How to hide the server name in SAS url

Hi,

 

We want to hide the name of the server in the URL where we are accessing the SAS UI.

Kindly suggest me if we need to follow any steps.

ex: http://<servername>/SASVisualAnalyticsHub/

The browser needs the servername for access.

Your demand would be the equivalent of "Go somewhere, but I won't tell you where".

Re: How to hide the server name in SAS url

Hi,

Is there anyway to link to any other domain or can we give alias name for that.

for ex: www.mydomain.com etc

You could do that via DNS, but I would strongly, repeat strongly, repeat STRONGLY advise against it. You would have to change ALL your references to the servename in SAS metadata.

It would be easier to re-install SAS on another server with the wanted name, IMHO.

 

What is the reason for this, pardon me, very silly idea?

We actually had a similar requirement, using the server name as the URL was deemed very bad practice security wise by our IT dept.
