UCMDB Support Tip: How to make uCMDB Browser UI open with https protocol



To use the HTTPS protocol for connection to the HP Universal CMDB (UCMDB) server:


1. In the ucmdb_browser_config.xml file, assign the value https to the tag<protocol> and

assign the UCMDB server HTTPS port value (8443 by default) to the tag <port>.


2. Download the UCMDB server public certificate to the UCMDB Browser machine (if you use

SSL on the UCMDB server, the UCMDB administrator can provide you with this certificate),

and import it into the cacerts trust store on the JRE that is going to connect to the server by

executing the following command:

"%JAVA_HOME%\bin\keytool" -import -alias ucmdb -trustcacerts -file <UCMDBServer-

certificate-file> -keystore "%JAVA_HOME%\jre\lib\security\cacerts"

where <UCMDB-Server-certificate-file> is the full path to the UCMDB server public

certificate file.


3. Restart the Tomcat server.
