The volume purchase agreement (VPA) number appears in the client’sbox and is used by the Metering server. If the VPA is unspecified, it is reported as 00000 in the emulator and in metering reports.
If you did not enter your number during installation, you can add it here.
You can enter up to 45 characters to identify this Administrative Server. This name is helpful for debugging in larger environments where more than one Administrative Server is behind a load balancer. In these cases, it can be difficult for the client to determine which Administrative Server is being accessed.
This string is printed in the Java console.
If you specify a custom login page here, the custom page jsp must be stored on the server in the templates folder directly or in a subfolder. A sample custom login page is available in the MSS/server/web/webapps/mss/templates/samples folder, along with some other samples for dynamic embedded sessions.
If the custom login page is not found under the templates folder, the default login page is displayed. If you are developing a custom login page and have trouble getting it to display properly, you may not be able to access the Administrative Console to change the custom page specification. Rename the custom page in the templates folder, and the default page will be used.
The Reflection for the Web Launcher is a private client-side application that eliminates the need for Oracle’s JRE or the Java plug-in. This feature is available with Reflection for the Web 13.0 and higher.
Three deployment options are available to accommodate your environment’s readiness to transition away from Oracle’s JRE and/or the Java plug-in and begin using the Reflection for the Web Launcher.
NOTE: In Reflection for the Web versions prior to 13.0, the and options are disabled.
Select theoption until you are ready to move away from Oracle’s JRE or the Java plug-in.
The user experience is the same as with previous versions of Reflection for the Web, which rely on the Java browser plug-in and its legacy JNLP (Java Network Launch Protocol) behavior to launch the links list and Reflection for the Web sessions (before version 13.0).
Select theoption for a phased rollout. As you transition away from the Java browser plug-in and/or Oracle’s JRE, you can roll out Reflection for the Web Launcher to subsets of users.
In the hybrid environment, the user’s setup determines whether Reflection for the Web sessions are launched using either theor the method.

This setting applies only to sessions that are configured to launch in a frame outside of the browser page.
NOTE:Java version detection is disabled by default to provide faster startup of sessions on the client. When Java detection is enabled, users are informed when their Java version is unsupported by the product.
The specific version of Java detected is also used to configure applet parameters that help manage the behavior of sessions when navigating away from and back to the web page.
To enable Java version detection, edit this configuration file:
Change the enableJavaVersionDetection value from false to true:
