Introduction:
Without being sure what port was set for CA Performance Center to operate properly, how can it be determined in order to log in?

How can we also gain access to the CA Performance Center REST web services in the CA Performance Management environment?
Question:
Is the URL being used to connect to Performance Center correct?

What is the default URL used to access CA Performance Center?

What is the default URL used to access the REST web services for CA Performance Center?
Environment:
All supported CA Performance Management releases
Answer:
The proper URL using default ports for HTTP is:

http://pcHostname:8181

Alternative:

http://pcHostname:8181/pc/desktop/page



The proper URL using default ports for HTTPS is:

https://pcHostname:8182

Alternative:

​https://pcHostname:8182/pc/desktop/page
 

The proper URL for the REST web services is:

<protocol>://pcHostname:<port>/pc/center

For HTTP using default ports it would be:

http://pcHostname:8181/pc/center

For HTTPS using default ports it would be:

https://pcHostname:8182/pc/center
Additional Information:
Some environments choose to configure a port for HTTPS access that is not the recommended default of 8182. If this is the case:
A: Contact the administrator of the CA Performance Management system to determine the correct port to use.
B: Open a new case with the CA Support team for assistance validating the port required and it's functionality.

NOTE: The CA Performance Center REST web services require admin user log in. Use the default admin user and it's password to gain access when prompted.
