SSL inbound channel

Use this page to determine which SSL inbound channel options to specify for the application server. To view this console page:

  1. Click Servers > Server Types > WebSphere application servers > server_name.

  2. Under Container settings, click Web container settings > Web container transport chains > isecure_transport_chain.

  3. Under Transport channels, click SSL Inbound Channel (SSL_1).


Transport Channel Name

Name of the SSL inbound channel.

The name field cannot contain the following characters: # \ / , : ; " * ? < > | = + & % '

This name must be unique across all channels in an application server environment. For example, an SSL inbound channel and a TCP transport channel cannot have the same name if they reside within the same system.

Information Value
Data type String


Discrimination weight

Priority this channel has in relation to the other channels in this transport chain. This property is only used when port sharing is enabled and the transport chain includes multiple channels to which it might forward data. The channel in the chain with the lowest discrimination weight is the first one given the opportunity to look at incoming data and determine whether or not it owns that data.

Information Value
Data type Positive integer
Default 0


Centrally managed

The selection of an SSL configuration is based upon the outbound topology view for the Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) platform.

Centrally managed configurations support one location to maintain SSL configurations rather than spreading them across the configuration documents.

Information Value
Default: Enabled
