Security attribute values for anonymous user

Display URL Prefix

HTTP host information to prefix the partial URL specified in the access URL of the documents in XML feeds to form the complete URL. This complete URL is the display URL of the document when the document link in the Oracle SES search results page is clicked.

This value must form a valid URL when concatenated with the access URL element of an item in the data feed. Be careful to avoid having either two slashes or none when the values are combined. Thus, enter a trailing slash (/) if the access URLs do not begin with a slash, or omit the trailing slash from the prefix if the access URLs begin with a slash.
