As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

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.

[CLOSED]How to Mask port number from URL

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..

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...
