Issue/Introduction

If an email is sent to a reviewing user to perform a sign-off for example, it contains a link to the server where the TDM Portal is running.
The host name of the server is the host name as it is known locally on the server itself and is a non-FullyQualifiedDomainName.
How can a different host name like a FQDN be configured.

Environment

Release : 4.9

Component : Test Data Manager - Other

Resolution

In application.properties (in C:\Program Files\CA\CA Test Data Manager Portal\conf) set the following:
tdmweb.address=<hostname>
tdmweb.port=<port>

Note that for emails regarding a password reset, the following properties have to be used:
tdmweb.webserver.address=<hostname>:<port>
tdmweb.use.webserver.address=true
