HTTPS server configuration properties

For each runtime environment that uses the File Integration Service, you can configure an HTTPS server to exchange files with remote HTTPS servers.
You configure HTTPS server properties on the HTTPS Server tab of the File Server for agent page. You must have the HTTPS license to exchange files through HTTPS servers.
Configure the following types of properties:

General properties

The following table describes general HTTPS server properties:
Enable HTTPS Server
Whether to enable the HTTPS server.
When not enabled, the HTTPS server cannot receive files.
Default is disabled.
Port number for the HTTPS server.
Default is 15400.
Local Address
Local address of the HTTPS sever.
Enable SSL
Whether to use SSL encryption in communication with remote HTTPS servers.
Default is disabled.

SSL properties

The following table describes the SSL properties:
SSL Protocol
Whether to use the SSL or TLS protocol.
Select one of the following values:
  • - TLS. A new version of SSL, Transport Layer Security will be used to secure the transmission.
  • - SSL. A traditional Secure Socket Layer protocol is used to secure the transmission (default).
Enabled SSL Protocols
Specify the permissible TLS and SSL versions separated with a comma.
The supported versions are:
  • - TLS: TLSv1.1,TLSv1.2, and TLSv1.3
  • - SSL: SSLv2Hello and SSLv3
When a value is not specified, all the versions for the selected protocol are enabled.
Client Authentication
Whether the client must have a certificate to authenticate with the server.
Choose one of the following values:
  • - None. The SSL connection runs without checking certificates and the user is authenticated with a password. If any information being transmitted requires a certificate, the connection fails.
  • - Required. The SSL connection will not connect or authenticate a user unless a valid certificate is available.
  • - Optional. The SSL connection looks for a valid certificate, but continues with password authentication if a certificate is not present.
Key Store Location
Location of the key store that stores the private key and associated certificates. Client uses the key store file to authenticate communication with the File Integration Service.
Include path and file name.
Key Store Password
Password to access the key store.
Key Store Type
Type of the private key store.
Use one of the following values:
  • - JKS
  • - PKCS12
Key Alias
Key alias or certificate for the private key used to sign the MDN.
Trust Store Location
The path to the trust store file that the File Integration Service uses for HTTPS communication.
Trust Store Password
Password to access the trust store.
Trust Store Type
Type of trust store.
Use one of the following values:
  • - JKS
  • - PKCS12

Upload restrictions properties

You can specify the types of files to allow or deny in an HTTPS file upload.
The following table describes the properties that control upload restrictions:
File Extension Filter Type
Whether to accept or deny the extensions in the File Extensions list.
Use one of the following values:
  • - Do Not Filter. Accept all file types.
  • - Accept. Accept files with the extensions listed in the File Extensions property.
  • - Deny. Do not allow files with the extensions listed in the File Extensions property.
File Extensions
List of file extensions. Add the file extensions that correspond to the File Extension Filter Type. For example, to accept .csv and .txt files, in the File Extension Filter Type property, select Accept, and then add csv and txt to the list of file extensions.
To add an extension to the list, type the extension in the text box, and click Add.
To remove an extension from the list, highlight the extension, and click Delete.
File Extension Case Sensitive
Whether to factor case when you filter using the file extensions list. When enabled, files with extensions that do not match the case used in the File Extensions list cannot be uploaded.
For example, if the file extension list includes csv but not CSV, files with the extension of csv can be uploaded but files with the extension of CSV cannot be uploaded.
Allow Files with Extension
Whether to enable the file extension filter. When enabled, the file extension properties configured on this page determine which file types can be uploaded.
Default is enabled.
Allow Files with No Extension
Whether to allow files that do not include the extension in the file name.
Default is enabled.
Allow Files with No Name
Whether to allow files without a name. The Secure Agent saves files without a name using the following format: as2data_<datetime> where datetime is the current time stamp including milliseconds.
Default is disabled.
Max Upload Size(MB)
The file size limit in megabytes for the HTTPS server upload.
Default is 5 MB.
