If your Stardust web application is deployed on Websphere (6.1) (with HTTP/HTTPS default ports as 9080/9443) and has the network configuration as described below, BIRT reports rendered by the Business Control Center (BCC) in the portal may not display properly.
Client ---->HTTPS----->F5 LB----->HTTP------->WS Web Server
There is a VIP assigned to the default HTTPS (443) port and the client initiates a request on this port. Only an SSL profile is associated with this VIP. The F5 has a redirect rule that forwards all requests coming to this VIP over HTTP to the default HTTP (9080) port of the WS web server.
The following entry need to be added to the BIRT viewer.properties file (see following post) and this file needs to be present in the WEB-INF of the web-app. base_url=https://xxxx.pqr.com (replace URL as appropriate and add the HTTPS port if the VIP is not tied to port 443). This setting ensures that the subsequent requests initiated by the browser also go over HTTPS and use the above VIP for request forwarding.
