Allow Cache to Support Multiple Windchill Clusters on a Load Balancing Router with Common Base URL

Allow Cache to Support Multiple Windchill Clusters on a Load Balancing Router with Common Base URL

We have an F5 load-balancing-router with a common base URL (https://some.site.com for example) servicing two separate Windchill clusters (https://some.site.com/WindchillA and https://some.site.com/WindchillB for example). When registering with WindchillA, Creo will create a cache directory called some.site.com443. If a user also registers with WindchillB, Creo will use that same cache location that it created when it registered with WindchillA, causing cache corruption.

 

If the cache directory naming included the Windchill webapp name (a.k.a., the Windchill context; i.e., some.site.com443-WindchillA or some.site.com443-WindchillB), then the cache directories would be unique, thus avoiding cache corruption.

Since PTC Product Management has stated that there are currently no plans to change this area of the integration at this time, cross-referencing idea https://community.ptc.com/t5/Creo-Parametric-Ideas/Need-Block-List-capability-for-the-Creo-Embedded-Browser-in-Creo/idc-p/900906

 

If this Idea were to be accepted, then we could work around this issue fairly nicely,
