Setting up an alternative host

In the advanced settings for a custom mobile app, you can set up the app to connect to a specific URL that points to the same instance of the Pega Platform servlet, or an identical copy of the servlet. This way you can distribute the workload between servers or redirect users from different regions or subsidiary companies to URL addresses that correspond to their location.
  1. On the Configuration tab, expand the Advanced section.
  2. Select the Override default host check box.
  3. Enter a URL address for another App Studio instance, in the following format: http://<SERVER_HOSTNAME>:<SERVER_PORT>/prweb/<SERVLET_NAME>, for example
  4. Click Save.
