Using Server Parameters in SoloSubmit

Article ID: 585  |  Last updated: 06 Jun, 2017

If your web server is configured to allow access to multiple Helix ALM Servers from a single CGI, you can specify the server to connect to in SoloSubmit URLs. If you do not specify a server, the URL connects to the default Helix ALM Server configured on the web server.

SERVERADDR and SERVERPORT parameters

Add the SERVERADDR and SERVERPORT parameters to connect to a specific Helix ALM Server computer based on the IP address.

For example, the following URL connects to a Helix ALM Server hosted on the computer with 123.456.789.101 as the IP address on port 1566:

http://localhost/cgi-bin/ttcgi.exe?command=SoloSubmitScreen&serveraddr=123.456.789.101&serverport=1566

The SERVERADDR and SERVERPORT parameters must both be specified. An error is returned if a value is missing.

SERVERNAME parameter

Add the SERVERNAME parameter to connect to a specific Helix ALM Server computer based on the server name configured on the web server. The name is configured using the Helix ALM Registry Utility.

For example, the following URL connects to the 'Development' Helix ALM Server:

http://localhost/cgi-bin/ttcgi.exe?command=SoloSubmitScreen&servername=Development

DATABASEID parameter

Add the DATABASEID parameter to the URL if you know the ID for specific project to connect to. To find project IDs, click Projects in the Helix ALM Server Admin Utility. IDs are displayed in the first column. If you do not include a project ID in the URL, the project selection dialog box is displayed when you connect to the server.

For example, the following URL connects to the project with an ID value of 10 on the ‘Development’ Helix ALM Server.

http://localhost/cgi-bin/ttcgi.exe?command=SoloSubmitScreen&servername=Development&databaseid=10
