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, baseurl.sisense.com/reporting.

The result is that if your users would be accessing the Pulse page for example, instead of the default baseurl.sisense.com/pulse, they would see the URL baseurl.sisense.com/reporting/pulse.

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.
