Redirect crowd to https


how can i redirect to https?

In the server.xml i configured an http connector on Port 8095, redirect Port 443 and proxyname, proxyport, scheme.

In the web.xml security constraints are inserts with pattern /* or /crowd/*

The apache http server listen on Port 80 and 443 with proxy to Port 8095.

Any ideas?

Best regards

Hi Falk,

I understand you want tomake sure all traffic to your Crowd server goes through https (SSL).

To redirect at the Apache proxy, please see: Redirect Request to SSL and Redirect.

To redirect at the Tomcat level, please make sure you are editing the web.xml at <Crowd_install>/crowd-webapp/WEB-INF and not the one at <Crowd_install>/apache-tomcat/conf. 

Add the following declaration to the end of the file, before the </web-app>tag:

<web-resource-name>Restricted URLs</web-resource-name>

Crowd will have to be restarted to pick up the change to the web.xml.

I look forward to hearing whether either of these redirect methods work for you.
