HTTP

In versions 2.1 through 3.0.2, the MCS includes a Configure HTTP dialog that lets you configure access to the MapR Control System via HTTP and HTTPS. As an alternative, you can edit web.conf, which resides in the /opt/mapr/conf directory.

Warning: In version 3.1 and later, the HTTP settings can only be modified by editing web.conf directly.

The sections in the Configure HTTP dialog let you enable HTTP and HTTPS access, and set the session timeout, respectively:

  • Enable HTTP Access - if selected, configure HTTP access with the following field:
    • HTTP Port - the port on which to connect to the MapR Control System via HTTP
  • Enable HTTPS Access - if selected, configure HTTPS access with the following fields:
    • HTTPS Port - the port on which to connect to the MapR Control System via HTTPS
    • HTTPS Keystore Path - a path to the HTTPS keystore
    • HTTPS Keystore Password - a password to access the HTTPS keystore
    • HTTPS Key Password - a password to access the HTTPS key
  • Session Timeout - the number of seconds before an idle session times out.

Buttons:

  • OK - saves the settings
  • Cancel - exits without saving the settings
