Configuration parameters

Configuration parameters are set in the DIH's configuration file. When setting configuration parameter values, you must use ASCII.


You can use either a standalone or unified configuration for setting up the DIH:

In a unified configuration, use the [DistributionSettings] section of the idolserver.cfg file for the settings that would appear in the [Server] section of the DIH.cfg file in a standalone configuration. Configuration options in a unified configuration are not duplicated. See the Config params tab of the IDOL Server Help for the [DistributionSettings] section.


Entering Boolean values

Within the configuration file, the following settings for Boolean parameters 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 contained in the string are escaped.


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 in 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
