Hi,

I have a portal and its corresponding URL like (http://servername:8080/ibi_apps/bip/portal/SelfServeStartinLine) to access it. I want to hide the port number from the URL. I am a beginner Sweating so please explain me clearly..

Thanks,
Johjen Mathew

The HTTP standard port number is 80, not 8080.

Hence, if you want to "hide" the port number, you will have to make sure that the URL is accessible through port 80 instead and then you can leave it out of the URL (which will probably happen automatically for port 80).

How to do that depends on how you set up WebFOCUS.
If you have a web-server (usually IIS or Apache httpd) running at default port 80, it needs to have been set up such that it passes on portal URL requests to whatever is listening on port 8080 (let's assume this is Apache Tomcat). We have IIS and Tomcat, and to pass those requests on we had to set up ISAPI redirection.

If you have nothing listening on port 80, then you can change the configuration of Tomcat to listen on port 80 instead of 8080.

Since these are all guesses, I won't go into details of how set those up. At least now you should have the necessary keywords to find how to in the IBI documentation (start there) or on the internet.

or you could have a server alias set that includes the portal...
