Manage Cluster-Wide Properties

The Manage Cluster-Wide Properties task is used to configure settings for your node. If your node is part of a cluster, all other nodes in the cluster inherit the new settings as well.

The
Manage Cluster-Wide Properties
task is used to configure settings for your
API Gateway
node. If your node is part of a cluster, all other nodes in the cluster inherit the new settings as well.
Assertions that can use context variables can also indirectly read cluster-wide properties through the
${gateway.
<clusterProperty>
}
variable. For more information, see Multivalued Context Variables.
For a list of all the properties that can be configured, see Gateway Cluster Properties.
It is not possible to reference context variables within a cluster-wide property. The variable does not resolve at run time.
To manage cluster-wide properties
:
  1. In the Policy Manager, select
    [Tasks] > Global Settings > Manage Cluster-Wide Properties
    from the Main Menu (on the browser client, from the Manage menu). The Manage Cluster-Wide Properties appear.
  2. Select one of the following actions:

      Key field
      which is auto-complete.
    3. Enter a value for the property in the
      Value
      field. The value must be a valid value listed in the property's description. Note that this only applies to cluster properties with clearly defined values; properties with freeform values (e.g., log.levels) are not validated.
      For a description of the format of expected values, see "Time Units" under Gateway Cluster Properties.
    4. Click [
