HTTPS for SMP (REST api calls) support + documentation with standard apache

IRIS (and Cache) were always shipped with standalone (with a very simple configuration) apache web server for non-production use (SMP, develop REST API calls etc.). This apache web server supports (out of the box) only HTTP.

Large organizations usually have more than one non-production environments (CI, TEST, UAT, PREPROD and so on...) and there is a need to have the SMP (or REST API calls) using HTTPS.

In order to do so, there is a need to a lot of actions:

  • create a self-singed certificates

  • configure the httpd-local.conf with those certificates, listening ports, default directories, file types and more.

As IRIS comes with OpenSLL, it should not difficult to automatically create & install those self-signed certificates, configure basic httpd-local.conf to support HTTPS etc. (all this can be done during the IRIS installation).

Also, to have a good documentation on how to do all those steps in order to enable system admins to have HTTPS supported.
