Default: 48

Valid values: Positive integer

*HTTP_PORT

Port to use to communicate with the built-in HTTP server.

If PPM is in stand-alone mode (that is, it is not integrated with an external Web server), then PPM clients must have access to the HTTP_PORT.

If PPM is integrated with an external Web server, then client HTTP traffic is routed through the EXTERNAL_WEB_PORT. However, even in that case, the PPM Server still uses the *HTTP_PORT internally to run reports. In this case, it is not necessary to make the *HTTP_PORT externally accessible to PPM clients (and thus, the port need not be exposed outside of the PPM Server).

Note: If you are integrating PPM with Application Lifecycle Management, then you must set the parameter to a number less than 32767.

Default: 8080

Valid values: Unique port greater than 1024 and distinct from the Web server, SQL*Net, and RMI ports.

If you set this parameter to true, PPM ignores negative unmet demand value in the calculation of forecast labor cost.

If you set this parameter to false, PPM does not ignore negative unmet demand value (regards the negative unmet demand value as it is) in the calculation of forecast labor cost.

Default: true

Valid values: true, false

IGNORE_UNMET_
DEMAND_THRESHOLD

When the position's daily unmet demand is smaller than the threshold, its unmet demand is ignored and the position is regarded as fulfilled.

When the unmet demand is negative (over-allocation), PPM compares its absolute value with the threshold.

Default: 0.000001
IGNORE_POOLS_WITH_
ONLY_PAST_RESOURCE_
PARTICIPATION

When you add a resource as the requested resource of a position, PPM automatically fills the position's attributes based on the resource details. If the resource have allocations in different resource pools in different time periods, PPM by default lists all these resource pools for you to select one for the position.

Now, if this parameter is set to true, PPM only lists the resource pools that have the resource's allocations in the future.

Default value: false

Valid values: true, false

I18N_CARET_DIRECTION

  • The LDAP_URL_FULL parameter supersedes the LDAP_URL parameter. That is, if a value is set for both in the server.conf file, LDAP_URL_FULL is used. If the URLs specified for LDAP_URL_FULL do not have a DN value, the value set for LDAP_BASE_DN is used.
Format: ldap://ldap.

Note:

  • To specify a space character inside a URL, use the URL encoding scheme, and replace the space with "%20". For example, if you have an organizational unit called "My Org Unit", then specify "My%20Org%20Unit" in the LDAP URL.
  • The LDAP_URL_FULL parameter supersedes the LDAP_URL parameter. That is, if a value is set for both in the server.conf file, LDAP_URL_FULL is used. If URLs specified for LDAP_URL_FULL do not have a DN value, the value set for LDAP_BASE_DN is used.

MSP_PROJECT_
CUSTOM_FIELD
Microsoft Project includes a set of pre-defined text fields (Text1, Text2, Text3, and so on) that users can use to store whatever they want. By default, PPM uses the Text30 field at the project level in Microsoft Project to store information about the PPM project with which the Microsoft Project file is associated.
If you already use the Text30 field in Microsoft Project, you can use this parameter to specify the Microsoft Project field for PPM to use.

Caution: Do not change this parameter value after the Microsoft Project integration has been used.

Default: Text30
MSPS_RESOURCE_
CUSTOM_FIELD
Used to specify which enterprise custom resource field name is to be used by the Plug-in for PPM during enterprise resource mapping.
Make sure that you specify a value for this parameter for each resource on all MSP Servers, and that the value uniquely identifies a resource across all MSP Servers. Use this parameter only when working with multiple MSP servers.
Default: none
MY_LINKS_MAX_
COUNT
Maximum number of links a user can add to the My Links menu in the standard interface. Default: 100
Valid values:
Positive integer
**NLS_DATE_<NLS_LANGUAGE> Language used to display dates, by locale, on a multilingual PPM system. You can specify NLS_DATE_<NLS_LANGUAGE> using all languages installed on a PPM instance.
Although values are set during installation when the administrator selects the languages to install, the administrator can also add these values to the server.conf file manually.
For example, if you install Korean and Brazilian Portuguese languages after you install PPM, you would add the following to the server.conf file: com.kintana.core.server.NLS_DATE_KOREAN=GENERIC_M and com.kintana.core.server.NLS_DATE_BRAZILIAN_PORTUGUESE=GENERIC_M
For guidance on what values to set for this parameter, see the Oracle Database Globalization Support Guide(http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/index.html).
Valid values:
Any Oracle-supported values
NLS_SORT_<NLS_
LANGUAGE
>
Sort order of search results displayed on a multilingual PPM system. You can specify NLS_SORT_<NLS_LANGUAGE> values for all of the languages installed on a PPM instance.
Although values are set during installation when the administrator selects the languages to install, the administrator can also add these values to the server.conf file manually.
For example, if you install Korean and Brazilian Portuguese languages after you install PPM, you would add the following to the server.conf file: com.kintana.core.server.NLS_DATE_KOREAN=GENERIC_M and com.kintana.core.server.NLS_DATE_BRAZILIAN_PORTUGUESE=GENERIC_M
For guidance on what values to set for this parameter, see the Oracle Database Globalization Support Guide(http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/index.html).

Time Management uses this value to determine the earliest previous fiscal year that users can specify in the Fiscal Year and Data Range fields on a financial summary.

Note: This parameter is also applied to snapshots of financial summaries, but is applied relative to the fiscal year each snapshot was taken, and not relative to the current fiscal year.

Default: 2

Valid values:
Integer between 0 and 20

ODATA_LINK_BASE_URL

OPTIMIZATION_
ITERATION_

Note: This parameter also affects generation of the Efficient Frontier curve.

Default: 100
(iterations)

OPTIMIZER_NUMBER_
OF_TIMESHIFTS

Default: 6
(months)

**ORACLE_APPS_
ENABLED

Determines whether PPM is to be integrated with Oracle Apps.

You must set this parameter to true for installations using Deployment Management to integrate with Oracle Apps through Object Migrator or GL Migrator. If you use Object Migrator with PPM, you must specify a value.

Default: false

Valid values:
true, false

ORACLE_APPS_VERSION

Version of Oracle Apps used.

For releases R11, R11i, and R12, specify R11.

Default: R11

Valid values:

PACKAGE_LOG_EXT

Extension used for package log files.

Default: html

PACKAGE_LOG_HEADER

Prefix used for package log file names.

Default: N/A

*PASSWORD_

*PM_NUM_EDIT_ASGMTS

Maximum number of assignments that can be displayed for editing on the Enter Actuals page in Project Management.

PORTLET_EXEC_
TIMEOUT

Amount of time (in seconds) a portlet's SQL statement is to run before it is automatically disconnected from the database.

This parameter is used to limit long-running queries in portlets, which may be caused by adding portlets without filtering criteria. Used to avoid excessive database CPU processing when users end their sessions before processing has completed.

Note: Increase the value of PORTLET_EXEC_TIMEOUT only as a last resort. This setting has system-wide performance impact. If you must increase the value, specify a value such as 30, and not a high value such as 200.

Default: 20
