Set Web client preferences from the server

You can define global Web client preferences from the Web configuration file (web.xml). This file contains global preferences that you can change by editing the file with any text or XML editor. Any changes you make to this file must conform to XML syntax requirements.

The settings you define in the web.xml file determine the default client preferences for all Web clients. Users can override some preferences however, directly from the URL. See the comments in the web configuration file for information about which preferences users can set from the URL.

You must have administrative access to the server operating system to use this procedure.

  1. Open the web.xml file in a text editor.
    This file is located in the sm/WEB-INF folder of your application server installation.
  2. Add or edit the preferences in the file.
  3. Save the file and restart the Web application server.
    All Web clients that log in to the Service Manager server use the new client preferences you defined.
