Easy Way to Change EPM Workspace Window Title

By | In Blog | August 23rd, 2017

I’m often asked for ways to help discriminate between Production and lower environments, by changing how EPM Workspace looks. There are some blog posts out in the wild that suggest you replace certain files within user_projects/domains/EPMSystem/servers/FoundationServices0/tmp, but I’m not a big fan of that approach.

To change the EPM Workspace title that appears to the right of the Oracle logo, or whatever custom logo you’ve replaced it with, run this SQL statement against your EPM System Registry database:

You can set property_value to be whatever you want.  The property_name value is case-sensitive and must be ‘ApplicationName’ exactly.

EPM Foundation caches this property when it is first initialized, so you will need to stop and restart your EPM Foundation service in order for this change to take effect.

No editing .war files inside of .ear files, and no replacing contents of /tmp folders.  Problem solved!
