Configuring Server for HTTPS Redirection

Last Updated: 12/06/2018 Introduced in Version: 2.0

The Decisions portal can be configured to force users to use SSL (HTTPS) connections by redirecting HTTP requests to HTTPS. The following describes how to configure your server to do HTTPS redirection.

Example

IIS Configuration:
Configure IIS for HTTPS. To do so follow Microsoft’s instructions found here.
Install the IIS URL Rewrite Module found here.
 
Decisions Installation/Configuration:
Install Decisions. During the installation wizard, configure base URL to be https://{urlToDecisionsPortal}
 
If you are already installed, then you can edit the settings.xml file and modify your “PortalBaseURL” setting to include https.
This document can be found: C:\Program Files\Decisions\Decisions Services Manager\settings.xml
 
After installation, edit the web.config file found at: C:\Program Files\Decisions\Decisions Web Host\web.config.
Just before the </configuration> tag add the following block.

Now any requests made to the HTTP address should be redirected to the HTTPS address.
