Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:  Applications invoking REST API behind a     *
    *                  proxy server.                               *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: When redirecting using a proxy the      *
    *                      URLs generated by BPM use incorrect     *
    *                      hostnames.                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The generated URLs for teamworks/ajaxCoach and
    /tasks/clientSettings append the incorrect hostnames when
    configured behind a proxy.  The X-FORWARDED-HOST and
    X-FORWARDED-PROTOCOL headers are not properly utilized. This
    results in a failed URL redirection.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Code changes have been made to properly use the headers when
    configured.  An interim fix is available on v8.0.1.1. The fix
    will also be integrated into the next release.
    

Temporary fix
