How to modify/redirect url in IDM 14.1 Vapp

  • 1.  How to modify/redirect url in IDM 14.1 Vapp

    Posted 01-09-2019 04:14 AM


    The main url for user to access IDM is "https://ip address/iam/im/identityEnv "  (ip address to be define the name of server)

    Are there anyway to configure to redirect or use the shortname only because it's not familiar to user to remember the long url.

     

    Thank you,

    Ann

    Try changing this from the /immanage console for the environment under the BaseURL attribute.

    Hi Ann,

     

    I believe you are going to have webserver(eg: Apache) to front end the IDM servers where you will be creating Virtual hosts. Within this you can have a proxy forward rule to take care of this. something like,

     

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/$
    RewriteRule ^/(.*) https://idm.abc.com/iam/im/identityEnv [R,NC,L]

     

    This will forward your friendly LB url  -

    https://idm.abc.com

    to 

    https://idm.abc.com/iam/im/identityEnv

     

    Hope this helps !!!.

     

    Regards

    Ashok

    Hi Ashok,

     

    Thank you for recommendation. Now i  setup the Apache web server in another server to  do the redirect link.

    However, i have some question , How does it works between Web and App in IDM ?

     

    Thank you,

    Ann.

    Refer this article, you need to setup reverse proxy for your IDM app:

    Typical approach is to have a third-party front-end load balancer in front of the vApp. The load balancers can usually modify the entered URL, so that https://idm.company.com/ is redirected to https://idm.company.com/iam/im/identityEnv
