Summary


This article describes how to enable SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) to secure communications to and from the InfoBurst Platform.


Prerequisites
  • Installation of a valid SSL certificate. See your Windows Server administrator for information about obtaining and install an SSL certificate.
  • Certificate domain must match fully qualified domain used to connect to InfoBurst

Enable SSL
  • In InfoBurst select Settings > System Configuration
  • Select Enable SSL then select the certificate
  • Select Save
  • Stop the InfoBurstPlatform service
  • Open a command prompt and browse to the application root (default = C:\Program Files (x86)\InfoSol\InfoBurstPlatform)
  • Enter enable_ssl
  • Start the InfoBurstPlatform service

SSL is now enabled. The InfoBurst user interface URL will now require HTTPS. Any dashboards or applications that communicate with InfoBurst via REST (default = 8551) must be updated to use HTTPS.


Disable SSL


Do not delete the certificate until the following steps are executed:

  • In InfoBurst select Settings > System Configuration
  • Uncheck Enable SSL
  • Select Save
  • Stop the InfoBurstPlatform service
  • Open a command prompt and browse to the application root (default = C:\Program Files (x86)\InfoSol\InfoBurstPlatform)
  • Enter disable_ssl
  • Start the InfoBurstPlatform service


SSL is now disabled. The InfoBurst user interface URL no longer requires HTTPS. SAP Dashboard users must disable SSL in any/all dashboard connectors.
