PRM over https

Sep 13, 2011 at 4:18 AM

Hi there,

Has anyone deployed the PRM site and had it working over https?

Thanks in advanced

Yes, but it will take a little work on your behalf.  First off, are you using CRM 4 or CRM 2011?

Some things to consider:

1. You will need to use the latest SDK and update the portal to use it instead of the portal assemblies that were shipped with the accelerator

2. For the frontside editing, you will have to change the urls for the CDNs from http://apis...  to //apis... to ensure that front-side editing works while in https

3. Adding code to detect http and redirect to https.

Thanks Shan,

We are not enabling any of the frontside editing so that is not a concern at this point.

Everything seems to work okay except the ServiceContext.GetUrl(page) method seems to return the correct URL, but with port 80 post-fixed, for example https://theportal:80/cases/editCase?CaseID=52560671-2fdb-e011-9599-00505682001c

I am not entirely sure if this is IIS doing it or if I am running an older version of the portal (Downloaded in April 2011).  Any ideas on how I could reliably troubleshoot the source of the port 80 post-fix?

Would a https redirect handler sort this issue out as you sugested in point 3?
