Monitoring Preferences

The Preference Store Manager view allows administrators to monitor preferences changed by any user for the Infinity Process Platform Portal and Infinity Process Platform engine. You can open this view from the Administration Perspective launch panel. By default, preferences for the default partition are displayed.

Whenever the user changes and saves any preference in the Infinity Process Platform Portal, e.g. via Portal Configuration, the Preference Store Manager displays all the preferences for that view. For example, the user clears the check box Close Related Views for the Activity Panel setting from the Portal Configuration view. The Preference Store Manager displays all the preferences for the Portal Configuration view. Thus, the Administrator can use the Preference Store Manager view as a tool to investigate and debug issues related to the preference store and to provide more visibility on current preferences.
