Multi-tenancy with https

Hi,
The tenant, does not want to work with https.
Have you seen the error below?

Re: Multi-tenancy with https

You have not correctly configured the CSRF filter parameters in alfresco-global.properties. It looks though since you have already modified the csrf.filter.referer and csrf.filter.origin values to use your domain name, but you have not accounted for the http vs https difference on your reverse proxy. Since those two properties technically hold regular expressions, you should be able to work with the following values

csrf.filter.referer=^https?://app\.processoverde\.com\.br(?:$|/.+$)
csrf.filter.origin=^https?://app\.processoverde\.com\.br(?:$|/.+$)

Re: Multi-tenancy with https

Hi afaust Master,
I added the parameters in the global properties.

The same error occurred:

Re: Multi-tenancy with https

It does not look like your configuration took effect - at least the error messages do not show that the configuration values I provided are being used.

Re: Multi-tenancy with https

Hi afaust,
I left the alfresco service.
Anything else that needs to be done?

Thanks a lot!
