Hello,

with ARIS 7.2 Publisher I had a "Get there faster" set up, replacing the usual <subdomain.hostname.tld/businesspublisher> with a short URL like (http://)process

An alias for the host was set in the company's DNS and Publisher configured to listen on the http port 80.

Following the Tomcat HowTo Wiki  I appended a <welcome-file-list> to the

BPServer\tomcat\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\web.xml

and copied 

BPServer\tomcat\webapps\businesspublisher\index.html to 
BPServer\tomcat\webapps\ROOT\index.html

So in the end the request (http://)process is resolved as <process.hostname.tld> and then redirected from

BPServer\tomcat\webapps\ROOT\index.html through to
BPServer\tomcat\webapps\businesspublisher\layouts\index.jsp

meaning: the user gets the Publisher login page.

 

Now, with Publisher 9.8.2 I am at a loss here, because I am no expert with tomcat or deploying webapps on it.

The relevant tomcat web.xml appears in

\ARIS9.8\server\bin\work\work_businesspublisher_s\base\conf\web.xml

but there is only businesspublisher and no ROOT in

\ARIS9.8\server\bin\work\work_businesspublisher_s\base\webapps\

where I could place the index.html.

I appreciate any guidance.

Regards, Martin
