Updating URL config

The Update URL Config feature is used to:

  • Configure the IRC Services, the IRC Adapter, both the IRC Services and Adapter, or the Certification Manager on a non-default IIS website.
  • Change the communication protocol for the relevant website.
  • Change the name of the server.
Note: Before you update the URL configuration, ensure that the virtual folders that you create in the Internet Information Server (IIS), on the new specified web site, are the same as those on the original web site. Also, login.aspx must to be added under default document for virtual folder on IIS.

To update the IIS web site, server name, and the communication protocol in the configuration files:

  1. On the Update URL Configuration screen, select the Services or Adapter as applicable.
    • For Services, select the web site on which the Services are configured.
    • For Adapter, select the web site on which the adapter is configured.
    • For Certification Manager, select the web site on which Certification Manager is configured.
  2. Select the communication protocol configured on the selected website.
  3. Change the server name if required:
    • If http is selected as the protocol, specify the complete Fully Qualified Name (FQN) of the server.(Example: servername.domain).
    • If https is selected as the protocol, specify the complete Fully Qualified Name (FQN) of the server(exactly as appears on the certificate) along with the port number.(Example: servername.domain:port number).
  4. Click Update to update the URLs in the configurations.

    The information panel provides the details of the update operation. This information can also be viewed in the notepad from the View Log button.

    • If the Services and the Adapter are hosted on the same web site, you must update both the Services and the Adapter.
    • Based on whether the Services or Adapter is selected, clicking Update will update the respective configurations.
    • After updating the URL configuration changes, perform an IISRESET, clear the .Net cache, and restart the Services so that the changes are reflected.
    Note: When you update the URL Config, the OFAC related web service configuration information also gets updated in the web.config xml file.
