Setting Up Tools

In these instructions, replace the ‘{my_appliance_ip_or_my_appliance_hostname}’ text with the IP address or domain name that’s assigned to your Virtual Appliance.

Setting up the widgets

! Verify these instructions are still correct.

In addition to the existing widget instructions on your Appliance’s Widgets tab, you must include an additional Javascript variable in order to have the widgets communicate with your instance of the Virtual Appliance.

 var BP_SEARCH_SERVER = "http://{my_appliance_ip_or_my_appliance_hostname}";
