Manage servlets without editing the web.xml file (8.6)

This content applies only to Cloud environments.

Servlet Management has been added to Pega Platform™, enabling Pega Cloud® clients to add, modify, and disable the servlet configurations without editing the web.xml file.

This new configuration feature provides Pega Cloud clients with a simple, secure method of managing the servlets of their applications. 

There are two types of servlets that appear in this list: System-created servlets (default) and Custom servlets, which are created by the security administrator. The Add servlet button enables administrators to create servlets.

The Availability column displays whether the servlet has been enabled or disabled, and whether a restart is required for changes to take effect. 

When adding a servlet from the Servlet Management landing page, the URL pattern configured for the servlet adds servlet mappings for the corresponding servlet on the backend. For example, if there is a URL pattern named PRServlet under a servlet WebStandard, then there will be two servlet mappings /PRServlet and /PRServlet/* added in the backend.

When you make changes in the Servlet Management, you must restart your system for the changes to take effect.
