As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

[SOLVED] IBIAPP_app for maintain links ?

I’m curious about this WFServlet variable

IBIAPP_app= app path location under APPROOT where the procedure resides

Does this WFServlet variable really need to be sent to start a maintain program ?
It can be ignored in WFMSTART.HTML as long as the maintain is located in APPPATH, so that implies that it could be ignored, or left empty.

My impression is that, as long as ones application files are located in a directory that is known to APPPATH, they don't need to be
seperately 'allocated' (showing my age).

What's the scoop ?

The answer to this is Depends.

If you application is in the default path set up on the WF server then NO.

If youe application is not in the path or you are not sure what it may be when you try to start the app, then YES. this is also good, if you are trying to secure the app to some level.
