which is good). But instead of the server name I provided, it ends up putting a hostname assigned by my IP provider that is different depending on the IP address they have me on at the time. I use DynDns to redirect the host I want people to use to my IP address, and for some reason the Jazz server wants to convert that to the form:
bas15-toronto12-<random_number>.dsl.bell.ca

Is there a way to configure it to use exactly the server name I supply?

Never mind - I found it. I just had to set Host to be what I want it to be in this area of the Advanced Properties:
com.ibm.team.repository.servlet.internal.ServletConfigurationService
