Solution Verified - Updated -


  • How do I suppress or change Server header and X-Powered-By response header returned by JBoss EAP 7.x? The following HTTP headers Server and X-Powered-By returned by EAP 7 and reveal detailed information about the software:

        HTTP/1.1 200 OK
        X-Powered-By: Undertow/1
        Server: JBoss-EAP/7

    and the following will be returned when you access JSP page:

        HTTP/1.1 200 OK
        X-Powered-By: Undertow/1
        X-Powered-By: JSP/2.3
        Server: JBoss-EAP/7
  • How can we remove or change the Server and X-Powered-By headers?

  • I specified the system property org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Protocol.SERVER to modify Server response header in EAP 6. What is the equivalent configuration in EAP 7?
