About the server.conf.yaml file

The server.conf.yaml type requires a server.conf.yaml file that the integration server will use.

The file is placed in the overrides directory for the running server, so any default values that are set for the integration server container will be overridden by the values that are set in this file. The server.conf.yaml file contents are identical to the contents of the file used in IBM® App Connect Enterprise software and there is no enforced limit on what properties can be set.

Only one server.conf.yaml file can be specified per integration server.

You can obtain a copy of the server.conf.yaml configuration file from the /home/aceuser/ace-server directory in the pod, or from the local directory installDir/server/sample/configuration where IBM App Connect Enterprise Toolkit is installed; for example, on Windows: C:\Program Files\IBM\ACE\12.0.1.0\server\sample\configuration. A sample file is provided in the attached ZIP archive for reference: server.conf.zip.

For more information about how to modify the server.conf.yaml file, see Configuring an integration server by modifying the server.conf.yaml file.
