DataStage® Release: 9x
Job Type: Parallel
OS: Unix
Noob WISD question...

Code:
http://servername:port/wisd-rest2/<application-name>/<OperationContext>


I have a few REST 2.0 services deployed and the API URL's contain the name of our DataStage server and port number in the address. Is there a way within InfoSphere WISD to alias Information Services Application to have a more meaningful or user friendly URL? Or is my only option to go through our network team to get a DNS alias created?

I'm working with a 3rd party application that will utilize these REST 2.0 API's and it seems unconventional to give them URL's that contain our server name and port number. What have others done to handle this?

Never had to do this. I'd suspect you will need to go through your network team, but whether the port number can be aliased (unless they set up a gateway) is a question I'm not qualified to address.

It might be worth noting that when you upgrade to version 11, all your services will use https by default. I am not sure you can do plain http on version 11. I have tried it and not been able to.

I wanted to mention it because then you enter the wacky world of security certificates. I am not sure if aliasing a DNS to your host name might generate certificate warnings to your consumers. I do not know enough to be sure but that question has been on my mind.

I haven't seen any situations where the server:port was altered...perhaps with a load balancer or other front end proxy? Indeed...need the network folks involved in that one.
