Issue/Introduction

Description:

ITAM administrators might want to define a default currency for Asset Portfolio Management.

Solution:

NOTE: you need to have at least Asset Portfolio Management 12.6.03 for this to work.

  1. Identify the value desired for entry "DefaultCurrencyType" (i.e. EUR).

    1. you can find the correct abbreviation in ITAM > Directory > List Management > Currency Type
  2. Provide the "DefaultCurrencyType" entry to the Application Server(s)

    1. Login to a machine where APM Application Server is installed.
    2. Open the Application Server's web.config in a text editor (i.e. notepad).

      1. By default this is "%PROGRAMFILES%\CA\ITAM\Application Server\web.config"

    3. Locate the line with '<appSettings>'.
    4. Create a new line after '<appSettings>' and add new entry for "DefaultCurrencyType".

      1. i.e. <add key="DefaultCurrencyType" value="EUR" />

    5. Save and exit web.config
    6. Repeat steps a-e for all other APM Application Severs if an Application Server Web Farm is implemented.

 

NOTE: CONFIGURATION IS COMPLETE IF USING ITAM 12.9 OR LATER. IF USING ITAM 12.6 OR 12.8 PLEASE FOLLOW THE ADDITIONAL STEPS BELOW:

  1. Provide the "DefaultCurrencyType" entry to the ITAM Central Configuration Controller (CCC).

    1. Login to the machine from which the APM Installation was performed.

      1. This is the machine where the "ITAM Central Configuration Controller (CCC)" Service runs.
    2. Open the Application Server's web.txt in a text editor (i.e. notepad)

      1. By default this is "%PROGRAMFILES%\CA\ITAM\InstallConfig\Templates\WebService\web.txt"

    3. Locate the line with '<appSettings>'.
    4. Create a new line after '<appSettings>' and add new entry for "DefaultCurrencyType".
