Disable SAS web URL thru SMC

hello,

I have configure https SSL for our SAS web application but the old URL using the “http” still working as well.

Is there any way to disable the old URL from SMC ?

I tried below steps but it didn’t work

  • In SAS Management Console, navigate to Plug-ins Application Management Configuration Manager SAS Application Infrastructure Propertiesand right-click to display the SAS Application Infrastructure Properties dialog box.
  • Click the Advancedtab.
  • Click Addto display the Define New Property Window.
  • Enter the property name as shown, and specify the property value:

sas.web.csrf.referers.blacklist

Re: Disable SAS web URL thru SMC

Your web service runs over a web server. Depending on SAS release and platform, this is usually a derivative of apache.

I suggest disabling the HTTP port in the web server configuration, or implementing an automatic reroute to HTTPS there.

And you need (at the moment I can only speak for SAS 9.2) to replace all the http:// references with https:// in the SAS SMC.

 

The setup looks like this:

 

Internet or LAN -> (HTTP or HTTPS port) -> webserver -> web server interface module for the servlet container -> internal port -> servlet container (earlier tomcat, with SAS 9.2 jboss, don't know for 9.4) -> servlets (web applications).

 

The change in SAS metadata is needed so that only https:// references appear in the links that the servlets create.
