The Admin UI server of CA Single Sign-On is listening to http(8080) and https(8443) ports.

Is it possible to disable the http(8080) port?

It is preferable to enable secure access only.

It looks the removal of the following element in the adminui\standalone\configuration\standalone-full.xml file can disable the port 8080.

        <socket-binding name="http" port="8080"/>


Release : 12.8.x



No. Listen port 8080 of WAMUI cannot be disabled by removing the '<socket-binding name="http" port="8080"/>' element in the 'adminui\standalone\configuration\standalone-full.xml' file.

The WAMUI behaves or designed  in such away if it is registered on SSL PORT at the the time of registration with Policy Server, if you access through non-SSL port i.e  8080 (example port) you will be redirect you to SSL port. The disable of non-SSL port will cause application deployment errors through startup hence non-ssl port is required and can not be disabled.

The access to http(8080) port is redirected to https(8443) port, so the secure access is enforced anyway.
