Manual configuration

Certain configuration properties in the Spotfire system are rarely used and cannot be set using commands. To use these properties you manually edit the server configuration. You may also want to work directly in the configuration to configure features that require complex commands, such as enabling several authentication options.

There are two ways to manually edit the configuration:
  • Export the configuration to a configration.xml file and open the file in an XML or text editor.

    Spotfire Server configurations are stored in the Spotfire database and can be exported to a configuration.xml file for editing or sharing. The configuration settings can also be exported to file for backup purposes, to be imported into another cluster to set up multiple clusters with similar settings, or to be sent to TIBCO Support for inspection.For instructions, see Manually editing the server configuration in an XML or text editor.
  • Open the Spotfire configuration tool and edit the configuration on the XML View page.

    The active configuration file can also be edited in the Spotfire configuration tool, without having to export the file. For instructions, see Manually editing the server configuration in the configuration tool.
