Proxy (httpd)


To edit the httpd.conf, please follow this guide.

Boards can be configured either as a standalone domain, or on the same domain as HCL Connections. For details on these config options please see here. Please follow the appropriate instructions below:

a) New Domain

  • Allow CORS - follow these instructions.

  • httpd

    <VirtualHost *:443>
        ServerName [BOARDS-URL]
        ProxyPreserveHost On
        ProxyPass / http://[KUBERNETES_NAME]/
        ProxyPassReverse / http://[KUBERNETES_NAME]/
        # Disable SSLv2
        SSLProtocolDisable SSLv2
        # Set strong ciphers
        SSLCipherSpec TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA
        SSLCipherSpec TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA

b) Existing domain


If you have an NGINX (e.g. customizer) in front of IHS use that instead to support websockets and use one less proxy. Follow this guide for nginx.

The following configuration should be set when Huddo Boards is deployed at a context root under the existing HCL Connections domain.

It also includes a proxy rewrite rule, to serve the migrated Board when the legacy Activity URL is requested.

<VirtualHost *:443>
    ServerName [CONNECTIONS_URL]

    # redirect Activities to Boards once migrated
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteRule ^/activities/service/html/(.*)$ /boards/activities/service/html/$1  [R]

    #Huddo Boards
    ProxyPass "/boards" "http://[KUBERNETES_NAME]:[KUBERNETES_PORT]/boards"
    ProxyPassReverse "/boards" "http://[KUBERNETES_NAME]:[KUBERNETES_PORT]/boards"
    ProxyPass "/api-boards" "http://[KUBERNETES_NAME]:[KUBERNETES_PORT]/api-boards"
    ProxyPassReverse "/api-boards" "http://[KUBERNETES_NAME]:[KUBERNETES_PORT]/api-boards"
    #End Huddo Boards


  • [CONNECTIONS_URL] is the URL of your HCL Connections deployment
  • [KUBERNETES_NAME] is the hostname/IP of the master in your cluster
  • [KUBERNETES_PORT] is the port of your Ingress Controller (ie 32080)

For example:

<VirtualHost *:443>

    #Huddo Boards
    ProxyPass "/boards" ""
    ProxyPassReverse "/boards" ""
    ProxyPass "/api-boards" ""
    ProxyPassReverse "/api-boards" ""
    #End Huddo Boards
