Using the customer_overrides.properties file
You can create a customized properties file to override default property settings in the property files.
The customer_overrides.properties file is not changed during installation of upgrades or patches. To prevent having your customized settings overwritten, use overrides whenever possible rather than editing the property files.
If you changed property files in a previous version, either directly or by editing the associated .in files, your changes might be overwritten when a patch is applied. To prevent overwriting, create a customer_overrides.properties file.
In this example, the following items are used:
httprepresents the http.properties file.
bp_response_timeoutrepresents the bp_response_timeout property.
valueis the value that you want to prevent the setupfiles script from changing.
You do not need to run the setupfiles script after you change the customer_overrides.properties file. However, you do need to stop and restart Sterling B2B Integrator for the changes to take effect.
No audit trail is provided for changes that are made to the customer_overrides.properties file.
