Configure IDOL Site Admin to Use SSL

By default, IDOL Site 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 Site Admin.

To configure IDOL Site Admin to use SSL

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

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

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