Using the file

You can create a customized properties file to override default property settings in the property files.

The 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 file.

For example, to set the value of the bp_response_timeout property in the file so that it is not affected by the bp_response_timeout property in the file when the setupfiles script is run, add the following line to the file:

In this example, the following items are used:

  • http represents the file.
  • bp_response_timeout represents the bp_response_timeout property.
  • value is 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 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 file.

Attention: The following cdinterop files can be modified without stopping Sterling B2B Integrator because the changes take effect immediately. Therefore, you cannot use to preserve them. Instead, save the file with a different name to create a backup:

Before You Begin

For each property that you want to override, you must have the following information:
The name that is used in the file to reference the actual property file.
The name of the property in the specified property file.
The value that you want to assign to the property.
