    Smartview connection urls

    pat2
      I am confused with the connection urls used in smartview
      what is the difference between http://servername:13080/aps/SmartView and http://servername:13080/aps/APS.
      I tried using them both and both of them seem to be working fine.
      are they one and the same ?

          Also you can try

          http://servername:8300/HyperionPlanning/SmartView
          http://servername/hfmofficeprovider/hfmofficeprovider.aspx

            As far as they know they are the same, though you usually use /SmartView for using essbase with SmartView
            It ignores anything after the first /aps so in theory you could use http://<apsserver>:13080/aps/SmartViewIsTheRouteOfAllEvil

            Cheers

              Technically, it doesn't ignore the rest but rather, I believe it is mapped to default to the SmartView servlet in the last entry in the APS web.xml file. You can see also that both /APS and /SmartView are mapped to the SmartView servlet but /XMLA is mapped to the XMLA servlet and /JAPI is mapped to the JAPI (Java API) servlet.
