Before you Enable HTTPS Only, you must configure your components to work with HTTPS. For more information, see Configuring Your Components to Work with HTTPS.
If you don’t configure your components to work with HTTPS first, you can still enable HTTPS Only. However, this may result in “DOWN” component statuses.
To enable HTTPS Only:
- Log in to the Super Admin portal using your Super Admin account.
For more information, see Logging in to the Super Admin Portal.
The Components page displays by default.
- Click the Settings tab.
The Upload System License page displays by default.
- Click to the left of Security on the left menu.
- Click Advanced from the submenu.
The Advanced page displays.
- Select the HTTPS Only checkbox at the top of the page.
A Confirmation pop-up displays.
- Click Yes to confirm that you want to enable HTTPS only.
A Success pop-up displays.
- Click OK.
A Confirmation pop-up displays indicating that your “SSL settings have been reset. Do you want to reboot the server now?”
- Click Yes.
Your sever reboots and the next time you access the system and return to the Security page, Enable SSL now shows as Disable SSL, the HTTPS Only checkbox is selected, which confirms that your SSL and HTTPS implementation is successful.
When the Disable http to https redirect checkbox is checked, redirecting from http to https is disabled.
