Introduction:
The true IP address of a client machine is often only available via a http header property like X-Forwarded-For, X-Real-IP, X-Client-IP etc.
How can the on-premise CA AXA Collector be configured to process an http header for the client IP?
Environment:
CA AXA on-premise
Instructions:
The file .../AxC/conf/dxc.properties has property "client.ip.http.headers" which can be enabled and a comma separated list of headers to check can be added.
Comments from that file:
# list of custom headers where client IP may be present. This list should be sorted by
# priority and DxC will pick up client IP from first header found in the http request.
#client.ip.http.headers=


NOTEThis functionality is only fully available with reporting in the newly released CA AXA 17.3.2
