Applications URL by Http server.


Jose Collazo (2177) | asked Apr 26 '15, 1:10 p.m.
 Hello,

I,m configuring a HTTP server to be the front of my CLM solution. I have 4 servers in one of each is running Websphere with the diferents applications and one server for the HTTP. I already configure my http server and the plugin to manage the 3 servers fine. My problem is that if a user try to move to other application from inside Rational by choosing the links in the Home the url is change to the server local URL and not  the HTTp server URL.

I was trying to configure a reverse proxy for this, not sure if this is the correct way to do this, but i have not been able to do it.

Any recomendation on how to work this.  Changing the URLs in th jazz application is not an option.
Thanks,

You would install a reverse proxy. See the deployment Wiki https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Deployment/InstallProxyServers for how to.

This assumes that the reverse proxy hosts the public URI - all applications PublicURI's would have to look like https://public.uri.root:port/ or https://public.uri.root/.

Thanks Ralph, my jts setup was run before the https configuration, do I have to remove the applications from the jts and run the setup againg to add the applications using the the new URLs?


My main problem is in the home button of the jazz that show the original links to the applictions.

If there is existing data, you will have to use the "server rename" feature to change the public URI. Do not attempt to work around it using other unsupported methods.


If you only just installed the product, you can start all over again with empty databases and etc.

Thanks Donald I create new database and install everything new with the http server public url. Thanks Everithing works fine, except the Door plugin. When I try to edit an Artifact it do not load the plugin.  Is there any other configuration for the converter when an http server is used in the front?

I had to add this value to the RM teamserver.property file :

com.ibm.rdm.fronting.server.ConverterURL=https\://URL/converter/htmlgen

Thanks All
