ctrl+J command to show database name

November 29, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

By default the ctrl+J command in any peoplesoft online page gives you the following details

Browser IE/6.0
Operating System WINNT
Browser Compression ON (gzip)
Tools Release 8.45.18
Application Release Financials/SCM
Service Pack 1
Component VNDR_ID

If you want to add the following more details to the above screen,

Database Name FIN88T
Database Type MICROSFT
Application Server //

Open the configuration.properties file on your webserver and set “connectionInformation=true” as shown below.

# If set to true, the database name and other potentially sensitive connection information
# will appear in the HTML generated for use in a help display.
# Default: false

Save the configuration.properties file and reboot your webserver. Now the ctrl+J command will show the userid, database name, database type and application server name.

From People Tools 8.48 onwards, we can do this online.

Go to  PeopleTools > Web profile > Web Profile > Web Profile Configuration

Choose apporpriate Profile Name like PROD for production. On Web Profile Configuration, click on Debugging tab, and then check radio button for ‘Show Connection & Sys Info’. Save the Page.
