Remove /irj/ from Portal URL link permanently!

Hi experts,

yes i know....this topic looks very familary to most of you. Even you might think this is very basic ...but i must confes i didn't find any thing which exactly fits my problem. I am sure for you experts it is a very easy question, so please could you also give me an answer ? This would be great...

I am searching for a solution at the sdn as well at the visual admin and config tool for quite a long time (serval days) but without the glory success...

My system looks like this: We are using an Enterprise Portal 7.0 with SP 14 (quite up to date )

Okay here is my "easy" question:

Of course as you know the standard portal URL is something like this

http://<host>:50000/irj/portal

GOAL: Now i want to remove the "IRJ" part from this URL.

I already figured out, how i can modify the Ports at the portal

->visual admin -> http provider ->ports

and i found out how to add aliases for the gateway..

-> visual admin -> Web Container -> irj OR the web.xml file at the ...\examples\root folder

so that my URL looks like this now :

http://myportal/irj/mybusiness BUT i couldn't remove the irj part.

So if you ask me how should the Url look like i would answer :

i love to have the url like this: http://myportal/mybusiness

How can i do this? Or even just http://myportal

I don't want to see the irj part at any time at the browser address!

So my requirement is to provide an Url without the "irj/" part ... and without using an extra web dispatcher or reserve proxy. I just want to make this, if possible, the easiest way (most SAP standard) as possible...

I also investigated at the topic "virtual host" but this doesn't seem to solve my problem ...or?

I think basically i will need an alias for the application "irj" , what do you think?

Can anybody give me thie final hint? Or even a short descripton how to solve this?

Any help is more than welcome!!!

Of course i will reward points... so any help out there?

Beste regards

Your Stefan

I'm trying to accomplish the same using web dispatcher. How do you configure web dispatcher to rewrite the URL?

Hi Sandeep Tudumu,

thanks for this very QUICK answer

But i have checked these links already before. The problem at both entries are the follwoing:

Altough you remove the /irj/ part from the initial portal call, the irj will be dispalyed when the user is logged into the portal at the adress bar.

My requirement is that the user NEVER ever will see the /irj/

The background is like this: i think it can be very risky if every one can recognize that we are using an SAP Portal, just by looking at the URL, or what you think?

Hope it getting cleare what i mean , or?

Kind regards

Stefan

You can put a sapwebdispatcher in front of the portal so users will connect with that using the URL you provided. The /irj is then rewritten by the webdispatcher. You can achieve the same using an Apache as reverse proxy.
