Configuring Base URLs

Base URLs are the consistent part of a web address for a site or web application. In Sisense, the default address is localhost:8081. Sisense allows you to specify a Sisense hostname as a subfolder of a domain, for example,

The result is that if your users would be accessing the Pulse page for example, instead of the default, they would see the URL

To implement base URLs in Sisense, you need to direct your users to a reverse proxy that is configured to redirect the users to the appropriate base URL that you define in Sisense.

The implementation of a reverse proxy is done on your side.

Implementing a base URL on Sisense’s side requires updating the default.yaml configuration file on your Sisense server.

To configure a new base URL in Sisense:

  1. In your browser, open the Configuration Manager located at http://localhost:3030.
  2. In Proxy URL, enter your base URL.
  3. Click Save to save your changes.
