APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The "Click Here To Access" link in the Admin UI
    (see Customization/Customization) always useses the server's IP
    address and an http protocol. The IP address affects
    applications
    that access the Admin UI using a load balancer. The fixed http
    protocol prevents secure access.

Problem summary

  • Users Affected:
    
    B2B Integrator v6.0, 6.0.3.2
    
    Problem Description:
    
    Customization UI always uses IP address in the URL used to
    access the
    
    site. This causes issues when the Sterling
    Integrator/Sterling File Gateway is accessed
    via Load Balance. Also, after upgrading, the customization
    UI throws the following error "Site is not secure."
    
    Platforms affected:
    ALL
    

Problem conclusion

  • Resolution Summary:
    A code fix is provided.
    New behavior is introduced to enable customization of the
    internal URL used to access the customization UI. The new
    behavior allows the protocol, server name, and port to be
    overidden by properties and properties to be overridden by
    environment variables.
    
    By default, the URL is generated using the protocol and server
    name used to access the Admin UI. The port is determined by the
    protocol and obtained from either LIBERTY_PORT or
    LIBERTY_HTTPS_PORT properties both defined in sandbox.cfg. The
    protocol and servername may be overridden by (2) new properties
    (customization.ui.protocol and customization.ui.host) defined in
    ui.properties. In addition, a new environment variable
    (LIBERTY_EXTERNAL_PROTOCOL) has been introduced.
    
    If any of these variables are defined, each overrides the
    corresponding property. To disable the new behavior and restore
    the prior behavior, change the value of a new property in
    ui.properties called enable.customization.ui.url.override to
    false.
