This article describes how to enable the AJP Connector in Smart ID Identity Manager.


In this article, <SMARTIDHOME> refers to /home/nexus, but this can be different depending on the setup.

The Apache JServ Protocol (AJP) can be used via the AJP connector, see Apache Tomcat 9 Configuration Reference (9.0.40) - The AJP Connector.

  1. Enable the AJP connector:
    1. Open this file for editing: <SMARTIDHOME>/docker/compose/identitymanager/config/tomcat-server.xml
      The changes will affect Identity Manager operator, admin, and tenant.
    2. Enable the AJP Connector by removing the comments <!-- and – > and make the necessary settings to fit the AJP.

          <!-- <Connector protocol="AJP/1.3"
                     redirectPort="8443" /> -->
         <!-- You should set jvmRoute to support load-balancing via AJP ie :
         <Engine name="Catalina" defaultHost="localhost" jvmRoute="jvm1">
  2. For each container where the AJP Connector shall be used (operator, admin, and tenant), enable the port mapping: 
    1. Open this file for editing: <SMARTIDHOME>/docker/compose/identitymanager/<admin|operator|tenant>/docker-compose.yml.
    2. Enable port mapping by removing "#". If you want to use another external port for IDM, change IDM_OPERATOR_PORT_AJP in <SMARTIDHOME>/docker/compose/smartid.env.

      # - "${IDM_OPERATOR_PORT_AJP}:8009"
