PeopleSoft Servlet directives give you a number of useful functions.
To use them, append the appropriate directive after your the URL:
The easiest way to get the correct URL is to visit the signon page of the relevant environment and replace ?cmd=login with the appropriate directive.
The directives typically also need a password, and the default password is dayoff. However if you get the message:
You are not authorized to use this feature!
It means the password has been changed in the web profile configuration. Navigate to:
PeopleTools > Web Profile > Web Profile Configuration
And browse through the list of web profiles (unless you know the one that's in use). In the custom properties tab there will be a property called auditPWD (type = string) and a value which is the profile password. Use this password, or if there is none set, add this property. Note: removing the property doesn't give full access, it takes away all access!
Here's the list of directives:
|Directive||What it Does|
|?cmd=viewconfig&pwd=dayoff||View the current web profile|
|?cmd=reloadconfig&pwd=dayoff||Reloads the web profile in use|
|?cmd=viewsprop&pwd=dayoff||Displays session properties|
|?cmd=debugCache&pwd=dayoff||Manage web cache - use IE|
|?cmd=purge&pwd=dayoff||Purge the web server cache. If it doesn't work immediately, try issuing this command at least another 3-5 times in a row (simply hit the URL over and over, no need to wait). Sometimes stubborn caching isn't immediately purged the first time your run this.|
