Easy Way to Change EPM Workspace Window Title

Dave Shay | | August 23, 2017

EPM workspace

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:

UPDATE hss_component_property_values
SET property_value = 'EPM Workspace 11.1.2.4 - Datavail Demo Lab'
WHERE property_name = 'ApplicationName'

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!

Tips for Upgrading From SQL 2008 to 2012 or 2014

It’s 2015 and you can now establish totally respectable MS SQL DBA credibility just by mentioning you have been in the game since SQL Server version 9. You may even get the same gasps of shock from some colleagues that used to be reserved for the version 6 veterans.
