Useful PIA Servlet Directives

By Chris Malek | Wed, Oct 13, 2010

There are several “hidden” PIA servlet commands that can be used to perform several key actions when maintaining a PIA webserver. The “pwd” parameter comes from the custom tab on the web profile configuration page. The default value is “dayoff”. The easiest way to get the correct URL is to visit your login page and then insert the disired “cmd” value.

Note: These are case sensitive.
