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. Changing a configuration parameter can result in calculations for the DBQueue Processor.

To edit configuration parameters

  1. In Designer, select Base data | General | Configuration parameters.
  2. Select the configuration parameter in the Configuration Parameter Editor.
  3. In the Configuration parameter view, select the Properties tab.
  4. Customize the following settings.
    • 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: Configuration parameter value.

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

Creating custom configuration parameters

If it is necessary to define other custom configuration parameters, you can add them below the Custom configuration parameter.

To set up a new configuration parameter

  1. In the Designer, select Base data | General | Configuration parameters.
  2. Select the Custom configuration parameter and use the Insert context menu to insert a new configuration parameter.
  3. In the Configuration parameter view on the Properties tab, edit the master data of the configuration parameter.
  4. Specify permitted values on the options tab (optional).
    • To create a new option, click Insert.
    • To remove an option, click Delete.

Configuration parameter properties

Table 10: 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.

NOTE: To show the display names in Configuration Parameter Editor, select the Configuration parameter | Show captions menu item.

Configuration parameters that do not have a display name are displayed in brackets (<<>>) in this mode. 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 names are displayed in Configuration Parameter Editor.

Value Value of the configuration parameter. You must enter a value for every configuration parameter. Even parent configuration parameters that serve no purpose other than providing a structure must 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.

Configuration parameter options

If a configuration parameter only permits certain values, these values are defined in the configuration parameter options.

Table 11: Option Properties
Property Description
Value Value permitted for the configuration parameter.
Description Description of the configuration parameter option.
Preprocessor expression Preprocessor relevant configuration parameters as assigned a valid preprocessor expression in the options. This can be used as a preprocessor condition for conditional compiling.
