    Huh? That really makes no sense. Your iView simply "exposes" an application connected to some other system "connected" to your portal.....most often, via an "alias"....which is set up in system admin for the your "connection" is dictated there....NOT in the iView itself (unless doing some kind of direct URL iView).

    What is it you are ultimately trying to accomplish? Why is it you think you need to "change the IP address on iView"? Are you having issues with cross-domain access (ie. trying to access something "outside" the network)? Let us start there and then work towards the right way to do it.

    Every iview is connected to a system at the back end. Usually runs with DNS but instead of DNS the requirement is of IP address.

    I have been given a task to change the name of the iview and then in the second point I was asked to change the IP address and in brackets they wrote "this will be run by IP address and not DNS".

    • Chris is correct on all points. In the iView definition itself there is a property for "System" but this doesn't contain connection information directly, it refers to a system alias. In the system alias you setup the connector, ITS, and/or WebAS properties as appropriate with the application hostname information of the backend system. But, as Chris says, any change here will impact any and all iViews that use this same system alias, so if you aren't positive that this change is intended to be global, then you may need to create a new system alias and point your iView at that one instead.

      As for the DNS name vs IP address question, all I can say is "huh?" You can hardcode the IP address in the system alias, and it will work, but it's generally not a good idea. It would be better to ensure you have a good handle on your internal DNS configuration instead. This is not just for iViews but for everything used in the network. I can imagine a scenario where someone might mistakenly think this is somehow more secure or hack-proof, but that really shouldn't be the case.
