Configuring GAX Properties

After GAX starts for the first time, it generates the following files and folders in the installation directory:

  • conf/gax.properties
  • webapp
  • logs
  • jsp

You can configure GAX by editing the gax.properties file. The options specified in the gax.properties file are used by GAX before it connects to Configuration Server. To set additional configuration options, see Configuration Options.

Read more general information about Java-based .properties files here.

The following options can be configured:

Note: It is recommended to specify the time zone value in canonical format instead of three-letter time zone IDs. For example, Australia/Sydney, Asia/Kolkata, America/Los_Angeles, and so on.
