    Posted 09-13-2017 02:52 PM

    We're using a Windows Terminal Server to run the Policy Manager client, and would like to share the policy templates that we have exported. Is there a way to change the location the Policy Manager looks for to load the templates from? By default it's %userprofile%\.l7tech\policy.templates

     

    I'm using CA API Gateway 9.1

     

    Thanks!

    I believe it's hard coded. But when you export/import, you can specify the folder you want.

    If you want a feature to change the default folder, you may create and Idea for it.

    There is a command line parameter that you can use that will specify the home directory where the Policy Manager will save things like Policy Templates and the ssg.properties file:

     

    -Duser.home="C:\Users\test\.l7tech2"

     

    Just change "C:\Users\test\.l7tech2" to a shared directory that all of your users will have access to. There is a batch file in the application directory that you could use to add this parameter and have everyone use this to start the Policy Manager. You could alternately add this parameter to the INI file in the application directory, which the .exe reads by default.

    Interesting, I found a file "Layer 7 Policy Manager.ini" under policy manager install folder, and add the flag -Duser.home="C:\temp". It works well.

    Thank you, Bill
