Activity Stream Showing local host for Enterprise Tester

When i create anything in JIRA is show up correctly inside the activity Stream e.g. http://servername:8080/browse/HCP-2

I have ENterprise Tester configured, when something in ENterprise Tester shows up it add it like this:

http://localhost/EnterpriseTester/home#/requirement/list/xxxxx

when it should be

http://differentserver:8080/EnterpriseTester/home#/requirement/list/xxxxx

In Enterprise Tester you need to configure the externally accessible URL for the Enterprise Tester server wthin the web.config file (found within the \Enterprise Tester\Web\ folder of your installation).

If you open the web.config file in a text editor (be sure to make a backup first of the file, in case you break something), and then locate the <appSettings> section which will look like this:

&lt;appSettings&gt;
    &lt;add key="Licensing.ServerKey.GenerationMode" value="Stable" /&gt;
    &lt;add key="migration.providerName" value="Migrator.Providers.SqlServer.SqlServer2005Dialect" /&gt;
    &lt;add key="PathService.PackagePathSeparator" value="|" /&gt;
    &lt;add key="aspnet:MaxHttpCollectionKeys" value="10000" /&gt;
    &lt;add key="attachment.storage.method" value="FileSystemCas" /&gt;
&lt;/appSettings&gt;

You can then insert another entry, with the key site.root.url, and the value should be the externally accessible root URL For your Enterprise Tester server:

&lt;add key="site.root.url" value="http://differentserver:8080/EnterpriseTester/" /&gt;

Then save your changes, which will cause the Enterprise Tester application to restart on the next request it recieves.

At this point any new activity stream entries generated will contain the correct URL - however because activity stream entries are physically added and stored within Jira, this will not fix the existing activity stream entries, which will still contain the incorrect URL.

FYI - you can find a full list of appSettings you can use in the web.config file on the website here:
