The port you use to host placement behind haproxy doesn't really matter. It doesn't have to even be a special port. It is perfectly fine to put it on port 80 or port 443 is there is nothing else running on the web server, or if a prefix (such as /placement) is being used.

What matters is what the haproxy exposes to the rest of the world and what is in the service catalog. Ideally the service in the catalog would not use non-standard HTTP ports but would instead either use prefixes or hostnames, e.g. things like:

  • https://cloud.example.com/placement
  • http://placement.cloud.example.com/
