Since there is no documentation on setting up SSL for the visualizer, here are high level steps that you need to take:


  1. (For all application servers) Update the
    1. %nxroot%\bopcfg\www\CATALINA_BASE_VIZ\webapps\CMDBVisualizer\WEB-INF\classes\com\ca\cmdbvisualizer\config
    2. update USD_WEBSERVICE_URL to point to the WSDL on the encrypted port you have set up for SDM tomcat
  2. (For all application servers) Update the CACERT file to make the certificate you are using for the ssl connector in Tomcat as a trusted source
    1. This is in the %JRE%\lib\security folder
    2. This file can be copied between servers
  3. (For all application servers) add an SSL connector to the server.xml for the visualizer tomcat
    1. %nxroot%\bopcfg\www\CATALINA_BASE_VIZ\conf\
  4. (For all application servers) update the Nx.env to point to the encrypted connecter for the visaulizer
  5. Restart SDM services


If you only want to have SDM encrypted, then follow the first 2 steps.
