2586026 - How to check (and amend) Application Aliases on SAP NetWeaver AS Java


The aim of this document is to specify the options system administrators have, to check (and enable/disable as per need) the configured Application Aliases on an SAP Netweaver Application Server JAVA.

NOTE: This option should be enabled after considerable consideration from a security perspective as it can be used for exposing sensitive data.

It is not recommended to do this on productive environments. Aliases that you maintain should point to only those applications that are actually needed for monitoring and not to applications that can potentially contain sensitive information. There is no user based authorization for this feature, so should be enabled keeping in mind the security risks.

Also the changes take effect instantly (no restart is needed).
