Enabling Dynamic WTP

Dynamic WTP protects your web pages while Tomcat applications are running, and can detect tampering of dynamic data, such as database data. It can be enabled with static WTP or separately.


You are using a server running the Linux OS.

    • Currently, HSS is available in the following regions: CN South-Guangzhou, CN-Hong Kong, AP-Bangkok, and AP-Singapore.
    • On the HSS (New) console, you can click Back to Old Console in the upper left corner to switch to the HSS (Old) console.
    • If cloud scan is not enabled or you access the HSS (New) console for the first time, the Enable Cloud Scan? dialog box is displayed. You are advised to select Enable cloud scan.
      • The cloud scan function is free of charge.
      • After the cloud scan function is enabled, all HSS servers will be scanned. Some HSS quota editions can support only limited scanning capabilities. Therefore, you are advised to purchase the enterprise edition or higher to enjoy all capabilities of the cloud scan function.

  6. In the displayed dialog box, modify the Tomcat bin Directory.

    To enable dynamic WTP, you need to modify the Tomcat bin directory first. The system presets the setenv.sh script in the bin directory for setting anti-tamper program startup parameters. After enabling dynamic WTP, restart Tomcat to make this setting take effect.
