Web parameter: querySecurity

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




Enabling this parameter causes the Service Manager web tier to verify the security key of a URL query generated by the Service Manager server, and, if valid, authorize the query. Disabling this parameter allows any user with log on permissions, the skills to create a query, and access to the Service Manager URL to extract data from any Service Manager table.

Note This parameter is tied to the security parameter "querysecurity" (spelled with all lowercase letters). To disable the security hash feature, you must disable querySecurity in the web.xml file and querysecurity in the sm.ini file.
