After applying the latest service pack (SP1) to your FlexNet Manager for Engineering Applications 2022 R1 install, you may be redirected to a URL using HTTPS when trying to access the web interface. Once you’ve installed Service Pack 1, a redirect variable in one of the configuration files automatically redirects to HTTPS. The site will be blocked as untrusted if you do not have HTTPS/SSL configured.

To remove the automatic redirect to HTTPS, follow these steps on both the Admin server and Reporting server.

  1. Navigate to the following directories and locate a file named standalone-full.xml.template.

<Install Directory>\FLEXnet\manager\admin\patches\installed\jboss\config\

<Install Directory>\reporting\patches\installed\jboss\config\

  1. Open the file in an editor such as Windows Notepad. Search for the following lines and remove them, then save the file.

On line 612: <filter-ref name="http-to-https" predicate="equals(%p,@{flexnet.port}@)"/>

On line 629:  <rewrite name="http-to-https" target="https://@{}@:@{https.port}@%U" redirect="true"/>

  1. Open a Command Prompt/Windows Terminal window as an administrator. Go to the install directory and run the command: flexnet site make.

<Install Directory>\FLEXnet\manager\admin\

<Install Directory\FLEXnet\manager\reporting\

  1. Start the Admin and Reporting services. You should now be able to access the web interface using HTTP.
