    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When utilizing the REST API /taskTemplate, the returned URL
    may not be appended with the proper hostname.  If a proxy
    server is configured, the request header may contain the
    X-FORWARDED-HOST and X-FORWARDED-PROTOCOL.  These properties
    are not picked up when generated the response URL for
    /taskTemplate.  Therefore, the redirection of the request does
    not happen.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code changes have been implemented to properly append the host
    name from the request header and generate the proper URL. An
    interim fix is available on v8.0.1.1. The fix will be
    integrated into the next fix pack.
    
    Install/Dependency information is available in the readme.txt
    on FixCentral. When the user goes to the download files page
    in FixCentral, the readme will be available with the fix
    package as a separate download.
