For a complete list of configuration properties and how to set them in your application server, see the section Configuration Properties.

Configuration Properties

The MobileFirst Analytics Receiver Server can start successfully with following additional configuration.

The configuration is done through JNDI properties on both the MobileFirst Server and the MobileFirst Analytics Receiver Server. Additionally, the MobileFirst Analytics Receiver Server supports the use of environment variables to control configuration. Environment variables take precedence over JNDI properties.

The Analytics Receiver runtime web application must be restarted for any changes in these properties to take effect. It is not necessary to restart the entire application server.

To set a JNDI property on WebSphere Application Server Liberty, add a tag to the server.xml file as follows.

<jndiEntry jndiName="{PROPERTY NAME}" value="{PROPERTY VALUE}}" />

To set a JNDI property on Tomcat, add a tag to the context.xml file as follows.

<Environment name="{PROPERTY NAME}" value="{PROPERTY VALUE}" type="java.lang.String" override="false" />

The JNDI properties on WebSphere Application Server are available as environment variables.

  • In the WebSphere Application Server console, select Applications → Application Types → WebSphere Enterprise applications.
  • Select the MobileFirst Administration Service application.
  • In Web Module Properties, click Environment entries for Web Modules to display the JNDI properties.
