Configuration parameters

The parameters that determine how a connector operates are set in the IDOL Console or the connector's configuration file. You can modify these parameters to customize the connector according to your needs.


Entering Boolean values

For parameters that require Boolean settings, the following settings are interchangeable:

TRUE = true = ON = on = Y = y = 1

FALSE = false = OFF = off = N = n =0


Entering string values

Some parameters require string values that contain quotation marks. Escape each quotation mark by inserting a slash in front of it.

For example:

FIELDSTART0="<font face=\"arial\"size=\"+1\"><b>"

Here, the beginning and end of the string is indicated by quotation marks while all quotation marks that are contained in the string are escaped.


If you want to enter a comma-separated list of strings for a parameter, and one of the strings contains a comma, you must indicate the start and the end of this string with quotation marks.

For example:

ParameterName=cat,dog,bird,"wing,beak",turtle


If any string within a comma-separated list contains quotation marks, you must put this string into quotation marks and escaped the quotation marks in the string by putting a slash in front of them.

For example:

ParameterName="<font face=\"arial\"size=\"+1\"><b>",dog,bird,"wing,beak",turtle
