Provide a way to dynamically add trusted hosts & whitelist prefixes to Windchill Environment

Provide a way to dynamically add trusted hosts & whitelist prefixes to Windchill Environment

Provide a way to dynamically update trusted hosts & whitelist prefixes for Windchill

 

Currently you have to set the following properties - worker.exe.whitelist.prefixes & wt.auth.trustedHost, repropogate & restart Windchill.  This is cumbersome and means that to add a new IP address or drive path you have to restart Widnchill causing downtime or waiting for a maintenance window.  If a worker stops working, and you need to stand up a new worker your options are : Function at reduced capability, Have immediate downtime (and possible subsequent downtime), or future downtime

 

Possible Solutions:

  • For trusted host,
    • allow a subnet range
    • dynamically read from another file that doesn't require restart
    • Use certificate authentication between servers
  • For prefix whitelisting, allow 
    • Dynamically read from another file that doesn't require restart
