Pinned topic Cognos Express 10.1 over SSL

‏2013-02-01T09:02:41Z |
I will start by simple question - is it possible to configure Cognos Express Manager Web server to use HTTPS protocol instead of HTTP?

      Cognos Express does not support SSL. That is the reason there is no doc for setting up CX with SSL. ;)

        Thanks!

        I noticed that Tomcat server.xml have only one active connector to port 19300. Is it possible to enable AJP connector for CX TomCat?

      The idea is to configure CX to work as localhost only and put it behind Apache proxy and configure Apache to use SSL.

          What about using IIS web server as Cognos Express Gateway:
          http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/data/library/cognos/infrastructure/cognos_specific/page555.html

          Then configure IIS to use SSL...

            That's what I expected as well, but I've noticed, the IIS gateway doesn't retain all webpages. As I understand this IIS gateway is only for authentication (SSO) purposes. At one point, the portal switches back to <server>:19300.

    Cognos Express has never supported SSL and this is not documented as a supported environment.

    The gateway setting instruction is to enable Welcome page login through IIS. All other pages will be redirected to the original URL
