We are just getting setup with Portal and I'm having some difficulties. I'm guessing my problem is relating to how I have IIS or the self signed cert. setup. I'm kind of new with IIS so this could be very simple.
I recognize that using a self signed cert is not best practice for production, but this is just our test env and I am simply trying to get to a point where I can really start playing around with portal, deploying web apps to our local server using our AGS map services.
However, I am seeing behavior where I navigate to the my content page https://<webservername>/portal/home/content.html without an issue. No cert warning etc. Then when I click any of the navigation links within Portal, the web address defaults back to http. so the my organization url looks like http://<webservername>/portal/home/organization.html
I can fix it by simply adding the "s" after http, to keep moving along, but clearly there is some setting I'm missing. Anyone have an idea of what I'm missing?
Solved! Go to Solution.
And a big thank you Sir. That was fairly easy to fix... I'm sure I'll have more posts as I stand this thing up on beta.
Navigate to Portal > My Organization Page > Edit Settings > Security > Check "allow access to the portal through SSL only" un-check "allow anonymous access to your portal"
Seems to have fixed my problem.
Thanks, Paul - Cheers.
I think that was my fix awhile back
I think you might have some trouble with self signed cert. I think you need CA or a domain one.
Also, if using IE, need to turn off compatibility mode.
There are a couple of longer threads (under Issues Closed) about this sort of thing on the Esri Chef Cookbook on GitHub. Worth the read.
I agree with running into trouble with the Self Signed Cert. I think i'm already seeing some of these issues, but while I wait for IT to help me with a CA issued, this will get me into the app to see how much trouble I can cause...
Thank you for the IE tip and the other reference material. Greatly appreciated.
Thanks again Paul
