About Parameters in the eapps.cfg File

The eapps.cfg file contains parameters that control interactions between the Siebel Web Engine and the Siebel Web Server Extension (SWSE) for all Siebel Business Applications deploying the Siebel Web Client. The eapps.cfg file is located in the SWEAPP_ROOT\bin directory after you apply a SWSE logical profile, where SWEAPP_ROOT is the directory in which you installed the SWSE.

The eapps.cfg file includes sections such as [swe], [defaults], and [connmgmt] and sections for individual Siebel Business Applications, such as [/prmportal_enu] and [/callcenter_enu]. Each parameter value in the [defaults] section is used by all individual applications, unless you override the parameter's value with an entry in an application's own section.

You can edit the parameters in the eapps.cfg file manually using a text editor or you can configure and apply a SWSE logical profile using the Siebel Configuration Wizard. When you edit configuration files, do not use a text editor that adds additional, nontext characters to the file. For information on using the Siebel Configuration Wizard to configure SWSE parameters, see Siebel Installation Guide for the operating system you are using.

In a given eapps.cfg file, some parameters might not appear by default. Changes to the eapps.cfg file are not active until you restart the Siebel Server and the Web server.

Sample Eapps.cfg File

The following is a portion of a sample eapps.cfg file. This sample includes some parameters that might not coexist. They are provided so you can see a range of authentication-related parameters. In the eapps.cfg sample, the AnonUserName and AnonPassword values in the [/prmportal_enu] section are used by Siebel Partner Portal instead of the values provided in the [defaults] section.

Language = enu
Log = all
LogDirectory = D:\sba8x\SWEApp\log
ClientRootDir = D:\sba8x\SWEApp
IntegratedDomainAuth = FALSE

EncryptedPassword = TRUE
AnonUserName = GUESTCST
AnonPassword = fhYt8T*9N4e8&Qay
StatsPage = _492394stats.swe
SingleSignOn = TRUE
TrustToken = mR*739DAPw*94%O2

WebPublicRootDir = D:\sba8x\SWEApp\public\enu
SiebEntSecToken = fJq&29&58hJaY(A8!Z
UserSpecSource = Server
DoCompression = TRUE
SessionTimeout = 900
GuestSessionTimeout = 300
SessionTimeoutWarning = 300

AnonUserName = guestcp
AnonPassword = aGr^92!8RWnf7Iy1
ProtectedVirtualDirectory = /p_prmportal_enu
ConnectString = siebel.TCPIP.None.None://
SiebEntSecToken = ^s*)Jh!#7^s*)Jh!#7

CACertFileName = d:\siebel\admin\cacertfile.pem
CertFileName = d:\siebel\admin\certfile.pem
KeyFileName = d:\siebel\admin\kefile.txt
KeyFilePassword = ^s*)Jh!#7
PeerAuth = FALSE
PeerCertValidation = FALSE

Typically, password encryption is in effect by default for the eapps.cfg file, as determined by the setting EncryptedPassword = TRUE. In this case, values for SiebEntSecToken, AnonPassword, and TrustToken must be encrypted. For more information, see Encrypted Passwords in the eapps.cfg File.

NOTE:  It is recommended that you set the value for StatsPage to a value other than the default value (_stats.swe).
