Issue/Introduction

By default, when CCA Server is installed, it listens on port 8080 on HTTP.

How to enable HTTPS on CCA Server and change the port it listens on

Environment

Release:
Component: CAACM

Resolution

The first thing to do is to enable HTTPS on the CCA Server by creating the Certificates.  This part of the documentation describes how:
https://docops.ca.com/ca-configuration-automation/12-8-5/en/administrating/administer-the-application/configuration-settings/create-and-manage-security-certificates/configure-the-application-for-ssl-security/enable-https 

Once that is configured, CCA Server will listen on port 8080, but now with HTTPS.  If you attempt to go to port 8080 with HTTP, you will receive a plain blank white screen

Optionally, to change the port CCA Server listens on:
  1. Navigate to the CCA Server install directory
  2. Proceed into tomcat / conf folder
  3. Backup server.xml file
  4. Open server.xml file for modification
  5. Find:
    <Connector port="

    Note: There can be a few different entries, find the one without the line being commentted out, as indicated by <~-- in the beginning of the statement
    Note: If you cannot find the above syntax, then search for <Connector by itself, this will present more findings, just continue to locate one uncommented out and that contains port somewhere in the xml tag
  6. Modify the port="8080" to "8443" or whatever port of your choosing
  7. Save and Close the file
  8. Restart CCA Service
