URL Generator Services

Hello,

when I try to change the protocoll in "Host" in the "URL Generator Services" (under "Global Services") from http to https, the TREX monitor shows an SSL error by crawling new documents (but then the links in email notifications are working correctly with the right URLs with https). Because the TREX is behind some firewalls I do not want to configure any additional SSL connection, only the portal plattform runs on SSL.

Is it possible to edit the links in email notification without changing the host parameter and without configuring SSL for TREX? Or are there other possibilities to solve this problem?

Regards,

Frank

    Hi Frank,

    there is a solution for your problem:

    Just upgrade to SP2 Patch 5 or newer (SP) version. There you are able to create different URLs

    for the Backend systems (for example TREX) and for the normaly Portal users using the new parameter Alternative Host under "URL Generator Service".

    Under "Host" you will configure "https://..." so that you get the notifications mails with https links, and under "Alternative Host" you configure "http://.." so that TREX will avoid authentication for SSL.

    Hope this information was usefull to you, 😉

    Hi Frank,

    for the notification mails this is not possible. They always use the parameters set at the URLGenerator service.

    This cannot be configured...

    Sorry to tell...

    Regards

      Hi Dirk,

      if that is right, is it also correct to say that I have to configure SSL on TREX to be able to change the link from http to https? And is it also correct that it is enough only to configure an ssl connection beetween the CM Java Client and the TREX Web Server or must I configure all components in SSL?

      Regards,

      Frank
