Environment

Access Manager 4.3

Situation

Access Manager 4.3 setup and working well. Administrator wants to add the Analytic Server to existing setup to gather reports all stats.
Corporate best practice in place to replace ANM default self signed certificates with commercial certificates. When the Analytics connector certificate is replaces, the admin receive security warnings in the browser when loading the dashboard because it is called via the IP address.
They would like the ability to change the loading behavior of the dashboard so it can use the DNS name instead of IP address so the security error in the browser will not occur but option not available as UI rejects anything that is not an IP address.

Resolution

Fixed in NAM 4.4.
