How to block the HTTP access to the portal and force HTTPS?

Hello,

I have configured SSL for the server so now the portal is accessible on both http 50000 and https 50001.

I would like to completley block the http access to the portal so users will be forced to use HTTPS.

For that, I have changed the HTTP Service of the dispatcher from this:

(Port:50000,Type:http)(Port:50001, Type:ssl)

To this:

(Port:50001, Type:ssl)

The problem is that when I do that other services are not working such as the SLD.

How can I block the HTTP access to the portal then without affecting the other services?

    Put in a reverse proxy that does the forcing for you for users. This way when someone browses to www.yourcompany.com on port 80 the reverse proxy will redirect them to the proper port (50001).

      I have not tried this particular guide as we ended up doing this on the network level and therefore did not pursue other alternatives. You are welcome to try and report 😊
