Configuring SSL for secure access

Table of contents
No headers

You can configure Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) access to HPE Consumption Analytics Portal.

In the following procedure, <your_keystore_filename> refers to a java keystore to hold your certificates. You can use a pre-existing one or a new one. See the java keytool documentation for more information.

Before you begin

To use SSL, you need a certificate issued by a certificate authority and a certificate chain. Instructions for downloading a certificate chain for your certificate vary and should be available from the certificate authority which issued your certificate.

To configure SSL

  1. Open a command prompt and run the following commands.
    # $JAVA_HOME/bin/keytool -import -alias root -keystore <your_keystore_filename> -trustcacerts -file <filename_of_the_chain_certificate>
    # $JAVA_HOME/bin/keytool -import -alias tomcat -keystore <your_keystore_filename> -file <your_certificate_filename>

    %JAVA_HOME%\bin\keytool -import -alias root -keystore <your_keystore_filename> -trustcacerts -file <filename_of_the_chain_certificate>
    %JAVA_HOME%\bin\keytool -import -alias tomcat -keystore <your_keystore_filename> -file <your_certificate_filename>

  2. Open <install_dir>/conf/ in a text editor and change the following properties. Remove all leading # characters to uncomment these lines.

    • Enable HTTPS.
    • Set the path to your keystore file and your keystore password.
    • (optional) Disable non-SSL (regular HTTP) access.​
  3. Save the file and restart the HPE Consumption Analytics Portal application server.

When running as a Windows service, configuration changes made to or server-template.xml will not take effect until the service is removed and re-installed using ccservice.bat .
