2.4 Making Custom Changes

By default, the /OperationsCenter_install_path/config/Formula.properties file stores standard configuration settings. Most of these configurations can be set and changed using the Configuration Manager.

However, some settings are unique to the Formula.properties file and cannot be configured using Configuration Manager. To add to or modify these customized settings, it is best to create and use a Formula.custom.properties file to ensure retention when the Formula.properties is overwritten during product reinstallations, upgrades, or when settings are changed using Configuration Manager.

Custom configuration settings saved in the Formula.custom.properties file supersede values in the Formula.properties file. In other words, if the same option is specified in both the Formula.custom.properties and Formula.properties files, Operations Center uses the value as specified in the Formula.custom.properties file.

To create a custom configuration file:

  1. In a text editor, create a new file in the /OperationsCenter_install_path/config directory and save it with the following name:


    Verify that no additional file extension is added in the file name.

  2. Add properties as necessary by copying and pasting property entries from the Formula.properties file and editing them as desired.

  3. Stop and restart the Operations Center server for changes to take effect.
