Modify Configuration Parameter Values
You modify IDOL server configuration parameters by directly editing the parameters in the configuration file. When setting configuration parameter values, you must use ASCII (the only exception to this is the PropertyFieldCSVs parameter, which accepts UTF-8).
 
IMPORTANT You must stop and restart IDOL server for new configuration settings to take effect.
The following section describes how to enter parameter values in the configuration file.
Enter Boolean Values
The following settings for Boolean parameters are interchangeable:
TRUE = true = ON = on = Y = y = 1
FALSE = false = OFF = off = N = n =0
Enter String Values
Some parameters require string values that contain quotation marks. Escape each quotation mark by inserting a backslash before it.
For example:
FIELDSTART0="<font face=\"arial\"size=\"+1\"><b>"
Here, the beginning and end of the string are 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 in a comma-separated list contains quotation marks, you must put this string into quotation marks and escape each quotation mark in the string by inserting a backslash before it.
For example:
ParameterName="<font face=\"arial\"size=\"+1\"><b>",dog,bird,"wing,beak",turtle
