For additional protection, you should enable Tomcat to check for allowed referrer.

Procedure

  1. Edit the <TDC_HOME>\TalendDataCatalog\tomcat\conf\web.xml file.
  2. Uncomment the two filter sections in the Checks referer is allowed section.
    The variable ${server.fqdn} is substituted with the value of M_SERVER_FQDN in tomcat.properties.
  3. Add as many init-param sections as needed to allow reference from other URLs.
  4. Edit <TDC_HOME>\TalendDataCatalog\tomcat\conf\tomcat.properties by changing the M_SERVER_FQDN variable from localhost to <myMMServer.myDomain>.
