Defining plug-in aliases

You define plug-in aliases in the ar.cfg or ar.conf configuration file. Use this format:

Server-Plugin-Alias: aliasName realName hostName[:portNumber]




Name referenced in BMC Remedy AR System applications. AR Filter API calls and vendor forms reference this alias name. This is an arbitrary string, but it cannot include semicolons or blank-space characters, such as spaces, tabs, or new lines.


Actual name that the plug-in exposes to the plug-in server.


Name of the host the AR System server accesses to find the associated plug-in server.


Port number the AR System server connects with when accessing the associated plug-in server. This is optional. If you do not specify a port number, the Plugin-Port is used.
