Identify the instance prefix that the web server uses to access the InterSystems IRIS® data platform.


[Startup]    WebServerURLPrefix=n

n is an alphanumeric string to be used in a URL. As a guideline, WebServerURLPrefix should be shorter than 80 characters. The default is the instance name in all lowercase characters.


WebServerURLPrefix is used by Studio when constructing URLs. It is necessary to set this parameter only if you must enable InterSystems Studio. This should match the CSP Server Instance setting.

Changing This Parameter

On the Startup page of the Management Portal (System Administration > Configuration > Additional Settings > Startup), in the WebServerURLPrefix row, select Edit. Enter an InterSystems IRIS instance name.

Instead of using the Management Portal, you can change WebServerURLPrefix in the Config.StartupOpens in a new tab class (as described in the class reference) or by editing the CPF in a text editor (as described in Editing the Active CPF).
