IDP 4.3.1 Ubuntu 22.04/Tomcat 9 - No Access to App Subdirectories

If you're trying to access them at /idp/images, you should put them in edit-webapp/WEB-INF/images and rebuild the war file. Any paths under /dip are taken from contents of the war file.

If you want them in /images, not /idp/images, that needs to be handled by the root app of Tomcat.

We're migrating the IDP from Centos 7 to Ubuntu 22.04. The IDP in general works just fine but I get this error when trying to access any file in a subdirectory:

"The origin server did not find a current representation for the target resource or is not willing to disclose that one exists."

For instance we have some images under idp/images that return that error. At first I thought it was related to systemd readwrite restrictions but that doesn't seem to be the case. Has anyone come across this before? Thanks!
