Hi, I need to solve following problem. We have an ivy project deployed as a system application so it is not possible to manage it from the administration window. But it is necessary to change users and global variables. This is possible to do in the system database but this is not a good solution.

Do you have any idea how to do it? Is there any hack like start the administration tool with same parameter etc.?

You could adjust the AdminUI project on your own, so that it can handle system applications. Of course this is an evil hack - but as you're already relying on a system app this might does not matter...

Just import AdminUI & IvyCommons from server/applications/System into a Designer. Then you can adjust the code so that it uses system APP compatible API. Maybe it's sufficient to adjust the ApplicationChooser Dialog, so that it displays System APPs.

Replace the applications resolve call to: IApplicationConfigurationManager.html#getApplicationsSortedByName(boolean)

See the sample Screenshot:

Thank you for your reply. This works for us but as you said, changes in AdminUI are not a good idea. I thing we will try to design it in a different way to be independent on changes in AdminUI project.
