BAC HTTPS login

Jump to solution

In order to open an access to HP BAC, our security team demanded to enable HTTPS to the BAC login page.

 

I looked in the BAC documentation, and found the following procedure:

  1. Enable SSL on the web server itself
  2. On the Business Availability Center Gateway, open <Business Availability Center installation dir>/AppServer/site.war/WEB-INF/web.xml. 
  3. 3 Set IsHTTPSForce attribute to "true". 
  4. 4 Restart the Business Availability Center Gateway.

Now, in step 2, I couldn't find a proper dir, it seems like a typo, and the file actually in /AppServer/WebApps/site.war/WEB-INF/web.xml

In step 3, I couldn't find the IsHTTPSForce parameter in the file at all.

And in overall, after creating the IIS SSL certificate, the BAC spider view became blue (No data update).

 

Did someone suceed enabling the HTTPS BAC login?

If you're using BAC 8.06, definitely <Business Availability Center installation dir>/AppServer/site.war/WEB-INF/web.xml should exist.  Perhaps you're looking on the BAC Data Processing Server instead of the Gateway server?  It's definitely will not be present on the BAC DPS.

Hi,

 

Thank you for your help.

 

The SSL part is done by our system admin.

We use a windows BAC installation with IIS 6

 

I followed page 75 in the attached document.

Thank you, I understood my mistake here - we are using BAC 8.04, for which the procedure is different.
