By default, the Wowza Streaming Engine Manager assumes it’s running on the same host as the Wowza Streaming Engine you’re trying to manage. In order to connect to an engine on a different host, you can specify the REST API URL for that host in the UI of the manager login screen.
We’re running Wowza Streaming Engine and Wowza Streaming Engine Manager in separate Docker containers. Right now, in order to use the manager with the engine running in the other container, we need to manually enter the URL in the login screen each time.
Is there any way to configure the manager to connect to a different engine host by default, i.e. without having to enter that host URL in the login UI? Some Java system property we can set, some value we can put in $WSMGR_HOME/conf/Manager.xml?
