Creating a dynamic system setting


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Add a dynamic system settings rule to change default system behavior.

For example, by default, encryption and authentication are not enabled for communication among search nodes. To enable encryption, create the indexing/distributed/enable_inter_node_encryption dynamic system setting and set it to true.
  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click Create SysAdmin Dynamic System Settings .

  2. Enter a short description.

  3. Enter the Owning Ruleset.

    If no ruleset is associated with the data instance, when the data instance is saved, the system assigns a ruleset from the current application, which assists with application packaging.
  4. In the Setting Purpose field, enter the name of the setting.

    indexing/distributed/enable_inter_node_encryption, where the key structure has the following components:
    • File type – Specifies the kind of setting for the instance.
      • prconfig – Used for prconfig.xml settings.
      • properties – Used for settings.
      • blank (no value entered) – Used for unspecified Data-Admin-System-Settings.
    • Setting name – Specifies the name of the setting and can include long strings that are divided by slashes or periods.
    • Node classification – Specifies the node classification for the instance. For prconfig.xml settings, use default. For example, the prconfig.xml setting asyncservices/enable as a dynamic system setting is prconfig/asyncservices/enable/default.
  5. Click Create and open.

  6. In the Value field, enter the value for the setting.

    • true for a Boolean value
    • 100 timeout value
  7. Click Save.
