SSAS - Configuring a secure HTTPS connection

Overview

All data that is sent by HTTP is not encrypted and can be inspected. For this reason we added an option to enable HTTPS for the Accelerator. HTTPS encrypts all data that is sent from the client to the Accelerator and vice versa. Follow these steps to configure a secure HTTPS connection for your setup.

Requirements

  • Flexmonster Pivot version 2.206 or higher
  • Microsoft Analysis Services installed and configured
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4 or higher
  • A valid and trusted SSL certificate

Step 1: Register the server certificate

On an elevated console (“Run as administrator”), register the server certificate by running this command:

netsh http add sslcert ipport=0.0.0.0:<port> certhash=<hash> appid=<app-guid>

Where:

  • <port> – the listening port (50005 by default). The IP address 0.0.0.0 matches any IP address for the local machine. Ensure that the port you specify in the <port> parameter is not being used by other servers. Remember to set the same port as the PORT parameter in flexmonster.config.
  • <hash> – your certificate file has its own SHA-1 hash, represented in hexadecimal. Verify that the <hash> you specify in this command matches the hash of your certificate file for the URL.
  • <app-guid> – specify a random GUID (formatted like this '{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}'), used to identify the owning application. Use single quotes and curly braces ('{}') in the appid parameter like this:
    netsh http add sslcert ipport=0.0.0.0:443 certhash=XXX appid='{YYY}'
    

If any errors occur, verify that the SSL certificate is properly installed in the personal store and has an assigned private key. To see all installed SSL certificates, use this command:

netsh http show sslcert

Step 2: Enable HTTPS in Flexmonster Accelerator

After you have registered the certificate, enable HTTPS in the Accelerator’s config. Open flexmonster.config and modify/add the HTTPS parameter:

HTTPS=true

Available values for the HTTPS parameter are true or false. By default HTTPS is disabled (false).

Flexmonster Accelerator is now ready to be launched. Just run flexmonster-proxy-ssas.exe with administrator privileges.

You can check if the Accelerator is up and running by navigating to its URL in the browser (https://localhost:50005 by default).

Step 3: Configure Flexmonster Pivot

Now it’s time to configure the client – Flexmonster Pivot Table & Charts. Let’s create a minimal configuration using the JavaScript API (replace proxyUrl, catalog, and cube parameters with your specific values):

var pivot = new Flexmonster({
	container: "pivotContainer",
	toolbar: true, 
	report: {
		dataSource: {
			dataSourceType: "microsoft analysis services",
			proxyUrl: "https://localhost:50005",
			catalog: "Adventure Works DW Standard Edition",
			cube: "Adventure Works",
			binary: true
		}
	},
	licenseKey: "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX"
});

Note that proxyUrl now uses https://. That means that the data is protected and encrypted with your SSL certificate.
