MID Server configuration

MID Server configuration

Administrators must configure a MID Server to ensure that it has access to sufficient system resources, probes the proper data sources, and communicates with the instance as expected.

You must complete all the steps in MID Server Installation before attempting any of the configuration steps explained here.

Restart a MID Server after any configuration change for the changes to take effect.

Note: All new MID Servers must be validated before use. Validation ensures that the MID Server is trusted to access credentials used by the instance for automations. For instructions, see Validate and invalidate the MID Server.

Using special characters in an XML file

The XML specification defines five predefined entities that represent special characters, and requires that all XML processors honor them. If these characters are used in a password, you will experience unexpected results.

The following characters represent the five pre-defined entities:
  • "
  • &
  • '
  • <
  • >
If you use the pre-defined entity characters in an XML file, such as the MID Server configuration file, you need to encode them. To encode pre-defined entities into an XML document:
  • replace " with &quot;
  • replace & with &amp;
  • replace ' with &apos;
  • replace < with &lt;
  • replace > with &gt;

For example, to specify the password as test& in the MID Server config.xml file:

<parameter encrypt="true" name="mid.instance.password" value="test&amp;"/>
