With the SSL support configuration, an MDM server can respond to both HTTP and HTTPS requests.

To ensure the security of communication with the MDM server, you can configure the MDM server to respond to HTTPS requests only by modifying the web.xml file under the <TomcatPath>/webapps/talendmdm/WEB-INF directory.

Open the web.xml file, and then uncomment the following text:

    <!-- Uncomment the following to configure webapp to always require HTTPS -->
    <security-constraint>
        <web-resource-collection>
            <web-resource-name>HTTPSOnly</web-resource-name>
            <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>
        </web-resource-collection>
        <user-data-constraint>
            <transport-guarantee>CONFIDENTIAL</transport-guarantee>
        </user-data-constraint>
    </security-constraint>

After such configuration, if you enter a URL starting with http in your browser, you will be redirected to the secure URL starting with https automatically.
