F5 BigIP Load Balancer Appliance
In this environment, Discoverer 11g is deployed behind an F5 BigIP hardware load-balance which is configured use HTTPS/SSL for incoming URL's and SSL is terminated and HTTP sent back to the middle-tier.
The symptom / errors are that some of the Discoverer URL's for images and other static content are being returned with the HTTP protocol instead of HTTPs protocol. This causes broken links for external users that cannot access HTTP URLs.
The requirement is that all links returned by Discoverer 11g should return with the front-end load balancer host and as an HTTPs URL.
