Configuring the Gateway to Use HTTPS

You can configure the gateway to use HTTPS to upload bundles to Hortonworks by using the connectivity and configuration details available in this article: https://hortonworks.secure.force.com/articles/en_US/How_To/Uploading-SmartSense-Bundles (To view this article, you need a valid Hortonworks support account).

To use an authenticated HTTP or HTTPS proxy to upload bundles to Hortonworks, follow these steps:

[Note]Note

If you would like to set up HTTPS proxy, you must contact Hortonworks Support.

  1. On the SmartSense Gateway host, edit the /etc/hst/conf/gateway/hst-gateway.ini file and supply the appropriate values for your environment:

    ; All proxy configurations are applicable only for HTTPS provider type
    ; set to true to set up a proxy between gateway and SmartSense environment
    ;default:false
    provider.https.proxy.enabled=true
    ; fully qualified proxy hostname
    provider.https.proxy.hostname=your.proxy.host
    ; proxy port that will be used by gateway for outbound access
    provider.https.proxy.port=3128
    ; supported proxy types : HTTP / HTTPS [default:HTTP]
    provider.https.proxy.type=HTTP
    ; supported proxy authentication  types : NONE / BASIC / DIGEST [default:NONE]
    provider.https.proxy.auth.type=BASIC
    ; proxy username for identified auth.type
    provider.https.proxy.auth.username=proxyuser
    ; proxy password for identified auth.type
    provider.https.proxy.auth.password=proxypassword
    ; [optional] any additional proxy setup parameters
    ; use "|" to separate multiple parameters
    ; for example: digest requires setting parameters such as
    ; realm=default|nonce=12GHtqeZA!7Ke43
    provider.https.proxy.auth.parameters=
  2. After you update the configuration file, restart the SmartSense Gateway:
