Place the administration interface in read only mode

Managed by | Updated .

Background

The Funnelback administration interface can be placed in read only mode which prevents logged in users from making any changes to configuration.

Read only mode us useful when a change freeze needs to be implemented during upgrades and routine maintenance.

Steps

Enabling read only mode requires back end access to the Funnelback server and read only mode applies as soon as the global.cfg is saved.

To enable read only mode log in to the Funnelback server and edit the $SEARCH_HOME/conf/global.cfg, adding the following line: setting value to "true" or "false" to disable.

$SEARCH_HOME/conf/global.cfg
#Enable
admin.read-only-mode=true
#Disable
#admin.read-only-mode=false
