Changing the Host Name and Context Path of Web UI Applications

When you start any web application of the WSO2 Streaming Integrator (i.e., Streaming Integrator Tooling, the Template Editor, Business Rules, or Policies) the URL to access its user interface is displayed in the start up logs as follows.

INFO {org.wso2.carbon.siddhi.editor.core.internal.StartupComponent} - Editor Started on : http://<IP_ADDRESS>:<PORT>/<WEB_UI_APPLICATION_NAME>
e.g., The URL to access the Streaming Integrator Tooling is logged as follows:

INFO {org.wso2.carbon.siddhi.editor.core.internal.StartupComponent} - Editor Started on : http://<IP_ADDRESS>:9390/editor

You can change this URL to display a host name instead of the IP address. You can also change it to display a different name for the web UI application (in the given example, a name different to editor). To do the required configurations to make this change, see the topics below.

Changing the IP address to a host name

To change the IP address displayed in the URL to a host name:

  1. Open the <SI_TOOLING_HOME>/CONF/server/deployment.yaml file.

  2. In the wso2.transport.http:listenerConfigurations: section, change the value for the host parameter to the required hostname (e.g., to streaming-integrator) as shown below.


    Note that in this example, you are specifying a host name for the http URLs. If the web UI application you are accessing has an https URL, you need to make this change for the listener configuration with the https scheme.

               id: "default"
               host: "streaming-integrator"
               port: 9387

Once you change the host to streaming-integrator as shown in the above example, the http URLs to access the Streaming Integrator Tooling and the Template Editor display streaming-integrator as the host name.

e.g., the URL to access the Streaming Integrator Tooling is displayed as follows:

    INFO {org.wso2.carbon.siddhi.editor.core.internal.StartupComponent} - Editor Started on : http://streaming-integrator:9390/editor

Changing the web UI application name

To change the name of the web UI application that appears in its URL, add a section as follows in the <SI_TOOLING_HOME>/CONF/server/deployment.yaml file.

 # configurations for the Editor app "editor": 
    contextPath: "/tooling"
Here, the context path for the editor webUI application (i.e., the Streaming Integrator Studio) is specified as tooling. Therefore, when you start the Streaming Integrator Tooling server, the URL for the Streaming Integrator Tooling appears as follows.

INFO {org.wso2.carbon.siddhi.editor.core.internal.StartupComponent} - Editor Started on : http://<IP_ADDRESS>:9390/tooling
