Administering Ambari Views
Also available as:

Running standalone Ambari Views servers behind a reverse proxy

If you require many users to access Ambari views, you should install and run multiple standalone Ambari Server instances behind a reverse proxy.

In this case, the reverse proxy must honor session affinity, meaning that after a session is established, the reverse proxy routes each subsequent request to the same Ambari server instance. Depending on the reverse proxy implementation, you can achieve session affinity in several different ways, including hashing client IP and using the JSESSIONID header.


Using a reverse proxy is supported only for standalone Ambari Server instances.

Using multiple, operational Ambari Sever instances behind a reverse proxy is not supported.
