New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

Hi,

We are running 7.1.4 on tomcat stand alone with SSL enabled. How do I restrict SSL to only the login screens so that the performance does not suffer. For example I need SSL enabled only on the following URL


http://localhost/ibi_apps/login/mr/mr-login.jsp

Thanks

In general:

SSL is used for a connection when the address uses "https://..." This sends traffic to the SSL port (usually 443).

Any connection using "http://" (no "s") will not use SSL and will go through port 80.

Is this not the same under MR?

I had no issues turning on SSL, but the way I was able to do it was to force SSL on the entire application as opposed to just the login page.

Obviously this is not a optimal solution because of overhead associated with SSL. So I am looking for a solution that allows me to turn it on only on the login pages.

I guess I don't understand what you are saying when you say you had to force it on the entire application.

If you can be more specific about what you did and what exactly you are seeing, I will try to provide some better insight. If it's a Tomcat specific problem, this might not be the best place to ask the question but so far I really can't tell what the problem might be.

Hi newtofocus,

Has this issue been resolved?

I ran a quick search on Information Builders' online documents and came across the following which may be of interest:

How to configure SSL with Tomcat as the Application Server?
http://techsupport.informationbuilders.com/sps/21422029.html

How do I change HTTP to HTTPS?
http://techsupport.informationbuilders.com/sps/13002104.html

Hope this helps. Smiler

Cheers,

Kerry
