System Alias for URL iViews

66 Views

Hi,

We have several "web based back-end systems" and in portal we have a greate amount of URL iViews that will point to those systems. Ofcourse these systems are devided into DEV,TEST,Consolidation,Production,Eudication.

The hostname and portnumber need to be dynamic, so the iViews dont stops to work after a transport. Hence, we need to use an Alias instead. To support this we try to use a HTTP connector but it seems it only are for authentication purpose.

So the question is>

How to setup a HTTP Alias for a back-end system, to be used by URL-iViews

E.g.

System Connector we define http://somehostname:5003/

Set Alias=HTTP

In the URL Editor

URL property = /webpage1

Select System=HTTP

Result>

http://somehostname:5003/webpage1
