Setting preferences for the API toolkit

You can specify your preferences for default behaviors for host connections, service deployment, API deployment, and logging in the preferences window.

To set your preferences, from the menu bar, click Window > Preferences > z/OS® Connect.

The API deployment and service deployment preferences apply to APIs and services that you will be deploying, updating, or removing. By default, APIs and services are started upon deployment and stopped before they are updated. The connection preferences apply to new connections that you will be creating.

You can override these default settings when you are creating individual host connections or deploying individual APIs or services.
