Configure Runtime services

Services overview

The Semarchy xDI Runtime exposes multiple services:

  • An HTTP (REST and SOAP) Service, exposing endpoints to communicate with the Runtime and also start deliveries. Its default port is 42200.

  • A built-in Scheduler Service.

You may have to configure these services to accomodate network and security rules.

Configure services

You can configure these services in the following section of the engineParameters.xml configuration file.

Example 1. Service configuration
<parameters>
  <...>
  <engineParameters>
	<...>
	<!-- Services startup -->
	<parameter name="launchSchedulerEngine" value="true"/>
	<parameter name="launchExecutionEngine" value="true"/>
	<parameter name="httpHost" value="localhost"/>
	<...>
	<!-- Services Ports -->
	<parameter name="httpServerPort" value="42200"/>
	<...>
  </engineParameters>
  <...>
</parameters>

The following table lists the parameters available to configure these services and their listening ports.

Parameter Default value Description

launchExecutionEngine
