How to set up WMS Facade with Authorization Bridge for HTTPS

by Technical Evangelist on ‎02-12-2020 06:21 AM (75 Views)


I have set up working WMS Facade service that uses Authorization Bridge for user management and spatial restrictions. After switching to HTTPS the services don't work. How can I make them work using HTTPS protocol?



First of all, please check the following KB article on how to configure the Authorization Bridge (and Security Console) for HTTPS access.

Services modification

  1. Modify the WMS web.config for HTTPS access following the documentation here (help topic HTTPS Configuration for GeoMedia WebMap services).
  2. In addititon to above, change the WSHttpBinding_IAuthorize binding. This one is used for communication between WMS Facade service and Authorization Bridge service:
        <binding name="WSHttpBinding_IAuthorize" ...>
            <readerQuotas ... />
            <reliableSession ... />
            <security mode="Transport">
  3. Test the WMS Facade service with GetCapabilities request and try to log in as a user defined in Security Console. If you see the GetCapabilities document, the service should work properly.
