Question

Prconfig.xml file settings takes precedences over DSS?

Hi all,

if a prconfig setting is defined in a prconfig.xml file and is also defined through a Dynamic System Setting, the prconfig.xml takes precedence or the DSS one?

I could find the following PDN article :

This article says the following :

https://community.pega.com/knowledgebase/articles/system-administration/creating-and-modifying-dynamic-system-settings

In general, if a prconfig setting is defined in a prconfig.xml file and is also defined through a Dynamic System Setting, the prconfig.xml takes precedence.

What does it mean "In general"? As far as i knew DSS always takes precedences over prconfig.xml file settings, that is what i always thought and it makes sense as it is easier to configure the DSS rather than downloading, editing the prconfig.xml file which in some application servers a undeply and redeploy of war file needs to be done. Also in cloud system have to be done through a service request.

Regards,

Israel

Hi,

This is correct that prconfig.xml take precedence over the stored value in DSS. You can refer the below link,

It is recommend to use only Dynamic System Setting until changes in prconfig.xml file is really required.
