How to set up your InterMine webapp to use https

You will need to use a CDN delivering https content. For example,

Set the corresponding entry in '', for example:

head.cdn.location =

You can also override this property by setting it directly in file.

Note If you are moving your existing mine to https, please take care of also updating the following properties in the same file:

  • project.sitePrefix
  • webapp.deploy.url
  • webapp.baseurl

If you are using your own jbrowse server, this will now need to be served through https as well, and you will need to also adjust the property:

  • jbrowse.install.url

Tomcat requirements#

You should add a configuration to your tomcat server.xml in the Engine section, specifying the address of your proxy like so:

<Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteIpValve"
protocolHeader="x-forwarded-proto" />

It is also good practice to limit access to tomcat port to only the host's loopback address (localhost). This is done like so:

<Connector port="8080" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
redirectPort="8443" />
