Setting the AccessSSLFlags IIS property

Hi there, I need to set a directory in IIS such that "Require secure channel (SSL)" is enabled. Based on this thread:

http://community.flexerasoftware.com/showthread.php?t=168377&highlight=%22require+ssl%22

I believe it's the AccessSSLFlags metabase property, which in doing some other googling I thought was something I should be able to set in 2010. (It's mentioned as being available in earlier versions of the product.) However, I don't see it in the "Other IIS Properties" window and, short of running a script (like described here http://community.flexerasoftware.com/showthread.php?t=156511) I'm not sure how to enable this flag.

Suggestions? Why isn't that property showing up in the "Other" window?

Re: Setting the AccessSSLFlags IIS property

Hi,
I believe you have to use the ISIISProperty to customise the metabase properties for a particualr IIS virtual directory/application.

It is a little tricky, unless someone else know a better way, this is the way i set the MimeMap- MimeTypes and http custom headers.

Re: Setting the AccessSSLFlags IIS property

The AccessSSLFlags property is available for a Web site (not for a virtual directory or application). In the IIS view, select the Web site, and in the Other IIS Properties setting, click the ellipsis button. The Other IIS Properties dialog box opens. The AccessSSLFlags property is the first one listed.

I hope that helps.

Re: Setting the AccessSSLFlags IIS property

Thanks Debbie, but I don't want to set it on an entire website, I just want it on a particular directory. That's possible in IIS. Any reason why it's not possible here?

Re: Setting the AccessSSLFlags IIS property

Did you try simply creating a record in the ISIISProperty table? Easiest way is to set one the available properties in the IIS view so a record is created for the directory you want then switch to the DirectEditor and change the MetaDataProp value to the AccessSSLFlags one (6030 ?); also set MetaDataValue.

I would love this info also

I've asked to do a setup for a project where 2 of 4 virtual directories need a secure channel. This topic is very light on documentation like so many things. Sofar I have only found an entry to specify a certificate.
