Web parameter: viewcontexthelp

Web parameters change the behavior of the web clients that connect to the web tier. For more information, see Web tier parameters.




This parameter enables the web client to display the same context-sensitive help debug information (field) in field help as the Windows client. To enable this feature, append viewcontexthelp=true to the web client URL for current user or set it in the web tier configuration files (web.xml or webtier.properties) for all users.

Note This feature is only supported for the Power User mode (index.do).

Valid if set from

Web browser URL

Web tier configuration file (web.xml and webtier.properties)

Note When this parameter is defined using all of the three methods, the one set from web browser URL takes the highest precedence. However, if set from web browser, this parameter is valid only when set at login, and once set at login it remains valid until you log out or the session times out.

Requires restart of the web applications server?

No if set from the login URL (only requires a re-login)

Yes if set from the web tier configuration file
