Tip: The Lifecycle Project Administration UI redirects infinitely with certain configurations

If the Lifecycle Project Administration application is configured with a capital letter in the hostname of its frontside URL, the UI will redirect infinitely.

More Information

The Lifecycle Project Administration application attempts to make sure the user is accessing the UI using the public URL, and it redirects the user if the request URL doesn’t match the frontside URL. This leads to an infinite redirect when the frontside URL contains a capital letter since the browser always converts requests to use a lower-case hostname. In order to fix this problem, change the frontside URL in /conf/admin/admin.properties so the hostname is entirely lower-case and restart the Lifecycle Project Administration application.
