Configuring web server security

For security reasons, the portal search seedlist by default redirects to HTTPs. Therefore, you need to configure your web server for HTTPs.

About this task

For information about how to do this, go to the Installing section of the HCL Portal documentation. Select the appropriate operating system for your installation, and then the subsection for a stand-alone or clustered environment. Then, select the topic about Preparing a remote Web server.

What to do next

If you do not want to provide HTTPs security for your portal search seedlist, you can configure portal search to use HTTP only. To do this, run the configuration task action-modify-servlet-transport-guarantee-none-wp.search.servlets/seedlist/servletEAR. Use the following syntax, depending on your environment:
AIX
./ConfigEngine.sh action-modify-servlet-transport-guarantee-none-wp.search.servlets/seedlist/servletEAR -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasPassword=password
HP-UX
./ConfigEngine.sh action-modify-servlet-transport-guarantee-none-wp.search.servlets/seedlist/servletEAR -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasPassword=password
IBM i
ConfigEngine.sh action-modify-servlet-transport-guarantee-none-wp.search.servlets/seedlist/servletEAR -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasPassword=password
Linux
./ConfigEngine.sh action-modify-servlet-transport-guarantee-none-wp.search.servlets/seedlist/servletEAR -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasPassword=password
Solaris
./ConfigEngine.sh action-modify-servlet-transport-guarantee-none-wp.search.servlets/seedlist/servletEAR -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasPassword=password
Windows
ConfigEngine.bat action-modify-servlet-transport-guarantee-none-wp.search.servlets/seedlist/servletEAR -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasPassword=password
z/OS
./ConfigEngine.sh action-modify-servlet-transport-guarantee-none-wp.search.servlets/seedlist/servletEAR -DPortalAdminPwd=password -DWasPassword=password
For your updates to take effect, restart your portal server.
