Configure Privacera Platform system properties

When you download the Privacera Platform package, system properties for each Privacera service are pre-configured and bundled in it. Privacera allows you to append additional system properties that were not pre-configured. To know which Privacera services can be configured, see Privacera Platform system properties files overview.

To configure additional system properties, follow these steps:

  1. Get the custom file name to be configured for the service from Privacera Platform system properties files overview.

  2. Replace $ADD_FILE_NAME with the file name in the following command and run it.

    vi ~/privacera/privacera-manager/config/custom-properties/$ADD_FILE_NAME
  3. Add the required system properties.

  4. Update Privacera Manager.

    cd ~/privacera/privacera-manager
    ./ update

Let's illustrate the steps described above with an example. Suppose you are unable to access Privacera Portal due to a Whitelabel Error Page message. To address this problem, you need to add the following properties:

  • privacera.portal.saml.max.authentication.age.sec

  • privacera.portal.saml.response.skew.sec

  • privacera.portal.saml.force.authn

These properties are not configured in the default system properties of the Portal service and have to be added separately.

To add these properties:

  1. From the table, refer to the Portal service in the Service column and gets its custom file name. In this case, it is

  2. Add the file name in the following command and run it.

    vi ~/privacera/privacera-manager/config/custom-properties/
  3. Add the following properties with their values.

  4. Run the update.

    cd ~/privacera/privacera-manager
    ./ update
