Passing the crowd.properties File as an Environment Variable

When integrating a client application with Crowd, you need a crowd.properties file containing configuration details for that application. (See Important Directories and Files.)

You can pass the location of a client application's crowd.properties file to the client application as an environment variable when starting the client application. This means that you can choose a suitable location for the crowd.properties file, instead of putting it in the client application's WEB-INF/classes directory.

This applies to the Crowd Administration Console's crowd.properties file too. You may find this particularly useful when integrating with a WAR deployment of an integrated application.

Example:

-Dcrowd.properties={FILE-PATH}/crowd.properties
