Can I re-use the AcuSensor file on multiple Targets?

By default an individual AcuSensor file is generated for each Target you create. This helps make generation of AcuSensor files simple since you do not need to manage or remember secrets used by AcuSensor.

This being said, there might be situations where you’d need to use the same AcuSensor installation for more than one Target. One such example is when you create the two Targets with the same URL, but with different settings.

To use the same AcuSensor file in this situation, you’ll need to manually set a password in AcuSensor’s configuration by navigating to the Target’s Advanced tab and selecting the Reset AcuSensor Password button at the bottom of the screen.

This will open a dialog. Select the Use a custom password checkbox and enter a strong password.

Repeat this for the number of Targets you wish to configure AcuSensor on with the same password. You will need to re-download and re-deploy AcuSensor after this change for this change to be effective.
