Use Custom Properties to add any additional properties required to initialize the custom registry. The following property is predefined by the product; set this property when required only:

  • WAS_UseDisplayName--When set to true, the getCallerPrincipal(), getUserPrincipal(), and getRemoteUser() methods return the display name. By default, the securityName of the user is returned. This default is introduced to support backward compatibility with the Version 4.0 custom registry.
