Configuring Base URLs

  • Dark

Base URLs are the consistent part of a web address for a site or web application. In Sisense running on Linux, the default address is the IP of the Sisense web server running on port 30845, http://{IP of web server}:30845, or if SSL was implemented directly on the Sisense app, it is the configured application_dns_name running on port 443, https://{application_dns_name}. 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.

To configure a new base URL in Sisense:

  1. Open the System Configuration Manager:

    Select Admin > System Configuration > System Management and click Configuration.

  2. Expand the Web Server drop-down.

  3. In Proxy URL, enter your base URL. For example:

  4. Click Save to save your changes.


If you have set a base URL in a Linux environment that is accessed through SSH, you cannot access Grafana through the Admin page until you update the URL of Grafana in your Linux CLI with the following command:

kubectl -n sisense set env deploy/sisense-grafana GF_SERVER_ROOT_URL=<Enter your Base URL here>/app/grafana


If you use a reverse proxy with your Base URL in Sisense you may not be able to access some pages in Sisense. To work around this, add a double slash to the end of your URL with $1, for example:

location ~/reporting(/.*)$ {
  proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $remote_addr;

  proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
  proxy_set_header Host $host;
  proxy_http_version 1.1;
  proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
  proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";
