When creating ticket the $[Host Name] runtime parameter is used in ticket action but it sends the FQDN instead of the short name. How to send the short host name in ticket property?


CA Service Operations Insight - CA SOI 4.x


The default translation of the $[Host Name] runtime parameter uses the FQDN. You can change the translation to consistently return the short name.

Follow these steps:
1. Locate and open the following file on the SA Manager Server:
  •     \SOI\jsw\conf\soi-manager.conf
  •     Locate the section ""
  •    Each of these java additional parameter has a number at the end and those numbers are sequential.

2. Add the following parameter:

In the above example, the last additional parameter was 26, so we set this as 27. So, please check this config file and update accordingly

Note: The example assumes that the prior last additional java active parameter was parameter #10. Add parameters with the appropriate sequence number. If you don't add the correct sequence number then             the parameter won't work.

3. Save the file.

4. Restart the "CA SOI Application Server" service.
