About this task

To set up offline notifications to be saved in a file:


  1. Add the following data to the file using a text editor:
    • noapp.dbDeadLineThread=true
    • bpdeadline.deadlinePerBP=false
    • bpdeadline.includeBPstate=true
    • bpdeadline.dbDeadlineThreadOffline=true
    • bpdeadline.offlineFile=true
    • bpdeadline.updateStatus=true
      Note: Since the bpdeadline.updateStatus=true, you may not receive the final notification when Sterling B2B Integrator comes back online.
  2. Save and close the file.
  3. Stop and restart Sterling B2B Integrator in order for your customer property overrides to take effect.

    • For UNIX, install/bin/

      Note: Depending on the amount of time between when Sterling B2B Integrator goes offline and you run this offline notification command, you may miss a deadline notification.
