How to configure the Web Server to use SSL/HTTPS for using with Kofax Analytics?

Summary

12315

To be able to use HTTPS protocol to login to Viewer, check the following requirements:

  1. During the Kofax Web Agent installation have "HTTPS" as protocol in Connectivity tab
  2. If the SSL certificate associated uses Server Name that is not localhost, change in each web.config file of all web modules (View/Viewer/Designer/InsightService/etc.) the IP 127.0.0.1 values to the DNS name desired.

Important Note: exe.config files for Studio, Scheduler Service, BridgeService have to be modified too
