Enable HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS)

When both TLS/SSL and this property (Enable HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS)) are enabled, Cloudera Data Science Workbench will inform your browser that it should never load the site using HTTP.

All attempts to access Cloudera Data Science Workbench using HTTP will automatically be converted to HTTPS.

This property is disabled by default .

If you ever need to downgrade to back to HTTP, use the following sequence of steps: First, deactivate this checkbox to disable HSTS and restart Cloudera Data Science Workbench. Then, load the Cloudera Data Science Workbench web application in each browser to clear the respective browser's HSTS setting. Finally, disable TLS/SSL across the cluster. Following this sequence should help avoid a situation where users get locked out of their accounts due to browser caching.
