Documentation issue with the Director UI

Latest response

In section 6.1 of the DIRECTOR INSTALLATION AND USAGE guide it states:

Users access the director’s web UI through SSL. For example, if the IP address of your undercloud is 192.168.24.1, then the address to access the UI is https://192.168.24.1.

But by default the director web UI runs on port 3000 so it'd be http://192.168.21.1:3000/

Hi Stephen,

You're right that the UI runs on port 3000. However, due to HAProxy, it forwards 443 to 3000. So 3000 acts as an internal port and 443 (or https) is a public secure port that forwards to 3000 internally.

While it is possible to enable the UI to use 3000 on a standard http connection, it's not supported. We highly recommend using https to access the UI.
