Chapter 11. Configuring Smart Router for TLS support

You can configure Smart Router (KIE Server Router) for TLS support to allow HTTPS traffic.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  • To start Smart Router with TLS support and HTTPS enabled, use the TLS keystore properties, for example:

    java  -Dorg.kie.server.router.tls.keystore = <KEYSTORE_PATH>
          -Dorg.kie.server.router.tls.keystore.password = <KEYSTORE_PWD>
          -Dorg.kie.server.router.tls.keystore.keyalias = <KEYSTORE_ALIAS>
          -Dorg.kie.server.router.tls.port = <HTTPS_PORT>
          -jar rhpam-7.7-smart-router.jar

    org.kie.server.router.tls.port is a property used to configure the HTTPS port. The default HTTPS port value is 9443.

Note

You must create the container directly against the kie-server. For example:

$ curl -v -X POST -H 'Content-type: application/xml' -H 'X-KIE-Content-Type: xstream' -d @create-container.xml -u ${KIE_CRED} http://${KIE-SERVER-HOST}:${KIE-SERVER-PORT}/kie-server/services/rest/server/config/
$ cat create-container.xml
<script>
  <create-container>
    <container container-id="example:timer-test:1.1">
      <release-id>
        <group-id>example</group-id>
        <artifact-id>timer-test</artifact-id>
        <version>1.1</version>
      </release-id>
      <config-items>
        <itemName>RuntimeStrategy</itemName>
        <itemValue>PER_PROCESS_INSTANCE</itemValue>
        <itemType></itemType>
      </config-items>
    </container>
  </create-container>
</script>

A message about the deployed container is displayed in the smart-router console. For example:

INFO: Added http://localhost:8180/kie-server/services/rest/server as server location for container example:timer-test:1.1

To display a list of containers, enter the following command:

$ curl http://localhost:9000/mgmt/list

The list of containers is displayed:

{
  "containerInfo": [{
    "alias": "timer-test",
    "containerId": "example:timer-test:1.1",
    "releaseId": "example:timer-test:1.1"
  }],
  "containers": [
    {"example:timer-test:1.1": ["http://localhost:8180/kie-server/services/rest/server"]},
    {"timer-test": ["http://localhost:8180/kie-server/services/rest/server"]}
  ],
  "servers": [
    {"kieserver2": []},
    {"kieserver1": ["http://localhost:8180/kie-server/services/rest/server"]}
  ]
}

To initiate a process using the Smart Router URL, enter the following command:

$ curl -s -X POST -H 'Content-type: application/json' -H 'X-KIE-Content-Type: json' -d '{"timerDuration":"9s"}' -u kieserver:kieserver1! http://localhost:9000/containers/example:timer-test:1.1/processes/timer-test.TimerProcess/instances
