Views in the Configuration Parameter Editor

Views in the Configuration Parameter Editor

The Configuration Parameter Editor has several views for displaying and editing the configuration parameters.

Table 53: Configuration Parameter Editor Views
View Description
Hierarchical view This view contains a hierarchical representation of the configuration parameters and some selected properties. You can enable and disable the configuration parameters by clicking with the mouse on a check box.
Edit view Use the edit view to edit the properties of the selected configuration parameter and its options. A default context menu is available for input fields.
Preprocessor definitions view

All preprocessor statements for preprocessor relevant configuration parameters are shown in this view. Preprocessor conditions cannot be edit here.

TIP: If you double click on a entry you change to the corresponding configuration parameter in the hierarchical view.

Table 54: Context Menu Items for the Hierarchical View
Context Menu Item Meaning
New Adds a new configuration parameter.
Delete Deletes the selected configuration parameter.
Select columns... Opens a dialog window to select columns to be shown additionally in the hierarchical view.

Editing Configuration Parameters

The supplied configuration parameters and the permitted values are maintained by the schema installation. You cannot edit the properties of these parameters. You can enable and disable them and specify the actual value for the parameter. Other properties of predefined configuration parameters cannot be edited. Calculation tasks for the DBQueue Processor can result from changes a configuration parameter.

To edit configuration parameters

  1. Select the category Base data | General | Configuration parameters in the Designer.
  2. Start the Configuration Parameter Editor from Edit configuration parameters in the task view.

    All configuration parameters and their options are displayed in the hierarchical view. You can also see whether the parameters are preprocessor relevant or if the value should be encrypted before being passed.

  3. Select the configuration parameter and configure the settings.
    Table 55: Configuration Parameter Settings
    Property Meaning
    Enabled

    Specifies whether the configuration parameter is enabled. Check the box to enable the configuration parameter. Uncheck the box to disable the configuration parameter.

    Value Value of the configuration parameter.

IMPORTANT: Compile the database if the configuration parameter is preprocessor relevant.

If it is necessary to define more custom configuration parameters, you can add them in the configuration parameter list item "Custom".

To set up a new configuration parameter

  1. Select the category Base data | General | Configuration parameters in the Designer.
  2. Start the Configuration Parameter Editor from Edit configuration parameters in the task view.
  3. Select the configuration parameter "Custom" and enter a new configuration parameter using the New in the context menu.
  4. Edit the configuration parameter's master data.
  5. Specify permitted values on the options tab (optional).
    • Click Add to add a new option.
    • Click Remove to remove an option.

Configuration Parameter Properties

Table 56: Configuration Parameter Properties
Property Description
Full name Full name of the configuration parameter. This consists of the name of the parameter and the name of the parent parameter.
Parameter Technical name of the configuration parameter.
Display name The display name supplies the caption for the configuration parameter. The display names can be stored as language dependent. Configuration parameters that do not have a display name are displayed in brackets (<<>>). In addition, a tooltip with the technical name is displayed.
Sort order

The sort order affects how the configuration parameters are ordered in the Configuration Parameter Editor.

NOTE: The sort order is only effective if the display text is shown in the editor (menu Configuration parameters | Show captions).

Value Value of the configuration parameter. You must enter a value for every configuration parameter. Even the parent parameters which serve no purpose other than providing a structure, may not be empty, otherwise the child configuration parameters cannot be accessed. Some configuration parameters have several permitted values. These are specified using the configuration parameter options and can be selected here. A description of the selected option is also shown.
Description Description of the configuration parameter. Click Edit to edit the description.
Enabled Specifies whether the configuration parameter is enabled. If this option is set, the configuration parameter is enabled. If this option is not set, then the whole tree from this point on is considered disabled and the configuration parameter and its child parameters are considered not to exist.
Encrypted Configuration parameters are marked with this option when they contain encrypted data, for example, passwords. When a new value is entered it is therefore encrypted immediately.
Preprocessor relevant parameter

This option marked configuration parameters as preprocessor relevant. A preprocessor statement is entered in the associated option field that is used for conditional compiling.

NOTE: When a preprocessor relevant configuration parameter is set it is valid globally across the system. The preprocessor condition does not come into effect until the database has been compiled. Every time a preprocessor relevant configuration parameter or its option is changed the database needs to be recompiled.
