  • For each additional Dashboard Service you want to configure access to, please add an uncommented configuration template (these are supplied in the context.xml file - ensure you chose the correct template for Tomcat 7 or Tomcat 8) for the target RDBMS/CSS2 underneath the section configured for your initial Dashboard Service
  • First change the name parameter to something other than "jdbc/domains/ADGAED" (the default "name" used in the pre-provided templates) - CAST recommends using the name of your target Dashboard Service - for example "jdbc/domains/V80_CENTRAL_CSS2" (you must retain the "jdbc/domains" part of the the name). This is because each Dashboard Service you connect to the CAST Application Engineering Dashboard must have a unique "name" parameter
  • Set the URL parameter to the server on which the additional Dashboard Service is located (usually you just need to alter the "localhost" to the name of the server on which the host RDBMS is located).
  • Then, depending on your target RDBMS/CSS2:
    • CSS2: Change [Dashboard Schema] to the name of the additional Dashboard Service schema (see Install CAST schemas).
    • Microsoft SQL Server/Oracle Server: Set the initConnectionSqls parameter to the name of the Dashboard Service {database} or {schema}
  • Ensure the username and password parameters for your target RDBMS/CSS2 are correct (note that if you need to encrypt the username and password to avoid entering names in clear text, please see: CAST-AAD-AED - Encrypt login and password for datasource and Active Directory)
  • Following any changes you make, save the context.xml file.
