Fine-tuning with system properties

System properties configure application-wide settings. Some of the settings correspond to configuration elements in the Admin Console user interface.

Fastpath: Admin Console: System > Management > System Properties

System properties are name-value pairs that configure particular aspects of Jive. Names and values for system properties and extended properties are case-sensitive.

Many of the system properties are tied to other settings in the Admin Console so that changing the value in the console changes the value of the corresponding system property. For more information on the properties and their effects, see System properties reference. For more information, refer to Undocumented Jive System Properties on Worx.

Warning: Changes to some system properties have a dramatic impact on the system — a wrong value can break the application. Generally, you should leave system properties unchanged unless you're asked to change it by Support. You might also change a system property value if the change is part of a more significant effort to customize the application.
