IDM 7.2.2

Disable automatic configuration updates

By default, IDM monitors files in the conf directory periodically for any changes to the configuration. This functionality is configured in the following properties in your conf/ file:


Sets the interval at which files are polled for changes. 2000 milliseconds by default.


Specifies whether files should be monitored. true by default. In a production system, you should disable automatic polling for updates to prevent untested configuration changes from disrupting your identity service.

If automatic polling is enabled, IDM immediately uses changes to scripts called from a JSON configuration file.


Allows IDM to start up and load configuration when there aren’t currently any configs stored in the repository. true by default.
