How do I modify the deep link URL in alert emails?

Older Controllers (prior to version 4.2.15) follow these instructions:


  •  Modify the following element located in the controller_home>/appserver/glassfish/domains/domain1/config/domain.xml file:
  • Restart the Controller App Server.
  • This will change the deeplink URL for all accounts in the Controller.


Newer Controllers (versions 4.2.15+) follow these instructions: 


  • As of Controller version 4.2.15, there is an option to change the deeplink URL for each account and runtime. 
  • Use the following command:
curl -k --basic --user root@system --header "Content-Type: application/json" 
--data '{ "controllerURL": "http://<controller>:<port>" }'


  • Verify the change by querying the Controller database: 
select id, name, controller_url from account where name like '%<ACCOUNT-NAME>%';
