URL iViews


I am looking into calling a .asp file, which is kept in the portal server itself. To do so I am giving the fully qualified path of the URL as ''. As I want to take this .asp from one server to another I need to manullay treanfer the .asp file from server 1 to server2.

In porder to call the .asp in new server when I migrate iView from server1 to server2 the migrated iView is poinitng to old .asp. I need to manulay change the url iview to ''.

Is there any place where I can give the name of the server once and it will itself change with the servers.

Example :


and I can change this myserver value as with servers.

    Hi Vishal,

    you are on EP6? For these needs, use AppIntegrator instead of pure URL iView and define a system. That's exactly what you need.

    See application integrator in ep 6.0

    Hope it helps

    • Hi Pete,

      first, I think one thread is enough, they all reach me...


      > would the app integrator still be recommended

      Yes, it is the tool of your choice!

      > http://%variablename%/webcontent/benefits.asp"

      > where %variblename% would be

      > in sandbox,

      > in development and

      > in qa

      This is just the case for what systems are. You'll define the systems as described by yourself on the different stages by the same alias (on sandbox, the server name will be "" etc.) and then you'll use this alias within the AppIntegrator iView. This way, you can transport your content from one machine to another, everything working fine and differentiating on which systems they are on (systems in this case should never be transported).

      > but this goes beyond what seems to be a small task

      Using AppIntegrator definitely <i>is</i> a relatively small task!

      Give it a try, it's just doing what you want!

      Hope it helps
