To maintain a cleaner look of your ThingWorx server access URL, whether for production or convenience reasons, you may look into setting up redirection.

This is a quick example on how to redirect <> to <>


Go to the /<apache-tomcat-directory>/webapps/ROOT/ and find the "index.jsp" file. Copy that file for backup purposes and replace with a new one, containing the following:

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<script type="text/javascript"> 
        function Redirect() { 
        setTimeout('Redirect()', 0); 


Please note that once the URL is hit, it will still append the rest of the /Thingworx query in the address bar (i.e keep the "redirected to" address).


You may also utilize this to have your <> redirect to one of the mashups. This was the user, with proper permissions in place, may access the mashup directly, bypassing the Composer.
