How do I change context path from ROOT

Oliver Wood shared this question 8 months ago
Completed

I previously installed 9.4.1 and followed instructions below

https://community.yellowfinbi.com/knowledge-base/article/how-do-i-change-the-default-root-url-path-for-yellowfin

This all worked.

Colleague recently installed 9.8.1.3 and the instructions above no longer seem to create the new webapp context

Hello Oliver,

I'm writing to let you know that I've noticed that the "path" attribute in ROOT does not exist in 9.8.1.3. When I copied the path attribute from the 9.4.1 version to the 9.8.1.3 version, and followed all the steps as given in this link https://community.yellowfinbi.com/knowledge-base/article/how-do-i-change-the-default-root-url-path-for-yellowfin, it worked as expected. It was successful for me.

The following is the syntax you can change in your ROOT(Yellowfin/appserver/conf/Catalina/localhost/ROOT.xml) and let me know how it goes for you

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Context docBase="C:\Users\sharwari.inkane\Yellowfin 9.8.1.3 full/yellowfin.war" path="DAVE"
privileged="false" reloadable="false" swallowOutput="false" useNaming="true"
xmlValidation="false" xmlNamespaceAware="false" xmlBlockExternal="false">
<Manager className="org.apache.catalina.session.PersistentManager" distributable="false" saveOnRestart="false">
<Store className="org.apache.catalina.session.FileStore" />
</Manager>
</Context>
