How do I set up EBSCOhost in my III WAM forward table?

Last Updated: October 17th, 2018

Option #1: Proxy the entire session (Preferred Method)
Please add the following entries to your WAM forward table:

*.ebsco.zone
*.ebscohost.com
*.ebsco.com
*.ebsco-content.com

Note: Please leave the “Database Identifier” field empty in the forward table for your entries.

Option #2: Proxy only the authentication servers (Alternative Method)
Use this method if you experience issues using the Preferred Method described above. This alternative method requires more maintenance because any time you add a link, widget, or branding in EBSCOadmin, you'll need to make sure the proxy is included.

Remove all existing ebsco entries and add only the following entries to your WAM forward table:

search.ebscohost.com (EBSCOhost & EDS)
openurl.ebscohost.com (OpenURL Server)
m.ebscohost.com (mobile)
ejournals.ebsco.com (EJS SmartLinking)
resolver.ebscohost.com (Full Text Finder)

Notes:

  • Please leave the “Database Identifier” field empty in the forward table for your entries.
  • Do not add http or https to the Host URLs.
  • Do not use a wildcard.
  • You will also need an SSL Certificate.
  • Make sure that your III WAM Proxy prefix is included in EBSCOadmin for CustomLinks, widgets, and branding when applicable.
