I am trying to setup siteminder WAM UI (in version 12.52) to take requests our https. While the server is running on port 8443, all the https requests immediately get forwarded http on port 8080. I have not changed any default setting in server.xml under <>/ server/default/deploy/jbossweb.sar and has SSL enabled = "tue". Infact WAMUI can take take requests over https but immediately forwards (http 301 status code) to http.
Any ideas why this is happening ?
The community member Ujwol from CA wrote an excellent write up on checking the SiteMinder management console to verify https is the default Base URL. In my case below I am running the WAMUI on the OOTB JBOSS. Your paths may very depending on your application server context.
cp /opt/CA/siteminder/adminui/server/default/deploy/iam_siteminder.ear/management_console.war/WEB-INF/web.xml /opt/CA/siteminder/adminui/server/default/deploy/iam_siteminder.ear/management_console.war/WEB-INF/web.xml.bak/op
Look for AccessFilter and set this to True
Under Environtments -> Siteminder
Verify the Base URL is using the https://fqdn:port/ reference
Thanks to Ujwol for those steps in one of his previous posts.
Here is the post that Adam is referring to:
Configure SiteMinder Administrative UI for HTTP (non SSL) connection
