HTTP Content Manager (HCM)

HTTP Content Management (HCM) is an application used for inspecting the HTTP traffic transmitted through port 80 (default) or any other port you use to transmit HTTP traffic. HCM can be installed on an MX Series router that is running the corresponding version of the Junos OS release. HCM inspects HTTP traffic even if the default port 80 is not used for HTTP traffic and is interoperable with ms, vms, and ams interface types. It supports fragmented HTTP request packets and GET, PUT, and POST requests.

Support added in Junos OS Release 20.2R1 for only the insertion of IPv4 or IPv6 tags user addresses in an HTTP headers. No other tags are supported in this release for Next Gen Services.

Configuring the HTTP-Manager Package on the Router

  1. Before you install the HTTP-Manager package on the router, ensure that you have the appropriate version of the HTTP-Manager package for the Junos OS image you are using on the router. When you have confirmed that you have the right package, use the request system software add command to install the HTTP-Manager package. You have to restart the CLI after the package is installed.

  2. When the CLI has restarted, use the show version command to see whether the HTTP-Manager packages are installed.

  3. If you want to upgrade the Junos OS image on a router that has the HTTP-Manager package installed, you should first save and then delete the HTTP-Manager configuration from the router.

    • To view the HTTP-Manager configuration, use the user@router>extension juniper-http-manager show <section> command.

    • To delete the HTTP-Manager configuration from the router, use the user@router>extension juniper-http-manager delete <section> command.

    • Any remnant HTTP-Manager configuration left on the router will be deleted when the Junos OS image is upgraded. So, ensure that you have saved all necessary HTTP Content Management configurations.

    • To delete the HTTP-Manager package from the router, use the user@router> request system software delete <http-manager-package> command.

    • Reinstall the HTTP-Manager package on the router after you upgrade the Junos OS image on the router.
