How can I control the host and root of HTML Links in Saved Search result emails?

Communicator

We had some issues with the way the splunk web server handled our internally signed SSL certs so we setup nginx to handle the ssl and just proxy requests to the local splunk server. The problem is that the links still show port 8000 which means we click the link, remove the port, and then we get to the desired page (nginx does a URL rewrite to add the s to http).

Is there a way to drop the port number from the links that are generated without changing the port the web server runs on? Is there another way to accomplish this goal?

In the Splunk Manager->Email Alert Settings, http://localhost:8000/en-US/manager/launcher/configs/conf-alert_actions/email/?action=edit set the "Link hostname" value to the desired target URL.

Yep, that worked.

A useless side note: I thought it would have created the link host:80:8000 which apparently would have worked anyways (in FF, but not safari)

or i guess 80 if you're doing a redirect anyway?

what if you add an explicit port number, i.e., 443?

I was able to change the hostname, but the port number is still in the link.
