Set configuration parameters

Site and space admins can set configuration parameters that determine how ALM Octane works.


Admins can set configuration parameters from the Settings > Site and Settings > Spaces.

Tip: Admins can also set configuration parameters using the REST API. For details, see Setting configuration parameters with the REST API.

For a comprehensive list of all publicly-available configuration parameters, see Configuration parameters.

Admins only see the parameters that are relevant for them. For example, space admins can only see the space-level parameters that they have the ability to change. There may be other space-level parameters that only the site admin can change.

The following table shows which types of parameters admins can configure.

Admin Site parameters Space parameters
Space admin (on-premises)
Space admin (SaaS) Open a support ticket
Site admin (on-premises)

The values of parameters set on the space level override the values of the same parameters set at the site level. For example, if a site admin sets a site-level parameter called DEFAULT_LANGUAGE to lang.en for English, and the space admin changes the same DEFAULT_LANGUAGE parameter on the site level to, the default language for the space will be English while the rest of the site will be in German.
