Parameters in the tm1s.cfg File

The parameters in the tm1s.cfg file are described here.

Dynamic parameter

Dynamic parameter values can be edited while the IBM® Cognos® TM1® server is running.

The Cognos TM1 server continuously polls the tm1s.cfg file at 60 second intervals to determine if any dynamic parameter values have changed. If the server detects a parameter value change, the new value is applied immediately. Dynamic parameters are identified with a statement describing them as "dynamic" in this list.

Static parameter

Static parameter values are read from the tm1s.cfg file only when the IBM Cognos TM1 server starts. If you want to change a static parameter value, you must shut down the Cognos TM1 server, edit the value in the tm1s.cfg file, and then restart the server.

Most parameters in the tm1s.cfg file are static.

Spaces in values

If a parameter value contains spaces, enclose the parameter values within double quotes.
