Configure IDOL Data Admin to Use SSL

By default, IDOL Data Admin runs in plain HTTP mode. You can configure it to use SSL communications, by setting the appropriate system properties in the Java run command.


If you enable SSL, you cannot use plain HTTP with IDOL Data Admin.

To configure IDOL Data Admin to use SSL

If you run IDOL Data Admin as a service on Windows, you can also add the same arguments to the dataadmin.xml file.

If you run IDOL Data Admin as a service on Linux, you can add the argument to the existing arguments variable in for SysV, or dataadmin.conf for Upstart.

When you modify the IDOL Data Admin configuration by modifying the XML file or start scripts, you must restart IDOL Data Admin to apply your configuration changes.
