Approval Server configuration file settings

The  AR System Administration: AR System Configuration Generic UI form is the AR System configuration form. It contains the AR System server configuration settings and is created when you install AR System server.

In most cases, you do not need to enter the configuration settings manually. When you make a server configuration change in the Server Information dialog, or in the Server Settings window of Approval Server, AR System enters the configuration parameters and their new values in the configuration file.

This section describes configuration file settings specific to Approval Server. See Updating configuration settings by using the AR System Configuration Generic UI form.

This setting causes Approval Server to poll AR System server for pending work. It is intended to operate as a backup method, not the primary contact method. Under normal circumstances, AR System server contacts Approval Server when work is pending. With this setting in place, Approval Server polls AR System server only if it does not receive any signal from AR System server in the specified time. Specify the interval in seconds. The minimum is 30 seconds, and the maximum is 3600 seconds (one hour). For example:
