SSPR Appliance - how to change path?

Does anyone know how to change the path for the SSPR Appliance.
Installed on a linux or windows server I can have multiple versions and instances of SSPR
But on the appliance is seems stuck on using /sspr as the path.
This would be great if I only need one, but I have many setups for password reset as different applications have different user requirements.

The appliance is good for other things, but if the path can't be changed - or it can support multiple instances, we are back to using tomcat on windows 😞

Thanks
Mike

Re: SSPR Appliance - how to change path?

after reading more of this forum, it looks like the appliance will only work as a single instance of SSPR and will only allow itself to be called servername/sspr
Unfortunately that also means that if I would need to build multiple appliances.
Even worse - I just tried setting it up on windows and it seems to work the same way there.
The only way I can get the war file to work on its own is on linux

Re: SSPR Appliance - how to change path?

You could create your own appliance using SUSE Studio; I've built some
that way, though not for SSPR (but for eDirectory, etc.) so that I could
spin up a system by just turning the thing on. If you either put your
configuration data on there, or else pull it in on first boot, it makes
for a pretty seamless setup.

The purpose of appliances, including software appliances, is to be
consistent, easy to setup, and minimally-configured, so I am not sure this
does not work. The nature of other OS's is similar, so I'm not that
surprised the same thing happens there.

Good luck.

Re: SSPR Appliance - how to change path?

thanks for the input, it is much appreciated
I think I'm just going to setup a minimal sles server and use the war installation.
At least I can maintain many sspr installations and get support with that environment 🙂

Can you just use the multiple profiles option for that?

Then it's based on the userid, group/ou, I think?

Sadly not, it doesn't include enough in the profile. I need emails, fields, admins, css etc to be part of the profile.
I also tried installing the Windows version, but that works just like the appliance.
Last shot was the WAR install, but that only works on linux.

In the end I got a fresh Windows server install, added java and tomcat then deployed PWM 🙂
