Changing default Client Launcher Download option in ALM?

Question ID: 110111

Hello,

  We have recently upgraded to ALM 15.5x and we are starting to use the Client Launcher due to the IE being discontinued in  a few months.  The issue we would like to change is that when we go to the client launcher splash screen it defaults to the “Download from Marketplace” option with that radio button selected.  We would like to have it default to the server option where we have hosted the client launcher.  Is there a way to do this?

Thanks,

HomerJ

Hi HomerJ,

You can change the default radio button selected by doing the following:

1) Stop the ALM service
2) Navigate to where ALM is deployed. Typically...

Windows: <drive>ProgramDataMicro FocusALMwebappsqcbin
Linux: /var/opt/ALM/webapps/qcbin

3) In the folder "qcbin" locate the file: Launcher_index.html
4) Open the file for editing
5) Locate the strings that pertain to the main option for example: <div id="main_option_marketplace" class="main_option_subtitle main_option_subtitle_radio is_active">From Marketplace</div>
6) Change the string so it appears like this: <!--<div id="main_option_marketplace" class="main_option_subtitle main_option_subtitle_radio is_inactive">From Marketplace</div>-->

7) Locate the string: <div id="main_option_marketplace" class="main_option_subtitle main_option_subtitle_radio is_inactive">From Server</div>
7) Change the string so it appears like this: <!--<div id="main_option_marketplace" class="main_option_subtitle main_option_subtitle_radio is_active">From Server</div>-->
8) Save changes
9) Start the ALM service

 

Hope this helps,

Dan
